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 complete! All of the field work is finished and we have posted all of the results on the Survey Findings page of this website. We are also working hard to integrate all survey data in HistoricPlacesLA, the City's historic resources inventory and management system.

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

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