City Planning recently hosted two workshops to present an overview of the findings and recommendations outlined in the Mills Act Historical Property Contract Program assessment report prepared by an outside consultant. The City commissioned the comprehensive assessment to consider the future of the Mills Act program and analyze its sustainability, fiscal impact, management needs, and equity outcomes. The program assessment will inform policy recommendations from City Planning to the City Council on options to improve the administration of the program, expand participation in communities with historic disinvestment, and increase capacity for new Mills Act applications. The full report is available online.

Feedback can be provided via the online form, or e-mailed to

There will also be additional meetings and opportunities to participate as City Planning moves forward with policy recommendations.



The Mills Act Historical Property Contract Program has served as Los Angeles's primary financial incentive for historic preservation since 1996, offering property tax savings for owners who invest in the rehabilitation and restoration of historic buildings.
