2f831bba-0bb4-45ae-a534-983eedab524dOur thanks to Michele Zach of Altadena Heritage for passing along this information regarding the “Third Thursday” panel on March 17th titled “Historic Preservation 101.”

Altadena Heritage’s March “Third Thursday” presentation features a panel of experts who will inform us about the recently adopted Los Angeles County Historic Preservation Ordinance and the Mills Act, which grants property tax reductions to certain qualified historic properties. (One example is Altadena’s Woodbury house, pictured above, built in 1883.)

Join us on March 17 at the Altadena Community Center to hear insights from:

Tim Gregory, an architectural historian (“The Building Biographer”) and a founding Altadena Heritage board member who was involved in initiating the community-wide historic architectural survey that became the foundation for AH’s architectural database, and;

Phillip Estes, a principal planner with the L.A. County Department of Regional Planning who leads community planning efforts in unincorporated areas, including the successful implementation of the County’s first-ever Historic Preservation Ordinance and Mills Act; and

Kevin Johnson, a senior planner with the City of Pasadena’s Design and Historic Preservation staff who serves as manager of the city’s Mills Act Program.

There will be a Q&A session after the presentation.

This program is free and open to the public as part of Altadena Heritage’s “Third Thursday” Series, and includes light refreshments.
