ECHO PARK COMMUNITY DESIGN OVERLAY DISTRICT
The Echo Park Community Design Overlay District (CDO) Plan provides guidelines and standards for public and private development projects within the District. The intent of the CDO District is to provide guidance and direction in the design of new buildings and the rehabilitation and repair of existing homes and buildings that contribute to an attractive community with a walkable and desirable residential neighborhood. In addition, the CDO would protect the culturally and architecturally significant architecture of the area, including the historic development pattern of the community as a streetcar suburb. These Guidelines and Standards bring about an overall pedestrian orientation and neighborhood beautification for the Echo Park Neighborhood.
HISTORIC PRESERVATION OVERLAY ZONE (HPOZ): ANGELINO HEIGHTS
Often called Los Angeles’ first suburb, the hilltop residential area of Angelino Heights lies two miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, near the communities of Echo Park and Silver Lake. The area was planned as a respectable, genteel Victorian neighborhood for Los Angeles’ late 19th century upper-middle class. The first designated HPOZ in the city, Angelino Heights contains some of the best remaining examples of Victorian-era architectural styles in Los Angeles, as well as later examples of Craftsman and Mission Revival styles. Located within the HPOZ, the 1300 block of Carroll Avenue is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and contains the highest concentration of 19th century Victorian homes in Los Angeles.
The Angelino Heights HPOZ Board, comprised of local stakeholders with expertise in building, architecture, preservation and real estate, meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month, though meetings are canceled if there are no business items to discuss. Meetings take place at 534 East Edgware Road, Los Angeles, CA 90062. Agendas for HPOZ meetings can be found here.
