L.A. Historic Neighborhoods Conference (2018)

As the housing crisis worsens and new development rises, historic neighborhoods are increasingly vulnerable to demolition and a loss of community character. The 2018 L.A. Historic Neighborhoods Conference focused on the intersection of historic preservation, affordable housing, and the challenge of increasing housing supply.

On October 13, 2018, more than 200 people came together to learn and exchange ideas on a number of challenges facing L.A.’s diverse neighborhoods and communities, from preserving multi-family residences to involving young people in preservation. The event took place at Lincoln High School in Lincoln Heights and featured walking tours of the nearby Lincoln Heights HPOZ, El Sereno Berkshire Craftsman District HPOZ, and the school itself.

Special thanks to all of our presenters, including keynote panel moderator, Saul Gonzalez, KCRW reporter and host of the podcast, There Goes the Neighborhood: Los Angeles
