Hollywood Grove, Proposed HPOZs

A Proposed HPOZ in Hollywood

Rows of charming Craftsman and Colonial Revival houses, deep front yards, streets lined with fanciful palms and robust shade trees, and views of the Hollywood Hills just a short distance away: these are just a few of the things that make the Hollywood Grove neighborhood a special place.

Over the next few months the City Planning Department will embark upon a public process to determine whether this patch of urban fabric should be designated for historic protection–or HPOZ–status.

We will be holding a community workshop on Thursday, November 4 from 6:00 P.M. to 7:30 P.M. (the workshop will be informal so come by anytime to participate).  At the workshop we hope to get feedback on the architectural survey that has been prepared for this collection of nearly 140 houses; get feedback on the draft Preservation Plan that has been prepared; and answer any question that you might have.

We will also be holding the official public hearing for this matter on Thursday, November 18 at 6:30.  This is a chance for you to make a statement into the record before the matter is considered by the City Planning Commission (dates have not been set for commission meetings yet).

Both meetings will be held at the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Hollywood at 1711 N Van Ness Ave, 90028.

Below you will find the hearing notice which is being mailed out shortly and a copy of the draft Preservation Plan.  Let us know if you have trouble downloading the document (it’s a large file) and we will send you a hard copy in the mail.

One thought on “A Proposed HPOZ in Hollywood

  1. Wonderful! Los Angeles’ most valuable asset is its vast stretches of R-1 neighborhoods within the Basin itself (no slight to SFV).

    HPOZ’s protect the essence of what makes Los Angeles great.
