Altadena African-American Historic Resources Survey

The Department of Regional Planning (DRP) has initiated a project to survey historic resources associated with Altadena’s African-American community. The project was chosen because it supports the County’s effort to create a more equitable society by identifying valuable contributions by the County’s diverse communities and because it will complete one development theme of a broader Altadena survey that DRP hopes to work on in the future.

This survey will:

  • Bring awareness to Altadena’s African-American history;
  • Identify African-American historic resources so that they can be potentially preserved through the County’s Historic Preservation Ordinance;
  • Inform policy for a Historic Preservation General Plan Element and/or community based plans; and
  • Contribute information for a future Countywide African-American historical context statement and perhaps survey.

The survey is expected to be completed in mid-August 2020 with presentations of the completed project occurring in Fall 2020.


On Saturday, August 1, 2020 at 2:00 PM, the County hosted an online meeting to inform the public about the purpose of the survey, solicit comments and information and allow for public participation. The presentation is here and the meeting recording is here.
