Palm Springs Preservation Foundation

Neighborhood (Residential) Historic Districts

Preservation organizations expend a great deal of time and effort protecting individual buildings at risk. While such efforts are necessary, “reactive preservation” means we are constantly playing defense. In an effort to be pro-active the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation is aggressively pursuing the creation of neighborhood historic districts in Palm Springs.

Successful efforts to create historic districts in other cities have typically required the support and leadership of local elected officials. In recognition of this reality, on December 2, 2008 the PSPF sent a letter to each of the Palm Springs city council members expressing our strong support for neighborhood historic districts. More importantly, the PSPF provided specific and positive recommendations to accomplish that aim.
