The Orange Section of APA California and Preserve Orange County present this virtual
symposium with Ken Bernstein, Principal City Planner and Manager, City of Los Angeles Office of Historic Preservation and Urban Design Studio. Ken has recently published a book entitled, Preserving Los Angeles: How Historic Places Can Transform America’s Cities.
The City of Los Angeles has one of the most successful historic preservation programs in
the US, highlights of which include the 1999 Adaptive Reuse Ordinance and Survey LA, the
citywide survey of historic resources that wrapped up in 2017.
In this two-part presentation, Ken will discuss the elements of a comprehensive historic
preservation program and the intersection between historic preservation and current issues
such as climate change and affordable housing. A discussion will follow with Ken and a terrific panel of the following Orange County-based professionals:
