The Los Angeles Conservancy has just launched a "Neighborhoods" section of their website that integrates information about historic districts in LA County with a Google map. "With nearly 100 locally designated historic neighborhoods in sixteen cities across the county, these districts represent a range of architectural styles and are an important part of the historic fabric of Greater Los Angeles," explains a press release about the endeavor.

Information you can glean from exploring this section includes: General information about the process of creating local historic districts; The benefits of preserving these unique communities (including common myths); Basic criteria for designation, preservation protections, maintenance, and oversight; How to respond to code violations in City of Los Angeles Historic Preservation Overlay Zones; Resources including articles, brochures, websites, and FAQs.
