The Los Angeles Times (and here) reports "Among L.A.'s architecturally diverse communities seeking historic designation are Stonehurst in Sun Valley, a unique enclave of more than 60 native stone structures reflecting the ideals of the early 20th century Arts and Crafts movement; Garvanza in Highland Park, with Craftsman and Victorian homes dating from the 1880s; and Balboa Highlands in Granada Hills, filled with sleek wood-and-glass tract homes built by the progressive developer Joseph Eichler, forming one of the best groupings of Midcentury Modern homes in the city.

"Other neighborhoods with pending applications include Los Feliz, Larchmont Heights, Victoria Park, Wellington Square, Jefferson Park, Country Club Park, Angelino Heights Expansion, Lincoln Heights Expansion, Sunset Square, Echo Park, El Sereno-Berkshire Craftsman and Revival Bungalow Village, Wilshire Park and Windsor Village.

"Twenty-eight years after their inception, Historic Preservation Overlay Zones, or HPOZs, are popping up all around Los Angeles as residents seek to preserve their neighborhoods, prevent the spread of mansionization and protect their home values."

They did leave Leimert Park out of the list. Harold get on that and get back to us with a report.
