Mills Act Program
The City of Beverly Hills' Mills Act Program is a self-directed, financial incentive program for owners of locally-designated historic properties.
A Mills Act Contract is a 10-year contract between the owner of a landmark property listed on the Local Register of Historic Properties and the City of Beverly Hills. The purpose of a Mills Act Contract is to provide property tax relief for an owner in return for the long-term maintenance and preservation of the property’s historic features and character.
In order for your property to be considered for a Mills Act contract under the current pilot program, it must be a designated City of Beverly Hills Landmark and satisfy the Mills Act Pilot Program requirements. If you are unsure if your property is a designated or eligible landmark please contact City staff.

Historic Incentive Permit
With the advent of the Historic Incentive Permit, the Planning Commission may grant a permit to modify development standards that would otherwise apply to historic properties. Types of incentives include waivers from any number of zoning regulations based on the needs of each project, considered on a case-by-case basis by discretionary review. As a pre-requisite, the property must be a designated local historic landmark.
