Call for Residents and Architects Interested in Serving on the Miracle Mile North Historic Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ) Board

The Planning Department Office of Historic Resources is looking for historic preservation-minded individuals and architects to serve as board members for the Miracle Mile North HPOZ. Serving on an HPOZ Board is a great opportunity to get to know the historic neighborhoods of Los Angeles and become a part of the design review process that shapes these communities.

Specifically, we are looking for new board members willing to serve on the Miracle Mile North Board who would be appointed by the Cultural Heritage Commission. The appointees must meet one of two criteria under the HPOZ Ordinance: 1) They must be a licensed architect; or 2) an owner of property or resident of the district. The term would begin in July 2015 and run through June 2019. The board is scheduled to meet twice a month on the second and fourth Wednesday at the Fairfax Branch Library. Meetings are cancelled when there are no items to review.
