News + Advocacy

The Santa Monica Conservancy is a seasoned voice for preservation, adaptive reuse, and preservation policies. The Conservancy is dedicated to:
  • increasing the public’s awareness and understanding of Santa Monica’s architectural heritage and historic places, and the benefits and incentives associated with their preservation;
  • supporting sustainability solutions for historic buildings; and
  • identifying and advocating for solutions to conserve the values and craftsmanship of earlier times that are embodied in these resources.

The Conservancy provides regular updates on ongoing preservation news and a quarterly newsletter.

Preservation alerts provide the latest information on what’s happening around the City and calls to action on crucial issues.

Preserving Santa Monica’s historic structures is hard work.  The Conservancy’s Annual Preservation Awards honor those who have tirelessly dedicated themselves to the work of preservation.
