The Historic Homeowner Education Program of the City of Los Angeles has worked to improve awareness and understanding of the City’s HPOZ program and of good historic rehabilitation practices, particularly within Los Angeles’ diverse low- and moderate-income historic neighborhoods.
The program includes a brochure, entitled “HPOZ Living,” that explains the City’s HPOZ program, as well as a 32-page Historic Rehabilitation Guide for owners of historic homes. You may download these publications by clicking on the links at the bottom of this page. Thousands of copies of these new publications are available in English, Spanish, and Korean, and may also be reproduced in additional languages in the coming months.
The Historic Homeowner Education Program has won multiple honors. The Department of City Planning was recognized for its work on these HPOZ materials with a Preservation Award from the Los Angeles Conservancy. The Los Angeles and California Chapters of the American Planning Association gave planning awards to the project. And the State Office of Historic Preservation and California State Parks honored the project with a Governor's Historic Preservation Award.
The Department of City Planning wishes to thank the City's Construction Services Committee for providing financial support to this important project. We hope that these materials will assist property owners throughout Los Angeles in becoming good stewards of their historic homes.
