Los Angeles Historic Districts Claim Victory in Court Case
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - Los Angeles Conservancy, Historic Preservation Overlay Zoning, Windsor Square, Hancock Park, California Environmental Quality Act

Last month, the preservation community in Los Angeles breathed a sigh of relief when a lawsuit filed by property rights advocates against the city to overturn Historic Preservation Overlay Zoning (HPOZ) in the neighborhood of Windsor Square was denied. This is the latest in a series of lawsuits stemming around the designation of HPOZ in the neighborhoods of Windsor Square and Hancock Park that could have potentially seen far-reaching impacts across the city. The Windsor Square case included allegations that HPOZ designation was a violation of the California Environmental Quality Act, as well as an infringement of the property rights of homeowners.

An alliance against historic designation argued that HPOZ designation would actually harm the environment by limiting conservation measures such as solar panels. The judge rejected these claims, and ruled to uphold the designation of Windsor Square HPOZ. The Hancock Park HPOZ decision still awaits final City Council action.

The Los Angeles Conservancy has been an essential supporter of HPOZ during these past years of dispute. For more information about their Neighborhood Initiative, visit www.laconservancy.org.
