Back Up to Bat: Preservation!

New, 4 comments

While saying the current draft falls short, the OpEd section of the Los Angeles Times weighs in on updates to that preservation ordinance, which is being heard today before the City Planning Commission. One part the editors like: "Property owners would be entitled to earlier notice that their properties have been nominated for monument status. This makes the process fairer, and it also increases the likelihood that the owner will become a partner in preserving the city's cultural heritage." As previously noted, the new ordinance, if approved, will grant the Cultural Heritage Commission the ability to deny, not just temporarily delay, the demolition of Historic-Cultural Monuments.
