Current Agenda:East Los Angeles Commissions

Often called Los Angeles' first suburb, the hilltop residential area of Angelino Heights lies two miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, near the communities of Echo Park and Silver Lake. The area was planned as a respectable, genteel Victorian neighborhood for Los Angeles' late 19th century upper-middle class. The first designated HPOZ in the city, Angelino Heights contains some of the best remaining examples of Victorian-era architectural styles in Los Angeles, as well as later examples of Craftsman and Mission Revival styles. Located within the HPOZ, the 1300 block of Carroll Avenue is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and contains the highest concentration of 19th century Victorian homes in Los Angeles. The Angeleno Heights HPOZ was adopted by City Council in 1983.
