Burbank has transformed its approach to historic preservation by making significant improvements to its program since 2009.
The city completed a citywide survey and historic context statement in that year, adopted the popular Mills Act program in 2010, and has begun to designate local landmarks.
The city updated its historic resource management ordinance in 2011, with notable amendments including the ability to designate local historic districts.
The city has further demonstrated its commitment to historic preservation through public education and outreach via the web. Like a growing number of communities, Burbank has a dedicated webpage for its historic preservation program that includes links to its historic context report and preservation plan. To engage the next generation, Burbank has also developed a kid’s section on its website.
