West Covina established a historic preservation ordinance in 2007 that allows for the designation of both landmarks and historic districts, though the City does require owner consent for both the designation of individual landmarks and the inclusion of properties within historic districts. The City does not have a dedicated historic preservation commission.
West Covina’s first historic resource survey was completed in 2006 and is citywide in scope. However, some of the city’s notable postwar era resources were less than fifty years old at the time and not identified through the survey, indicating the importance of conducting survey updates every five years.
