Temple City

Temple City does not currently have a historic preservation ordinance.

A partial reconnaissance survey in 2012 was planned as a citywide survey, made possible by a National Trust Los Angeles Preservation Fund grant.  Yet no documentation was included in the completed survey, and the city attorney decided it would not be valid for determining historical resource status per CEQA.

The scoring details for this community appear below. To see scores for all communities, compare specific communities and categories, and learn more about the Report Card, visit our Report Card microsite.
