City Council Approves

Miracle Mile HPOZ by

Unanimous Vote!

On Tuesday, March 28, 2017, the Los Angeles City Council voted 13-0 to approve  the Miracle Mile HPOZ. The council adopted the boundaries recommended last week by the Planning and Land Use Committee [see map].

Councilmember David Ryu spoke of the importance of protecting our historic community before the vote was taken. MMRA President James O’Sullivan thanked Ryu and Councilmember Herb Wesson for their support.

A special bulletin about the Miracle Mile Historic Preservation Overlay Zone – the 35th HPOZ to be created in Los Angeles – will be issued next week with more information.

Many thanks to the hundreds of residents who contributed in so many ways to preserve our lovely neighborhood for generations to come!
