The Office of Historic Resources

The Department of City Planning’s Office of Historic Resources (OHR) is working to create a comprehensive, state-of-the-art, and balanced historic preservation program for the City of Los Angeles. The OHR is:

  • Undertaking a pioneering citywide historic resources survey
  • Integrating historic preservation into Los Angeles’ planning process
  • Serving as an expert resource on preservation within the Department of City Planning and for other City departments
  • Providing responsive customer service in conducting historic preservation reviews
  • Launching this web site as a “one-stop-shop” for information on Los Angeles’ historic preservation initiatives.
