Survey LA is a multi-year project with the goal of identifying significant historic places throughout Los Angeles and the people and events that formed our social and cultural history.
Beginning in 2009, professional survey teams will canvass the City, neighborhood by neighborhood, to assess the potential historic significance of properties. They need your help to identify those places that may not be architecturally significant, but are associated with an important person who contributed to the development of the city, or with an event of social significance. In order to find those places, you are invited to share your stories with them.
Visit www.Surveyla.org and click on the MyhistoricLA link where you can tell them about what is important in your neighborhood. The website is extremely interesting and packed with information about the whole process of surveying Los Angeles.
