Over 100 members and friends celebrated the Conservancy’s 10 years dedicated to historic preservation with a party at the future home of the Preservation Resource Center in Ocean Park.

The Conservancy received commendations recognizing its 10th Anniversary from the Los Angeles Board of Supervisors and from the State Office of Historic Preservation, as well as a mention in the closing remarks at the annual California Preservation Awards by Cindy Heitzman, Executive Director of the California Preservation Foundation.
From the Los Angeles Board of Supervisors “in proud recognition of your 10th anniversary as an all-volunteer organization devoted to enhanced understanding of the numerous benefits of historic preservation and to promoting incentives, policies and programs to encourage landmarking and adaptive reuse and cultivating a deeper appreciation of the rich architectural legacy of the Santa Monica community.”
