Historic Huntington Beach

For the last thirty years, the City has had an interest in preserving, promoting and improving the historic resources within Huntington Beach. In 1986, the City conducted a survey documenting the historic core of the City of Huntington Beach. In 1987, the Historic Resources Board (HRB) was established to function as an advisory body to the City Council on matters pertaining to historic issues and services. In addition, they encourage and promote programs and activities that enhance public awareness of community historic resources, as well as provide input to other City agencies such as the Community Services Commission and the Planning Commission to ensure that historic preservation and services are considered in the planning for the future development of the community. In 1996, the City’s General Plan was updated to include goals, policies, and programs for historic resources in the City of Huntington Beach. An updated General Plan Element and Historic Survey were amended in 2008 and adopted by the City Council in 2015.
