Survey LA

About Survey LA

Partially funded by the Getty Foundation, Survey LA (the Los Angeles Historic Resources Survey) is an unprecedented, five-year citywide initiative to identify significant historic resources throughout our city -- including ornate historic theaters, Modernist commercial buildings, exuberant Art Deco structures, Craftsman bungalow neighborhoods, and places that shaped our city's social history and its diverse communities.

This half-hour program will take you to Little Tokyo, South Los Angeles, Hollywood, and the San Fernando Valley for interviews with local leaders who discuss how the survey will help preserve the places that make Los Angeles special. Survey LA will help policymakers, property owners, and community members make intelligent decisions about development and historic preservation.
