About SurveyLA

SurveyLA – the Los Angeles Historic Resources Survey – is Los Angeles' first-ever comprehensive program to identify significant historic resources throughout our city. The survey marks a coming-of-age for Los Angeles' historic preservation movement, and will serve as a centerpiece for the City’s first truly comprehensive preservation program.

SurveyLA is almost complete! We are finishing up field work in the last survey area -- the Northeast Los Angeles Community Plan Area -- and anticipate the findings will be published by January 2017. The Survey Findings page of this website includes all data published to data.

SurveyLA field methodology is informed by best practices in historic preservation including standards developed by the National Park Service and California Office of Historic Preservation.  

Background

The Office of Historic Resources developed a phasing plan for the completion of SurveyLA field surveys throughout the Los Angeles.
