Professional survey teams are now completing Phase 3 (the final phase) of SurveyLA field surveys. Surveys are in progress in the following Community Plan Areas: Group 7 - Venice, Boyle Heights, Westwood, Wilshire and Group 8 - Vany Nuys - North Sherman Oaks, Chatsworth - Porter Ranch, Northridge, Reseda - West Van Nuys, Granada Hills - Knollwood, Sylmar, Sun Valley - La Tuna Canyon, Sunland - Tujunga. (see the Phasing Plan). As surveys are completed, you can view the survey findings by Community Plan Area.
The survey teams are working through the city using a custom-designed survey database and digitial cameras. They are recording individual resources and potential historic districts which are significant for architecture as well as social and cultural associations.
If there are places in your neighborhood that you want to make sure the survey teams evaluate it's never too late! Please complete a MyHistoricLA form and/or provide us with your research as soon as possible. You can also share your places at MyHistoricLA.org, our interactive "virtual town hall". To organize a broad-based effort to identify important resources in your community see MyHistoricLA: Guide to Public Participation in SurveyLA.
