L.A. Historic Neighborhoods Conference (2016)

The theme of the 2016 L.A. Historic Neighborhoods Conference was community character, from tree-lined streets of historic homes, to clusters of older duplexes and bungalow courts, to "background buildings" in industrial neighborhoods. 

On October 15, 2016, nearly 300 people came together to exchange ideas and learn more about a range of topics affecting L.A.’s diverse neighborhoods and communities, including mansionization, historic and conservation districts, community advocacy, and the City's re:code LA initiative.

The event took place at the historic St. John's Cathedral in the University Park neighborhood and ended with tours of surrounding HPOZs: 27th & 28th Street, Adams-Normandie, North University Park Specific Plan, and University Park.
