How to Make Successful Changes

in Hancock Park’s HPOZ

With the new year a lot of Hancock Park homeowners

have a resolution to make some changes to their homes. If

those changes change the street visible façade of a house,Cheap Uggs Online

which includes hardscape, then the changes will need to be

reviewed through the HPOZ process. The place to begin is

to read the Preservation Plan for the Hancock Park HPOZ

with your architect or contractor to make sure your plans

comply. Then consult with the LA Planning Department

staff on the approval process. The City planner responsible for

Hancock Park is Matthew Glesne (213-978-1198 or matthew.

glesne@lacity.org). If the Planning Department determines

that your project should be reviewed by the HPOZ Board

the project will be put on the agenda for the Board. Once

the Planning Department and the HPOZ Board (if review

is required) have approved the plans, then permits can be

issued by the LA Department of Building and Safety and your

project can proceed.

The Preservation Plan can be found on the HPHOA’48

web site: http://www.hancockpark.org, on the Los Angeles

Planning Department web site: http://preservation.lacity.org/

hpoz/la/hancock-park or by contacting Matthew Glesne. If

HPOZ Board review is required your project will be put on the

agenda. Meetings are held twice a month and the schedules

can be found at website: http://cityplanning.lacity.org under

“Meetings & Hearings”; click on “Central Los Angeles” and

then “Agendas”. It is highly recommended that you attend an

HPOZ Board meeting with preliminary plans for a consultation

as well as a chance to see how the process works.
