The Beverly Hills City Council adopted a Historic Preservation Ordinance in 2012 as a way to honor, protect, and preserve the most exceptional properties in Beverly Hills. Through a series of public meetings, the Planning Commission and Cultural Heritage Commission crafted a comprehensive update to this Ordinance in 2014-15. The City Council adopted the revised Historic Preservation Ordinance on July 21, 2015. The Ordinance was most recently amended on February 16, 2016, with four follow-up items to the July 2015 update.
