Hosted by

Twenty-nine Los Angeles neighborhoods, from Angeleno Heights to Vinegar Hill, have official restrictions on architectural change to preserve their historic character.

Gideon's story came to us from KCRW's Independent Producer Project. He says the Department of City Planning has asked for new money for neighborhood conservation staff.
