SurveyLA Group 1: West Adams-Baldwin Hills-Leimert Community Plan Area

  • Southern California

ARG led the survey of the West Adams-Baldwin Hills-Leimert Community Plan Area (CPA) for SurveyLA, Los Angeles’ first comprehensive program to identify significant historic resources throughout the city. The CPA is located in the southeast quadrant of the City of Los Angeles. The patterns of development in this area, led by streetcar and automobile suburbanization, were largely conducive to widespread single-family residential and streetcar-related commercial development. Roughly 33,410 parcels within the CPA were surveyed. After a comprehensive reconnaissance-level survey, ARG used the Field Guide Survey System (FiGSS) historic context-based survey methodology to evaluate resources eligible for the National Register, California Register, and local designation. ARG staff utilized tablet PCs in the field. Findings were presented to a Peer Review Committee prior to public release.
