Proposed Ard Eevin Highlands Historic District
At its September 24, 2007 meeting, the Historic Preservation Commission conducted an initial review and made a preliminary determination that the area may qualify as a historic district, and authorized that a petition be distributed among the area's homeowners requesting that the 2003 Historic Resource Survey of the Cumberland Heights area be updated. This determination must be confirmed by a historic resources survey. The historic district overlay zone will not be implemented without the consent of a majority of property owners and approval of the City Council.
The proposed district consists of 86 homes, primarily built in the 1920s and 1930s. Staff is planning a public meeting at which the proposed district will be presented to homeowners in the area, along with information about the process of creating a historic district

AMERICAN PLANNING ASSOCIATION AWARDS
The City of Glendale received the American Planning Association, Los Angeles Section, Planning Landmark Award for the Design Guidelines for Residential Buildings in Adopted Historic Districts. Click here to see the guidelines.
The City of Glendale also received the American Planning Association, Los Angeles Section, Comprehensive Plan Award for the Downtown Specific Plan (23.7 MB) and Mobility Study (75,238 KB).
The City of Glendale has received the Los Angeles Conservancy’s prestigious Preservation Award in 2007 for the City’s Design Guidelines for Residential Buildings in Adopted Historic Districts. These guidelines were developed by a consultant (Architectural Resources Group) working with staff and a 19-member Citizen's Advisory Committee. The Advisory Committee was composed of a very broad range of interests and viewpoints, and worked hard to achieve consensus on a document that would be fair, practical, and easy to understand. The Guidelines were further reviewed by the Historic Preservation Commission, the Planning Commission and the City Council, all of which added valuable input and critiques of the document. The process itself was a model of citizen participation - people with passionate beliefs came together, put aside their differences and produced a work of exceptional quality.
