Historic Resource Surveys

Citywide Historic Resources Survey

The City of Beverly Hills Community Development Department is undertaking its citywide historic resources survey to identify places of social, historical and architectural significance.  Survey teams and photographers will be in various areas of the City completing the surveys.  The visual assessments are completed from the public right-of-way and include photographing properties and taking notes using laptop and tablet computers.  Surveyors will not collect any private or personal information and the survey teams will not need to interview owners or residents.

The overall purpose of the survey is to record information on potential historic resources in Beverly Hills.  No properties will receive formal historic designation as a result of the surveys; this is a separate process subject to public notification, participation and review.

The City has contracted with the consulting firm, Historic Resources Group, to complete the surveys.
