In 2011 the Burbank City Council updated the City’s historic preservation ordinance (Attachment A). The ordinance outlines the processes and procedures to designate a property as a Historic Resource. A Historic Resource is defined in the Burbank Municipal Code as, “any Resource that has special character or aesthetic value in the historic, cultural, architectural, archaeological, or social heritage of the City of Burbank."

Significance of Designation

Designation of a property as a Historic Resource demonstrates a commitment made by the property owner to preserving those improvements and features which reflect elements of the City’s architectural and environmental heritage.
