Huntington Park

Huntington Park has a rich history and many significant resources.

The city adopted a historic preservation ordinance in 2006, Huntington Park’s centennial, after carefully studying effective ordinances in other cities.

One of the ordinance’s most notable provisions is the ability to designate significant public or semi-public interior spaces and signage, in addition to landmarks and historic districts.

The city has designated a range of historic resources including residential structures, civic buildings, and its first historic district.

Huntington Park offers the popular Mills Act property tax abatement program for owners of designated historic properties. Other incentives include reduced planning administrative fees, zoning variances, and a conditional waiver of parking requirements.
