Agoura Hills

Agoura Hills does not currently have a historic preservation ordinance.

While the City has focused attention on maintaining and operating the ca. 1850s Reyes Adobe, a significant, City-owned historic resource, Agoura Hills has not yet enacted policies aimed at protecting privately owned, historic resources. A few of the city’s older structures in the Old Agoura Overlay District are protected through conditional use permits.
