MIRACLE MILE HPOZ APPROVED BY COUNCIL COMMITTEE

Los Angeles, CA -- Today, the Planning and Land Use Management Committee approved an Historic Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ) for the Miracle Mile area.

“Today we moved one step closer to preserving the unique, diverse and historic identity of Miracle Mile, while still providing for new housing opportunities along a major transit corridor,” said Councilmember David Ryu. “I want to thank the Planning and Land Use Management Committee, Council President Wesson, the Department of Planning and the Miracle Mile community for all their support. The establishment of a flexible HPOZ for the area will help to further protect over 1,300 historic properties and guide balanced growth in the neighborhood.”

Councilmember Ryu recommended the inclusion of all properties on Olympic Blvd. as well as the properties North of 8th Street with the exception of the properties located to the west of Ogden Dr. and North of 8th Street (includes Orange Grove and west side of Ogden) and the properties on the west side of Orange Grove Ave., south of 8th street. These boundaries are more consistent with the original survey area and were certified by the Cultural Heritage Commission.

Extensive outreach was conducted by the council office and planning staff. Over 4,300 letters were sent requesting neighborhood feedback and the overwhelming majority of responses were supportive of the HPOZ and reinclusion of boundaries changed by the City Planning Commission. 533 households were in support of the HPOZ and 153 households opposed to it.

The Miracle Mile HPOZ will now move to the full City Council for a final vote.
