Important Issues

The Conservancy works to preserve irreplaceable historic resources throughout L.A. County. We work proactively and in response to specific threats. We work with property owners, public officials, and other stakeholders to find mutually beneficial solutions through preservation and reuse strategies.

When needed, the Conservancy asks for specific help on issues, from writing letters of support to attending important public hearings. If you haven't already, please sign up for our Preservation Action Alert e-mails to stay informed on when and how you can take direct action.

Learn more about specific issues below. If you know of a historic place that is threatened with demolition or excessive alteration, please notify us right away at or call (213) 623-2489.
