We hope that you can help us spread the word to your constituents about the citywide Historic Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ) Conference on Saturday, May 30, 2009, 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. at Angelica Lutheran Church, 1345 S. Burlington Ave., in the Pico Union HPOZ.

The Department of City Planning is partnering with the Los Angeles Conservancy for the eighth straight year to organize this special event focused on the City's historic districts, the 24 HPOZs.  In the past, the conference has been largely a training session for HPOZ Board members.  But this year, we're seeking to build broader awareness and understanding of our HPOZ program by inviting any and all who are interested in historic preservation. 

We'll be offering a stimulating day of workshops, tours, and networking, including:

* The first HPOZ Awards Luncheon, honoring outstanding projects within the city's 24 HPOZs. 

* Pico Union Walking Tours, including the Alvarado Terrace National Register District

* A hands-on workshop on window repair

* Breakout sessions to include:

    • Introduction on the basics of HPOZs for homeowners and residents
    • Advice for new and proposed HPOZ's
    • Advanced sessions for current HPOZ Board Members

The cost for the conference is $20, which includes continental breakfast and lunch.  To register, please visit www.laconservancy.org/neighborhoods or contact Flora Chou at fchou@laconservancy.org or (213) 430-4211 by May 16, 2009.
