The Office of Historic Resources developed a phasing plan for the completion of SurveyLA's field surveys, which began in July of 2010. The phasing plan was approved by SurveyLA's Project Advisory Committee and the Cultural Heritage Commission in 2009.
The 35 Community Plans serve as the Land Use Element of the City's General Plan and serve as the organizational structure for the field surveys. The New Community Plans provide Los Angeles communities with more specific, detailed guidance on potential land uses. The survey data in each Plan Area can help ensure that changes proposed to these communities will not adversely affect historic resources. Surveys will also identify historic resources that may offer opportunities for adaptive reuse and economic reinvestment.
Phasing SurveyLA in parallel with the New Community Plan program promotes the OHR's key goal to integrate historic preservation more fully into the City's planning processes. It also offers key opportunities to coordinate the SurveyLA public outreach and participation programs with New Community Plan outreach activities.
