The Avenues Honored Yet Again


The Los Angeles Department of City Planning and the Los Angeles Conservancy are very pleased to invite you to attend the 2011 Citywide HPOZ Conference taking place in the West Adams Terrace HPOZ.
The HPOZ Conference is open to all HPOZ neighborhood residents and members of the general public who have an interest in the city's historic districts.  It's your best opportunity to network and share ideas with other HPOZ Boardmembers, and to meet like-minded historic preservation leaders from neighborhoods across the city. 

There is a $20 registration fee which covers all conference activities, including a continental breakfast and lunch. You’ll have your choice of afternoon HPOZ walking tours, which will include opportunities to see either the West Adams Terrace HPOZ, with its Craftsman, Period Revival, and Classical Revival architecture, or the proposed new HPOZ in Jefferson Park.  Registration instructions are found on the flyer, or click on

After registering for this event, time and details are below.

Neighborhood Shooting

Unfortunately, on Monday, March 14th at approximately 2:50PM several shots were fired in what appears to be a gang retaliation. No one was harmed and according to police, it was not an incident typical of our neighborhood.

Several witnesses provided information, but key witnesses refused to speak with police. What is known is that the vehicle involved was a white late model compact Mazda with black stripes. Police are asking if anyone sees this vehicle to try and obtain a license plate number and then call our Senior Lead Officer, Tracy Hauter at (323) 387-9617.

While the Avenues enjoys very low crime rate, it is always important to remember to keep our eyes open.
