The application for creating LA County’s first historic district here in Altadena (Historic Highlands) is still under consideration. Last month, we reached out to our readers regarding this issue being considered by the Altadena Town Council. The residents that requested the designation worked with the County staff for about two years to meet all of the requirements for such a designation, including approval by over 50% of the property owners within the proposed boundary. While not a requirement of the application, the applicants requested that the Altadena Town Council review the application and offer support to the Board of Supervisors.
Unfortunately, there was confusion at the Land-Use Committee, so no recommendation was made. There seems to be significant concern that the residents may not fully understand the significance of being in such a district. When the Town Council reviewed the proposal and comments from the Land-Use Committee, they expressed that additional public outreach should be conducted before final consideration by the Board of Supervisors.
