In November 2004, two Los Angeles City Council committees gave a push to a long-stalled project: a citywide historic resources survey. To discuss this potentially landmark survey, The Planning Report brought together a panel of experts in L.A. preservation: Con Howe, the outgoing Director of Planning for the city; Ken Bernstein, Director of Preservation Issues at the Los Angeles Conservancy; Rick Starzak, Senior Architectural Historian at Jones & Stokes (formerly Myra L. Frank & Associates, Inc.); and Kate Bartolo, Senior Vice President for Development at The Kor Group.
