City Embarks on Historic Preservation
New Program Preserves Past While Building for the Future
Beverly Hills has always had its own distinctive charm. Now residents and businesses can take pride in a new element of the City’s character – a historic preservation program that affirms and adds to the unique spirit of the community. The City’s historic preservation program is designed to do more than simply pay tribute to the past. By taking care of important landmarks the City of Beverly Hills is also preserving and enriching its renowned quality of life – for both current and future generations. The new program will help protect historic buildings in Beverly Hills. Among other things, it can enhance neighborhoods, add property value and provide learning experiences for students, residents and visitors. If you own a home believed to be historically significant, you can apply to the City’s program through the state Mills Act. The deadline to apply is May 31. Additional incentives for building owners will be shared as the program is further developed.
