Terrain: Gently sloping to hillside
and rugged. No serious construction hazards. Land improved 501, in north to 70%
in south, average 60%. Deed restrictions are adequate , providing for minimum
i~rovem.ent costs, limiting construction to single family structures and protecting against racial hazards; also zoned, single family residenticl. Conven iences
are all as available as could be expected in an exclusive and sequestered neighborhood. . This area which lies along tho northern border of Bi;,.rbank nnd Glendale 1-ma
subdividod some 20 ye(ll"s a.go, and has enjoyed a leisurely but steady growth without
undue prorootionaJ. effort., Construction and maintenance a re of excellent quality.
Architectural designs are pleas i ng and population is horrogeneous. In the section
east of Columbus Ave. inprovellli.lnta will not average over 3 years, and JOOst of the
new construction has been in this part. Many dwellings occupy extensive homesites;
the 11 price range 11 sho\m, however, cover s only nominal land value. The location is
a popular one not alone for its cltitude and vi0\7 but also on uccount of the
horoogencity of its middle to higher incomr:i level home own ers. The upward trend of
desirability of this area will continue for a number of years and it is therefore
accorded a 11 low green 11 grade.

DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA

Co. $44.42 - City $11.83

1938

Terrain: Rugged hillside and hill top. ·Many construction hazards. Probably 40%
of acreage suitable for residential development is covered by present improvement ~
al though only about 10'.;t of the lnnd in the area is developed. Deed restrictions
provide for minimum improvement cost of $7500, arc.'litectural SUJ,2rvision and raciol

restrictions in perpetuity. Zoning is single family residentin:-~ . Conveniences
are not readily available. This exclusive and sequestered dist:d.ct \Vas subdivided
in 1925 and. has been slo\vly developed since that tioo. .A re-subdivision of some
of the larger acreage plots was racently mo.de ,vith the mutual consent of all
property owners of the area. This will undoubtedly stimulate further development
as the district is very highly regarded. Construction, architectural designs and
maintenance arc of the very highest character. It is not practical to designate
a predominating type and size or to give price brackets as extent of homesites
largely govern prices. In a general way it might be stated that estates have cost
O\mers from $2;5,000 to $109,.000. Tho a.roa has been very corefully developed ond
population • is horrogenaous, and ·hD.s a high community prid.e . Remoteness and
comparatively small numb0r of improvements preclude assignment of the highest
grade, but it is thought that po.ttern and prospects ore dofinito enough to warrant
assignment of o. nmedial green" grad!-3.

Terrain: Rolling to hillside and hill top. Very rugged with many construction
hazards. Land improved-: 20% i.mhatched pa.rt; S,, hatched portion. Homesites
usually run into acreage. Highly deed restricted, both as to improvements and
population. Conveniences are all rea.sonably available for a district of this
character. This area ho.a been developing intermittently for 25 or 30 yea.rs, and
is still very sparsely settled. Its appeal is to very wealthy people who desire
a sequestered homesi te. Construction is of superior quality; roo.intcnanco is of
the best, and architectural designs a.re exccllont. Population is hoxoogenoous.
Property turn-over is extremely limited and marketability is influenced by
consideration of sacrifice sales. Recent improvEroents have been largely olong
Madeline Dr., Covington Place and the section lolo,m as Busch Gardens, and a.re
somewhat xoorc modest in size und occupy smnllcr cstatos. The area is a very

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREk

Torrain: Rolling to hill side and hill top. Mony construction ho.zards in hatched
portion. Lond improved 25%. Many homesitos of acrongo oxtont. Deed restrictions
are in offoct but vnry according to subdiVision; oll, however , are bolieved to be
n.mplo ond to protect agninst subversive raciru. hazards and provide for architocturol supervision. Convcniances are llll roaaonably available for an area of this
kind. Dovolopment of this orco. has taken pla.co at various intorvals during the
past 25 yoa.rs. Under stinm.J.us of ea.sy financing during po.st fe'l7 years there has
been considero.ble building activity, particulo.rly in the section directly south
of Colora.do Blvd. Construction is of stondord quality or batter. Maintononco is
of good qUll.1.i ty indico.ting pride of ownership. .A.rchi tecturol designs are pleasing
ond popul a tion is hoDX>gcneous nnd of fairly subotontial moons. Deed restrictions
pormi t of mu.l ti-family structures in designa ted loc.1tions ond thoro are several
bungalow courts of good quoli ty a.t Ave. 64 and Colorado Blvd. Adjacence to
Anand.ale Country Club is a favorable factor. Except in section directly south of
Country Club there are no uniform paving regulations. This is o. pa.rti cularly
hard nroo. to grade, particularly the hatched portion. However, Ave, 64 is tho
now high speed o.rtory from Pasadena to downtown Los Angolos ond this factor i:l
i tsclf has led to a sti.urulation of tho neighborhood. Con sequen tly, grading will

S. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACIBRlSTICS OF AREA,

Terrain: Rolling to semi- hillside. No serious construction ho.zards.. Land improved 50fo (70'/,, south of Sunset). Deed restrictions provide for single-family
structures with varying minimum improvement costs in different parts·. Also
affords racial protection. Conveniences are adequate for district of this type·• .
This area represents the oldest development in West Los Angeles. It was subdivided from 15 to 20 years ago and has experienced a steady growt};t. Many
improvements are comparatively old but the excellent character of mo.intenance
h as kept them modornized • This is one of the best landscaped sections of the
city. Construction is of the highest quality and arch itectural designs leave
little to be desired. Population is homo geneous and t r,kes evident pride in their
district. The recent influx of motion picture employees hns had the effect of
raising land vnlues which arc now nvoro.ging better tho.n $50 per front foqt. Price
brackets given nbovo are nominal and will vary o.ccording to .size of' homosite.·
Adjaccnco to the swanky Riviera Country Club is n fnvornble factor. Vfuile vo.rying somewhat in different po.rts tho o.rco. o.s o. whole is o.ocerded o. 11 medinl green 11

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA: Terrain : Rolling to hillside - valley
to rugged hilltops causing many construction hazards and high building costs. Lend
improved hO% •. Highest type deed restrict i ons, which are rigidly enforced, protect
in perpetuity against racial hazards and provides mininrum improvement costs and
requires architectural sup e rvision. Zoning limits improverrents to single-family
residences and provides for uniform placement of improvements. Due to t ype of
occupo.ncy, trm sportation is entirely by privo.tely owned automobiles or taxi service.Proximity to Westwood and Beverly Hills provides conveniently o.vnilable schools,•
churches, trading and amusement centers. This aren consists of three subdivisions:
Bel-Air, Holmby Hills & Boverly Estates, r.11 of which have been developed within tho
past 15 years in an orderly nnnne r and under efficient sponsorship. This area represents, without question, the highest type of r esidential construction· and nnintennncc
in Los Angelos County. Homc sitos rnngo in size to from 2 to 15 o.cros., which sell for
from $ 7500-12,500 per acre. Cost of throe r ocont improveIIDnts, including sites in
Holmby Hills, were reported to bo $80,000, $100,000 and $110,000 .. It is noticenble
that now construction is along con~vrva tivo lines but ropresonts the highest typo of
urchitocturnl skill. Extcnsivo improvom0nts of loss pretentious cho.rncter, in a pric v
ro.ngo of $25,000-35, 000, have to.ken place in Stone Cnnyon and tributary valleys in t ho

Thero is evidence tho.t development has boon too rnpid and thnt nevi improvoronts
are not being absorbed r eadily. It i s po::isiblc that spcculo.tivo builders mo.y
have to reduce prices to compo te with other now improvements in th is section.
Construction, most of which has boon fiMnco d through FHA Title II loans, io of

Buses rrnke schools readily available . Churches and trc.ding centers arc generally
remote. This le..rge area. which is more like a '1 countryside" than a residential
district, started to develop in tho early 20 1 s. A mnjority of streets or thoroughfares a.re paved roe.ds without sidewnlks, and there is no sanitary sewerage system.
Construction is of standard quality or better and maintenance indicates high pride
of ownership . Populo.tion although cf wide income range is hom:>goncous. Architecturo.l designs a.re generally individually o.ttractivo. FHA Title II fi:nnncing
has been very stimulating and there is no evidence of high pressure promotional

quality and mo.intenanc0 is of a high order. Population is h oioogeneous and architectural designs ure harmonious. There are a number of residences offered for

Terrain: Leve l to steep hillside and hilltop. Some construction hazards . Land
improved 907; unhatched; 10 hatched average 5()%. Many improve..-nents occupy large
horresites. De e d restrictions cover largo part of area and ar e said to be enforced.
Zoning is largely single-family residential. Conveniences are o.11 r eadily avail able. This is one of the oldest sections of South Pasadena, early development
being in the nature of small esto.tes. Tho area is far - flung following to sorre
extent a hilly section knovm as Monterey Hills .. It is a popular district with
those having busiress in Los Angeles, and its population to a gr eat extent is
made up of Los Angeles business and professional people . Construction ranges
from stando.rd to suporsto.ndard quality. Maintenance is of good charo.cter and in
many co.ses mitigates age and obsolescence. Architectural designs of iII"f)rovem.cnts
are of great varie ty ond this, together with a l argo vo.r ia.nc e in age, gives the
o.ren asomewhat heterogeneous o.spoot . Population is fairly homogeneous, although
there is a wide differential in incomes. The o.roo. contnins nnny largo old live
oak treas vdl.ich add to its charm o.nd desirability.. Convenionccs to Los Angeles
is omi of tho location's chief o.ttractions. \'lhi l o development hns never boon vory
active its growth ho.s boon quite steady and there a r e i ndications that its trend
of dosirnbility is still upward. However , until this is more n.ppr:rcnt than at

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,
Terrain: Level to rolling. Hillside nbove Hillcrest Blvd. No construction
hazards. Land improved 60f,,. Deed restrictions covering part of area provide
for single-family structures and protect against racial hazards. Zoning mixed
but largely single-family residential. Conveniences are all reasonably available.
This is the best residential urea in M.onrovio. and has slowly developed over the
po.st 35 yeo.rs or more. It is currently experiencing its greatest activity.
Improvements are extremely heterogeneous both as to a go and type. New construction is of good quo.lity and of attractive architectural designs, Maintenance
genoro.lly indicates pride of occupancy, Population is largely homogeneous. The
many old outmoded dwellings scattered throughout the aroa gi vos it a spotted
uspcot. Thero are o.lso u number of small acreage citrus groves. It is thought
tho.t the o.rca will remain dosiruble for a number of years to como and it is
accorded a "medial blue" grade.·

restrictions are ample and include protection from racial hazards . Conveniences
are not readily availabl e , transportati on facil i ties being very poor. This area
was subdivided sooo 3 years ago and al though stimulated by promotional effort,
speculative buildin~ and FHA financing has exporiencod onl y moderate activity.
Adjoining to the onst is an addit ional 56 acres awaiting subdivision which ,·rill,
in time, become part of this area. Improvem3nts, many of which wero owner-built,
are of good construction nn:i attractive arch itocturo.l designs. Indications o.ro
tlw.t the are n is not o. popular location and the necessity for the subdivision is

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,
Terrain : Level to rolling and hilly. Many construction hazards. Land improved
5% as a whole, 30'./4 in unhatched portion. Deed restrictions are nebulous and inconclusive. Conveniences are not readily available. This area was subdivided
and placed upon the mnrkot soJID 15 years ag o and development has not been in
koeping with the naturo.l a dvuntu.g,'El s of the location. Construction and mo.intenance
nre heterogeneous with but littlo uttent ion to architectural design. Mruty of
improvements are of the sunnne r s ea side vuricty and popul at ion is to soioo extent
of seasonal cho.rnctcr o.nd could hardly be classified o.s homogeneous. Unfavoro.ble
influences include distance from convenie nces and lack of public transportation,
ino.doquo.to street improvements and sower system, and incompetent dovolopmont
GUido.noo. Tho very low percent of development gives rise to tho thought that
many of those deterring factors mo.y yet be ovorcomo and it is upon this basis
tha.t this o.roo. is C\.ccordod a provisional "hatched blu0 11 grade .

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERb'TICS OF AREA,
Terrain : Hii;h level with favora ble grades. No construction hazards. Land
improved 45%. Deed reiltrictions exi st but are nebulous owing to change in pro-vis i ons. Zoning is single- family residential. Convenienc es are not readily
available - a srre.11 neighbor hood trading center is nearby but transportation,
which is important to a district of this type , is lacking. TMs isolated area
wus subdivided some 15 years ago and was fornorly r estricted fo r religious purposes and sold on 99 year lease basis. This , together with other provisions, has
now been changed and the o.roa hns shovm incre a sed a c tivity in tho past few years,
largely under stimulus of l+'llA finnneing. Construction is generally of standard
quality o.nd maintenance indic ates pride of 0\'1!10rsh ip. Improv ements, owing to ago
difforontio.ls, give the nroo. a som::::who.t hetorogonoous uspoct, and population is
inclined to be hete r ogeneous on o.ocount of scasono.l churcctor of occupancy.
Uniform 11 sot bo.cks 11 and mo.rino o.nd mountnin viows nro fo.vor-!l.1ile fo.otors. Luck of
sowers and paving is be i ng r om::::died but c.t o. cost of about $250 per lot. This
being o. mod.ero.to incoxoo neighbor hood it is not thought tha.t '.lnY grant progress
will be nndo until better o.nd mo r e direct highvro.y facilities and transportation

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,
Te rra.in: Hillside to Canyon bottom - some construction hazards. Land improved
15% out of possible 75%. Deed restricted to single-family structures architecturally supervised. Ample provisions for racial protection. Conveniences are
not readily available, 'Ymi ch is not a great handicap as this is a two or more
car garage neighborhood. This area was formerly developed as a Botanical Garden.
This project was abo.ndoned some years ago and subdivision followed. Growth has
been so.tisfo.ctory and, currently, building is quite r apid . Construction o.nd maintenance are of excellent character o.nd architectural designs are harmonious and
a.dd to charm of aren. Population , v.hioh is lo.rgoly in the higher income brackets,
is horoogeneous . Lond is usually sold on homesite basis but runs from $25 to $30
per front foot. Detrimental factors include; luck of conveniences including
transportation, flood hazard owing to ino.dcquo.te clro.ino.ge facilities, danger of
co.nyon or brush fires, and inndequo.tc paving. It is thcughttho.t high roquiroments
in deed restrictions may prove o. deterring factor. With the pattern not dofinitoly
osto.blished this is o. difficult area to grndo. It is , however, assigned a provisiono.l "hatched blu0 11 grade.

Terrain: Rolling to steep hillside with many building hazards. Land improved
25%. Owing to topography l,10% will be maximum improvement. Area on the whole
is well restricted. Conveniences all available but not readily so. This area
was subdivided in 1920 and ho.s been slowly developing since that time but has
shovm diminishing activity ,·lithin the last 3 years. '£ho rugged terrain has had
mu.ch to do with the development of tho areo. and will handicap further activity.
Improvements in tho northern po.rt arc less attractive than those in the southern
seetion and a few 11 cll..bins" will be found o.long Kirkwood Drive . On tho whole,
cons t ruction and maintono.ncc is of good quality. Popu lation h omogonccus, the area
having a distinct ::i.ppcal for people in search of viow lots. Tho average lot
value in the area is probably o.round $1500. It is possible in time that this
o.rco. should be broken dovm and gradod sopo.ro.tcly. At present, however, it is
treated as a whole and given a "roodinl blueu grade.

Construction hazards cause high building costs. Land improved 25% of a possi. ble
45% in unhatched portion; not over 10% for a.rea a.s a whole. Deed restricted both
as to cost of improve rrents and racial popul::ttion. Minimum building requirements
are $10 ,000 in some parts . Zoning follows dood r estrictions. This is a multiautomobile nrea and is only 5 minutes drive to Hollywood wOOre all conveniences
are all readily available. This o.rea was subdivided about 15 years ago o.nd shows
its greate st period of development during following 5 years. Since its initial
o.ctivity grCYYfth has lo.rgely depended upon tho specialized dom.o.nd of those seeking
this partioulnr tYt>c of neighborhood. Tho o. r oa is chnro.cterizcd by its winding
po.vod stroots with stoop grades nnd confusing locations . Construction and ma.intcnnnco, while of oxccllont quality, is exceedingly cxponsivo owing to excess ive
costs below t ho sill lines . Architectural designs nro goncro.lly p l easing o.nd

Thero is a high porccnto.gc of horo ownership ; houovor , owing to the very limited

Terr ain: Level , no construction hazards. Land impr oved 85%. Fully deed
restricted. Conveniences all readily available. This a:fea was subdivided
some 15 to 20 years ago and developed ver y rapidly. Improvements were lt1.rgely
owner - built and construction , mv.intcnanc e and architectural designs are of
exc ellent quality . Population is homogeneous and area is harmonious in
ap;_;oaranoe . l.iost homes in area are sti ll in the hMds of original owners .
Proximity to Fremont Park Pla ce and lffilsh irc Blvd. are favorable influences.
The High School on the southeast border is somewhat detrimental to adjo.cent
property . The substantial nntur e of impr ovement and p opulation, coupled with
high prid e of ownership exhibi tod indicate s a n e xtended period of dcsirab :D ity.

The o.reo. is , therefore , o.ccordcd a 11 high blue grade.

Subsequent doveloproont was very rapid under stimulus of well conceived promotion .

which give urea u harmonious appoo.ro.nco and is o. lso r esponsible for homogeneity
of populo.tion. Proximity to Wilshire Blvd. trading a rcu is a favorabl e influence.
Owing to la.ck of activity o.nd difficulty of esto.blishing definite land vo.lws in

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,
Terrain: Level with favorable grades. No construction hazards. Land irrproved
75%. Deed restrictions ani zoning provide for 1 arrl 4 family dwellings in
designated blocks. Conveniences all readily available. Development of area
was begun in the early 20' s but owing to poor sponsorship and poorly conceived
restrictions which have apparently been enforced in a haphazard Mnner, the area
has never been as popula r as its location and advantages would seem to warrant.
Cons t ruct ion, maintenance and urchitectural designs, v.tiile good, are not of the
h ighest quality. Population is generally homogeneous . Location of multi-family
dwellings, largely duplexes, are not confined to definite streets but o.rc scattered
throughout, dotracting from tho harmonious nppcarance of po.rts of the areu and
leaving tho improssion of a lack of uniformity. Although soxoowhat lo.eking in
o.ppcaLemd active dcnnnd, the area is thought to be a stable one arrl is a ccordod
a 11 low· bluo 11 grade.

Terrain : Low lying level. Adobe soil and svrompy spots create slight construc tion hazards. Land improved .40"/4 . Oeed restrictions covering cost and time of
improvements and protecting against racial hazards , arc apparently enforced .
Conveniences are all r(:!adily avo.iluble, including interurban bus service. There
is no local transportntion . School s o.rc especia lly good . Many streets o.re not
improved, This is n workingmen's district evidently developed to meet demand of
white collar clericals nnd minor executives connected with the Montebello oil
fields located ubout a mile to the north. This has been fnirly active a rea for
po.st 3 yeo.rs , SOITO 150 new homes having beon built. Construction is of stnndo.rd
quality, but o.rchi tocturo.l do signs lo.ck something in appeal , The o.rea is too new
to properly judge cho.ro.ctor of population o.nd rno.intenonco . Proximity to oil
fields is o. fo.voro.blo rather than dotrioontnl influence. A dniry looo.ted to tho
co.st of uroo. is unfo.voro.blo fo.ctor. Tho uron is still in dovolopmont stage o.nd ,
while indications nro thc.t it will bo n good workingman's district , it is thought

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACfERISTICS OF AREk
Terrain : Level; no construction hazards; good soil. Land improved 75%. Deed
restrictions provide for unifo:nnity of improvements and set baeks. Protect
against subversive racial elements. Conveniences, including rapid interurban
transporto.tion to Los Angeles, arc all readily available. This area was subdivided
some 10 ye P..r s a.gs and was quite active for a brief period. It was largely dormant
during tho depression years but, under influence of FHA financing, became fairly
o.ctivo ago.in some 3 yours ago, but building ho.s apparently again slackened during
tho past year. Construction, nnintono.nce and o.rchitoctural designs are above
average in quality. Populo.tion ond improvom.onts givo the impression of harmony
and thorc is cJvidcnt pride of ownership, and the surrounding citrus orchards also
lend a certain chnrT.1. Regardless of nll these favorable factors tho a reo. seems
to lo.ck popular nppcul , probably for tho reason tho.t it is strung along n single
street which is a heavily traveled nrtery. Competition with the well promoted
now area to the vmst of Downey mny ril. so be nn adverse influonco. Tho nreo. gives
tho inprcssion of being o. misplc.cod dovolop1l¥lnt, and in tho absence of intelligent
promotionnl effort, it is thought thnt it will dccroaso considerably in desirability within tho next ton yea.rs. It is thcreforo c.ccordcd o. "low blue 11 grndo .

Conveniences are all readily available. This area wns subdivided some yee.rs ago,

medium to good sto.ndn.rd quality; while character of rno.intono.ncc has not yet been
osto.blishod, indications arc tho.t it will show pride of ow·ncrship. Architectural
designs arc gonoro.lly attractive, but seem to lack hnnnony. This, however, mny
be on account of tho large O..'Uount of now construction undor WJ.y. Although 55%

Terrain : Level, no construction hazo.rds. Land improved 75'%,. Highly deed
restricted both as to improvements and racial qualifications. Zoned single - family
residential. Conveniences are only reasone.bly available. Transportation is
limited to bus service and private conveyance. Trunk sewers are not all in.
Ttiis area, wh ich occupies a bench overlooking the Virginia Country Club, is upward
of 20 yef;rs old. It wo.s dormant for e. nwnbor of years but, under stimulus of FHA
Title II financing and rapid development of adjacent areas to the east, it has
become\ mildly o.ctive during the past few ye ars. Construction of both old and new
improveroonts is of stn.ndo.rd quality or better. Maintenance , while a little
spotted, is generally good. Fopulo.tion is homogeneous and mnny improvements a.re
of mo.nsion typo with well kopt grounds. hrchitecturo.l designs, howovor, differ
greo.tly rmd arc not harmonious. Some of tho old homes le.ck po.int ru1d look
slightly 11 fre.yodn. Proximity to oil vmlls is detrimental factor, on account of
odors when wind is from thJ ir diroction. othorwise tho o.roa has an excellent
loc n.tion. Adjnccnce to Virginia Country Club is o. fo.vornblo influence. The
compr1.ro.tively largo amount of vo.co.nt lnnd in tho aron. o.nd quality of new improvements indico.tes the possibility of o.n upvro.rd trend; however, ln.ck of proper

sewers are lacking. This is a post- depression subdivision, occupying a low hill
overlooking a city park and golf' links. It was quite popular and was developing
rapidly until drilling for oil commenced just east of this aren. This stopped
activity and caused a slump in values. It is said that very recently the well
"came in dry1', If furthor drilling is o.bandoned it will favorably nffcct the
district. Construction is of high standard quality and maintenance is of good
cho.ro.cter. Population is homogeneous, and architecturnl designs are ho.rmonious.
Pending definite determination of oil well dovclopmont the area. is accorded a
provisional 11 rncdio.l blue 11 grade with indications that this gro.de muy bo increased
with future ft1vornble development.

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA: Terrain: Level elGvation only few
feet above sea level. In case of a tidal wave property in this area would be
seriously jeopardized. No construction hazards. Land improved 70"/o. Deed restric tions vary but all arei said to be effective and afford protection against racial
hazards. Conveniences are all readily available. This area is composed of subdivisions known as 11 j3elmont Shores " and 11 Naples 11 , both being in the nature of high
grade beach resort deve lopments. However , there are an increasing nwnber of
permo.nent rusidcncos being built, o.nd the areo. has been very o.ctive during t he po.st
3 or!~ y onrs. Cons t ruction is of high standard quality o.nd maintenance is of good
character. Architocturo.l designs o.ro genernlly attractive but undersized lots and
irregular platting giv es perts of area. a crowded aspect. Owing to lo.ck of uniformity in size, lot vo.lues o.ro ho.rd to estimate; bused upon a 120 ft. depth thoy
will probably rungo from $25 to ~50, probably more for frontages on the Riva Alto
Co.no.l, which o.rc 30 ft. with little depth. In spite of shifting no.turc popula tion
give s tho impression of homogeneity. Occupnncy is irregulo.r an:l ch:l.ngcs with t he
seasons; for the so.xoo rec.son ronto.ls a.re not constant o.nd brnclrots shown o.bovo nrc
only nomino.l o.nd a.re upon o. yearly loo.so basis. Across the Marino Sto.diUJTI., which

ly not considorod n dotriloontnl factor. This urea will grade from 11 low11 to high
bluo 11 in different po.rts with spots showing a "yellow11 tin.go. However, on the
whole, there is ovidcntly o.n upward trend of desirability o.nd it is believed to

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,
Terrain: Level. No c.onstruction hazard or flood threat. Land improved 30%.
Zoning: Single family residential. Conveniences are all readily available.
This area which is some 50 years old includes the older section of San Fernando
which is a separately incorporated community. The town is the center of an
extensive agricultural district, which is its chief economic support. The
County Tubercular Sanatorium nnd the Veterans Hospital, which a.re located in
close proximity, o.lso contribute to the support of the colTIDl.unity, nnd it is the
trading point for tho farmers nnd miners of tho Antelope Valley.
The o.rco. has had n ste o.dy growth but ouing to its ago is chnro.cterized by
obsolescence. Thero ho.s boon quite 11 little new construction in tho aron in
the pc.st fow years, much of it hnving boon fin.n.ncod through FHA Title I Class 3
loans. Largo grrunds with rnnny citrus trcos minimize tho hctorogonoous a.spcct
of the a.rea, which is o.ccorded a. 11 low yo llow 11 gra.dc. _

1938 did re a l do.1nago to tho newest nnd best pnr t; of the district, lying betwoon
Victory Wash and tho Los Angeles River. Po.rt of this district is still more or
less isolated on nccount of wt.shod out bridges which ho.ve not yet boon replac e d.
The best part of nror~ includes Brooks View Drivo and Bluff'sido Drivo nnd intermedintc thoroughfares. Construction in this section is novr nnd of oxcollont

flood control projects are said to havo overcorre flood hazards. Land improved
in area as a whole lCf,/4; in unhatched portion it is 45%. This nret.\ is particularly popular with thoso suffering from pulmonary and respiratory afflictions,
and o. hospito.l for tho treatment of such troublos is loco.tad in tho area .
Improvcm::mts c.re heterogeneous a.s to typo, size , o.ge nnd maintona.ncc. Population
is inclined to bo inharmonious. Since the arcn wns clcc.rod of M. vo.lorom bondod
dobt soil):) two yof'.rs o.go , there ho.s boon quite o. little activity in the a.roe.
largely under stimulus of FHA fino.ncing and now improvements arc of very much
better class. In the hatched portion of area o.ro o. number of pretentious homes
of tho country estuto typo vtlich occupy spo.oious grounds. In tim:.: this area will
undoubtedly have to bo broken down into n number of sm:tllor o.rco.s and r cr;raded.
In tho meantime it is assigned a nm:Jdio.1 11 yellow grado.

portion. The quality of construction of these Q.wellings ranges from
first class substandard to "Jerry built" and s hoddy. High pressure
p romotional effort is the rule and terms vary from nothing to ~100
dovm with balance payable in 94 monthly installroonts. Prices range
roughly from 02000 to t 26oo.
Practic ally 10/$ of the act i vity in the area is of a speculative natur e
and this factor in itself seriously clouds the future of the district .
Und er the circumstances outlined it naturally fo llows that the populat ion
is extrerooly heterogeneous. A I1Rjority of the residents are young people
,·,ho have not yet o.ttained economic stability and , should the airplane
p lants mentioned curtail ope r ations, it would inevitably result in
numerous abA.ndonments and foreclosures.
It shoul d bo stated , however ,
that the plants mentioned have a treoondous back log of orders and
indications p oint to still further expansion of operations .
Authorities differ widely as to tho classification of this area, but ,

DESCRIPTION AND CHARACfERISTICS OF AREA,

~~

Terrain: Low level with no cons t ruction hazards. Land improved 50%. Deed
restrictions are inadequate and short lived. Zoning in Burbank due to lax
building code is questionable. Conveniences are a.11 r oadily available. There
o.re a number of unimproved streets. This area was subdivided some 15 or 20
years o.go and has never boon a popular location and is probably seeing its
greatest activity at tho present time. Tho construction of older dwollings
is of substandard to 11 shack 11 construction. Now improvmncnts on the contrary
are of' good qUD.lity o.nd pleasing architectural designs~ most of the hom'.ls being
built with FHA Title II financi ng. This contradictory condition is responsible
for the wide spread shown above.. There is also a wi,do variance in both price
range and mnintonanco. As a no.turo.l soquencc of tho foregoing , population is
hctorogcnoous. Proximity to the S.P. Ry., Gro.nd Central Airport.,. and industry
to tho north o.ni wost nnd business to tho soui;h arc unfo.vorablo faotors. Near ness to omploym::mt is a favor £;.b l o inf'luonco and currant building a ctivity ilrli catos n.n upwnrd trend . Tho i ndustrial pro gross in Burbank and consequent dc!Tflnd
for housing is also a cons t ructive ihfluoncc. Ai'to r weighing tho pros und cons
of tho si tuo.tion it is not thought th.i\t tho rec ent improvom:)nt in this distr ict

Deed restricte d in parts but provisions loosely drawn; protection against
racial hazards bcli0vod effective. Zoning largely single-family with limited
multi - family in parts, Convonionccs o.ro all rensono.bly avo.ilable, This area
might be termed a heal th o.rea .• It has considoro.ble clcvution and is o.bove fog
district, and was first developed some 25 y(!ars a.go as a resort for those suffer ing from pulmono.ry o.ilioonts . Recently, under stimulus of FHA financing, mnny new
rosidonces of suburban cho.ractcr havo been constructed, but it is still viewed
o.s a 11 heo.lth 11 section o.nd o. number of so.nitariums and small cottages for the

ranges from stand a rd to substandard quality o.nd mnintonance nvoro.gos only nfnir •
Population and improvements arc extremely hotorogcneous. This characteristic is
even more apparent in the hatched portion of tho area where lo.nd development
c.vcrngos loss than 10% o.rd improvomcnts ro.ngo from shacks to mansion and estate

Land improved 6<$. Zoning is mixed but mainly single-family with limited nrultifamily. Conveniences are all fairly available. This areo. has developed from an
eo.rly beginning as o. sumrnor semi-mounto.in resort o.nd hD.s developed slowly during
the po.st 25 yeo.rs to D. yeo.r-round residentiul neighborhood. Flood ho.zo.rds ware
formcrly n distinct retardant but, with commencement of o. permo.nont flood control
program in 1935, four of this mono.cc ho.s subsided o.nd remains lo.rgoly o.s o. mental
unfo.vornblo influonco. Under the stimulus of FHA fino.nc ing and its glon- liko
oho.rm the a.roe. hns experienced o. distinct up.,nrd trend during tho past sovernl
years. With tho background outlined it cnn bo readily soon tho.t improvom:mts,
populo.tion and mnintonunce, vhilo groatly improvo<l, nro still very hotorogcneous
in cho.rnctor. Conflicting influences me.kc it oxtromcly difficult to predict the

a clco,r picture of it. Construction rangco from standard to substandard with some
11
J c rry building". Jfa intenonco in gcnoro.l is fair with pride of occupo.ncy being

or c hards , Deed restrictions have expired upon about 3o% of area and balance
expires January 1 , 1940. A well coordi no.ted effort is being made to have racial
r6st rictions renewed or extended, in perpetuity . This is unincorporated territory
under County gove rnment and zoning is inadequate. This nrca is handicapped by
inadequnte tro.nsportntion and shopping fncilitics. Schools aro good end rco.dily

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA
Terrain: Level to rolling with a gro.do from north to south running from an
elevation of 2000 rt. to 1500 ft. No construction hazards .. It is difficult
to c::;timatc the land improved a·ting to fact thut homcsitcs r un from l to 20
acres, Deed restrictions ho.vo expired u9on 75% of e.ron nnd more will expire
on Jnnunry 1, 1940, An effort to renew or extend provisions providing rncinl
prott}Ction is m:ioting with success. This unincorporated territory is under
County government whose zoning ordinances e.re inadequate. Public transportation
is inadequate , shoppini; centers a re distant from p11rts of area. Schools are good
and readily avo.ilable , and church facilities are convenient, Up to 1905 thisarea
was largely citrus groves , and development began by the purchase of these groves

DESCRIPTION ALTu CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA :

(Continued from preceding po.go)

wholesale manner in whic h indigenous plant life of the var ious sections
of our nation have bGcI'!. injected into the decor ative features of those
various estates. ilorticultural and flor iculturo.1 novelties of all sec tions of tho nation have been introduced into tho decorative scheme of
the vnrious holdint: s. Tho over greens of tho eastern sco.boar d and Pacific
Northwest arc particularly in cvidonco, and on New Yeo.rs Eve , Santa Anita
Avenue is ablaze with an electri cal displo.y from these ovorgrcons whi ch
bordor that thoroughfar e. Thero is, however , indications of o. transition
in tho area . While !TW.lly o r iginc.l owners o.ro still residents , properties are
more rutd mere passing into control of 2nd and 3rd generation owners . This
is definitely suggested by the fact tho.t within tho pust few yco.rs sove r ul
of these old estates, which for various reusons , ho.ve bec ome f\liennted from
original ovmcrs , have been subdivided; the old mo.nsions d ♦molished turl loss
pretentious structures and grounds hove tnken their place. This is particularly obvious in tho district bet.vcen Co.lrworo.s and Muriposo. Sts. o.nd
Santa Anitn. nnd Bl Molino Avco. In this district at loo.st ono old estate
has boon subdivided and 20 new 5 to 7 room bungalows of modern design o.nd
extrn standard construction have boon erected on generous sized lots to
to.kc tho plv.ce of the old improvements. Demolition of another origirui.l
old mnnsion was observed in another part of the o.roa . V/hat this portended
could not be leo.rnod , but there is no doubt thiJ.t this district is in u
transition period.
If imn.giru:.tion vtorc allowed full swny, bused upon
recent dovelopmonts, n 1st grnde might logically be assigned , based upon
rosidontinl 1losiro.bility over the next 10 or 15 years. However, the area u~,
o. whole r,ives no such optomistic indico.tion rmd , bused upon present definite
prospects , it is thought thl\t all that is justified iG n grndo of "high
ycllow 11 with the sucgostion thnt n future survey will break the area down
into scv c rnl gro.des .

route was di scarcl.ed and it lay dormant as a swOJDpy tract 1n1.til it ;ms included
in a WPA projoct 1 cleared and drai ned. (Ho\f this was accomplished was not
researched). Aft or this improvement the area. nas platt ed and placed upon the
mnrket as a high grade 11 commu.ters 11 subdivisio n. Under the stinrulus of promtional
effort and. FHA Ti tl o II financing, great progress has been made in its develop ment.
Construction runs from standard or better grade. Archi tcctural designs a.re
individually attractive und hnrmmious as a vi'hole . Population bids fair to be
homogonoous. Owing to the convenience of tho location to the ncr.1 Los Angcl es City
Civic Center the aroo is a popular one ,1ith City, County, State nnd Fedoral
employees. Land vo.J.ues ore not stabilized but run from $10 to $15 per front foot-.

Terrain: Generally level, with some grades, No construction hazards •.. Land
improved 501,. Zon ing is mixed and inadequate. Conveniences are cll readily
available. Some streets not improved._.,. This is ono of the older sections of San
Gabriel and has developed into a nondescript 11 buffer 11 area, of mixed singlefamily dwellings, low-grade nrul ti-family structures, bungalow courts and auto
can;is. Construction is inclined to be substandard, al though there a.re some
standard quality i~rovemcnts •. Population is heterogeneous as is also general
appearrui.ce of area. The favorable infl ucnce of better areas to the north is
oore than offset by the detrimental influence of the main line of the Southern
Pacific Railroad just below its southern border und proximity of the large
Mexican settlement •.. Al though not blighted there· is little future prospect for
the area nnd it is accorded a 11 low ycllo'.7»· grade.

Land improved 25%. Zoning is predominantly s i ngle-family ,1ith many blocks permit•
ting duplexes and some zoned for larger nru.l tiplcs . Conveniences are all roo.dily
available including rap id transit to Los Angeles City Center upon both Huntington

never had uny particular direction. During the past few yenrs under stimulus of
FHA f inancing (both Title I & Title II) quite a little activity ho.s developed.
Constrt'.ction has a wi de range of quality running from standard to poor substandard.
Main tenan ce is spotted and is only fair at best. Population, improvements and
orchi tectural designs arc all heterogeneous. Nmr construction ,1hich is generally
of good quality is largely in four .. districts: between Minto & Thelma near Huntingi,

along the winding hillside streets on the south slopes of tho hills to the south
of Volley Blvd. This devolopmcnt inQicatos that in time this area should be

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,

Terrain: Level with no construction hazards or flood threats . Land in:q:iroved 60%.
Deed restrictions have expired. Zoning mixed but generally sin gle-family residential, Schools , churches and trading centers are readily available, Local
transportation facilities are inadequate but interurban service to Pasadena and
Los Angoles is ample. This area is some 25 to 30 yoars old, and its development
has been gradual , and largely without direction, Numdrous acreage tracts scattered
throug,.'1.out are devoted to citrus groves and poultry r aising. FHA finan cing bas
stilID.llated building and the past five years have probably been t ho nx>st active in
the area 1 s history. I nprovemcnts are heterogeneous as to age, tYPo ond. const ruction. Maintenan ce is generally of good choracter 001.d indicates pride of occupancy.
Al though there is a wide spread in incoruo, population ia largely hoirogencous . New
construction is of good quality and architectural designs are attractive. The
location of the area south of Hu.'ltington Blvd. and its proximity to Santa Anita
Park and race track is a favorable influence. Price brackets shown above are
nominal only , as size of homosi tes vary greatly and arc a material price factor.
All things considered it is felt that tho area is entitlod to a 11 high yellow" grade.

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,
Terrain: Level. No construction hazards but possible threat of flood along a
wash which runs b et\vcon 8th and 10th Avenues, Land improved 35'% based upon 1/2
aero homesites, Docd restrictions have expired and zoning is mixed; · however, area.
is predominantly single-family rosidential. Convoniencos are avo.ilablo but not
readily so. So\1ora are lacking and a majority of the streets are not yet plo.tted, .
The area is some 30 yoars old and was developed as on orcho.rd district. It has
gradually grown into a sustenance homestead. soction, ;1i th lands solling from $1000
to $1000 per aero. There are fmv, if any, homesi tes of less than 1/2 acre• .
Scattered throughout are numerous poultry farms, citrus and walnut groves of
various sizes, While price ranges are not feasible, nominal vnJ.ues run from $1800
for rui 18-year old 3-room cottage and 1/2 acre to $6000 for an 18-year old 8-room
2-story residence and 1/2 acre of land. Needless to say population, improvements,
age , architectural stylos, construction and maintenance are all of a heterogeneous
naturo. New construction, which is largely confined to the district ;ves t of Second
Avenue and south of Valnctt Avenue is of good quality, having, with few exceptions,
been finan ced with FHA Title II lolll"ls OJ1d built under FHA supervision. While tho
area has many detrimentnl factors, tho volume of new and bettor improvements seem
to warrlll"lt assigning a 11 mcdiol ycllow11 grade.

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACJ"ERIS'TICS OF AREA,
Terrain: Level with no construction hazards. Flood Control Board now working to
eliminate flood threat in southwest portion. Land improved 40% including citrus
groves as part of homesites. This area is under county government and zoning is
limited to requiring minimum of 0000 sq. ft. of land per famil y. Convenience!!
arc all available but not readily so. Thi s area consists of an unincorporated
comnru.nity known as Te!l]?le City, which has slo,vly developed over the past 25 or 30
years. Under the stimulus of FHA financing: and the elimination of a 11 ?!,attoon
Bonded Dept. 11 it has had its period of greatest activity within the past few years.
There are many poultry farms, citrus and walnut groves of varying sizos scattered
throughou t tho area. Population, improvernonts, age, ' architectural designs, maintenance and quality of construction are all of a heterogeneous character. New
construction, ,vhich is largely under FHA supervision, has been in considerable
volume and has bcttorod grade of area and increased its desirability. The small
section of this area lying to tho \vest of San Gabriel Dlvd. is of slightly better
quality, being developed in small horaesites interspersed with citrus groves, but
this small nci@).borhood suffers from dead-ond streets to the west and the hazard
of the high- speed traffic artery, San Gabriel l3lvd•. to t he east. Ho wever, it i s
not thought foasibl e to accord better than a 11 mcdial yel l ow 11 grade.

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,

Terrain: Level "ith no construction hazards. Possible flood threat as area lies
between two major washes. Lond improved 60~. Being under County government only
zoning restriction l imits to minimum of 5,000 sq. ft. lond occupied by single
family. Conveniences are all available but not conveniently so . This area is
the ne\1er part of EL M'.lnte and hns been developed ui thin the past 10 years.Several years ago n U.S. Housing authority low-cost housing project consisting
of about 200 smoll s i ngle family d\'•ellings were located here . Th i s is a secluded
area with 1.:;rell laid out and shaded streets, \1hich add charm to tho neigb.borhood.
The area was originally developed under high pr essure procxitionol offorts and
construction is very largely of substandard character. Nowor construction,
ho \1cver, is of hotter grade and mnintenanco indicates prido of occupancy. Population is homogoncoua as to tYPe and architectural designs o.ro fairly uniform.
The low tax rate shovm is a favorable factor but lack of dood restrictions and
proper zoning is a dotrimental influence. Owing to poor location ond substandard
construction it is not thought thnt higher than a 11 modio.l y01low 11 grade is
justified•.

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,

Terrain: Level. No construction hazards. Flood threat remote. Land improved
BO%. Uninc.orporated comn:runity under County government and zoning is inadequate.
Pattern of area, however, is well established and is predominantly single-family.

Conveniences are all readily available. This is the oldest and best residential
section of El Uonte and has been slowly developing over the past 25 or 30 years.
Construction is gsnerally of standard quality and maintenance indicates pride of
occupaJ1cy. Population is homogeneous. Streets are well-shaded and improved.
While i nprovernents differ widely as to age and design they are generally harmonious.
Proximity to the 11 rod 11 area to tho northwest and lack of deed and zoning pro tee,..
tion are the roost detrimental influences. The area is definitely declining and
it is not thought that better than a 11 modial yollo\v 11 grade is warranted.

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,
Terrain: Level. No construction hazards. Land· improved 90%. Zoning is
mixed residential. ,Conveniences are all readily aVailable. This is the old
section of Pomona nnd is over 60 years old, ond many. former residents have
moved into newer districts, ond this exodus is sti11 continuing. The avero.ge
age of dv101lings has been considerably lowered by volume of new construction
,~,hi ch has taken plnce in tho past several. years. These new improvements are
of modern designs but construction is inclined to be substandnrd. Both populo.tion mi.d improvements ore extremely heterogeneous. Lruid values range from
$10 to $15 per front foot and property values seem inclined. to hold up remarkably for an ro-ca of this type. The:: infiltration of Mexican f,anilies is
confined to a small section in the extreme western po.rt and is not thought to
be serious nor is it believed tho.t it v:ill extend further, The area is declining very slowly and this fnctor together with the continuing volume of new construction is responsible for according a 11medial yellow11 grade,

Land improvei

&::/fa.

Z.oning is mixed

but generally single family residential. Conveniences are all readily availabl'i.
This is one of the oldest areas in Pomona, developnent having begun over 50 years
ago. It is suffering: from excessive age and the fact that it is on the 11 wrong
side of the tracks":. _ It is largely surrounded by business 1 industry and Mexican

and Negro districts. Construction is quite generally substandard and maintenance
is spotted and orilY fair at best • . Both population and improvemer:i-ts are extremely
heterogeneous. A new subdivision is being attempted on 5th and 6th Sts.west of
Myrtle and about 20 new improvements built during the past years. Local real tors
express the opinion that this is a misplaced. developnent. The few Mexicans and
Negro families are largely adjacent to the 11 red. 11 area wast and south and is said
not to be a threat to··the greatest part of this area. Indications are that the
further decline of this araa will be slow and that it will not become entirely
blighted for many years to come . Therefore a 11low yellow 11 grade is accorded..

Terrain: Ts;pical canyon topography
with varying construction hazards. Land improved. 3r:J% of the 00% available for
building sites. There are no deed restrictions nor zoning; however, terrain and
iso lation are -protective elements. Transportation limited to private automobiles.
Free bus service to public schools . Churches, trading and amusement centers are
remote, the nearest being Westwood Village. Originally opened up some 15 or 16
years 8€fJ as a small 11 cabin 11 type project. This area has improved considerably
in the past few years and nev1 construction is now more pretentious and of nroch
better quality. In consequence the area is extremely heterogeneous, improvements
varying from two-room cabins and shacks to new modern 6 & 7 room bwlg:alows.
There are very few improved streets and the majority shown on the map are nonexistent and are topogra:phically impossible.. Platting has been largely arbitrary,
contours being followed as im9rovements were made. In this respec t lack of r estrictions has been a decided detriment, Beverly Glen Blvd., the principal
thoroughfar e , is a through trunk highwey, and well traveled, but is narrow and
winding with a number of steep grades.

DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA:

(Continued from page 2EO)

Lot volues run from $500 to $650. Real tors state that corrrpeti tion of FHA
Title I financing has adversely affected both price and rental values. This

area, in coJ'!JJlon with other canyon developments, faces the hazards of fire ,
floods and steep grades, Am1)le forestrati◊n , coupled with rustic scenic
beauty , lend charm to the neighborhood., These natural ad.vantages, together
with prospect of n, favorable developnent of adjacent mountainous sections,
con s titute elements distinctly favorable to the future of the area, Under the
circumstances it is felt that only a 11 provisional yellow 11 grnd.e should be accorded.

11
set backs 11 and racial hazards, etc. Conveniences are all r eadily available. Bus
transportation on Wilshire Blvd. This area was platted shortly before the depression , but principal development has taken place in past 2 or 3 years, being occasioned by growth of U.C.L.A., which is its chief as set, It is predominantly a
well ordered multi-family district with some fraternity buildings and student boarding houses. Lot value s are increasing '1:1,eing currently fro m $60 to $80 per front
foot in readily access i ble portion. Proximity to U.S. Soldiers 1 Horne and a cemetery are detrimental influences. The area is accorded a tthigh yellow 11 grade,

8. DESCRil'TION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,
Terrain: Level with favorable grades; no construction hazards. Lond improved
?Cff,. Zoning permits multi-family structures. Conveniences are all readily
available. This area has been developed in the past 15 years but greatest

activity has occurred within the last 4 or 5 years. The U.C.L.A. has been a
stabilizing influence and stinrulus. The area is somewhat far-flung and improvements vary in its various sections, with fraternity and boarding houses
predominant in its nor thern part, duplexes and small multi-family dwellings in
the southern portion and apartment houses of varying size occupying tte strip
along Wilshire Blvd • .Architectural designs lack uniformity and range from the
conservative to u1 tra modern with a few freak types thrown in for good measure.
Sprinkled throughout the area are single family dwellings of good construction
and design which are r apidly becoming und.er-improv-ements. Under conditions described it is logical that wide spread values in lots of from $00 to $100 per
front foot should prevail. The tendency of this area is definitely toward residential income properties, However, the influence of surrounding areas is such
that their present high character seems assured for an indefinite period. Therefore, a designation of "high yellow11 seems justified.

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISl1CS OF AREA
Terrain: Level to rolling, semi-hillside in northern port Where there is slight
construction hazard due to contours. Lm1d. improved 85%, Owing to fxt that this
orea is largely in county territory, there is little zoning protection, The
small district north of HollyviciQd Dr,, east of Hancock, offers limited deed protection which is enforced.. Conveniences are all reOO.ily available, This is one
of the oldest sections of West Hollywood,- development having begun over 25 years
ago, In the northern port of the area, the older bungclows on semi-hillside lots
are being replaced. by neV1er Md more pretentious improvements, Generally, the
area was developed 1::y speculc.tive buyers and construction is Of nn inferior
quality. Mcintennnce, however, is of a good character. Both improvements and
population are inclined to be heterogeneous. Tow to the influence of the surrounding area, it is thought that the part of the area. north of Sunset Blvd. gives
promise of an upward trend of desirability . Average lot values in the area run
approximately $25 per front foot! The area is accorded a 11medial yellov: 11 grade .

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,
Terrain: Level with favorable grades and no construction hazards. Land improved
90%; Dbed restrictions , if they ever existed , h8.v e expired and , located in unincorporated county tcrri tory, zoning is sketchy at best. Churches, schools, trtmsportation and trading centers are all conveniently available. However, the pattern
of the area is quite well cstahlished :md its proximity to Beverly Hills will undoubtedl y continue to be a stf:'.bilizing inf:l:uencc. In fact, the indic:->.t ions ore
t hat t h is stimulus is tending toward on ui::,v,ord trend in grade. \Vhile the area is
predominantly single fooiily in its meke-up, there has been some encroochment of
cheaper class duplex0s and four fD,11ily flats. Improvements are of fair chnracter
but some inclined to be heterogeneous which is also true of the popula tion. There
is an inclination toward overcro'.'ding and there arc mony cn.ses where two bungalovts
will be fqund on one lot. Lot values run from $20 to $25 per front foot ruid are
snid to be in good demand which is also true of rentcls. Lending institutions report favorable experience in the 1Jrea 0 Owing to lack of deed or zoning protection,
its proximity to a lower grade area to the east and business district to the south,
it is felt that the orea should not be .atcorded high.Br than a 0 1/:lw C11 grade.

DESCRIPTION AND CHARACfERl&TICS OF AREA
Terrain: Level with no construction hazards other than the fact that there is
much adobe soil. Land improved 7f:J%. The ar ea is deed restricted but provisions
leave much to be desired. Conveniences are all readily available . This territory was originally pl aced on the market from 15 to 16 years ago but has developed quite slowly. While pr edominantly a single family neighborhood , the r e are
many mu1 ti-family dwellings. scat t ered. throughout; most of than being duplexes.
The section south of Melrose is newer and most of the new construction is in
tha t part. These i mprovements have beun largely built by speculators and are of
only fair grade. Many of them remain unsold, The lot value is around $20 per
front foot. Owi!"lf?: to the f a.ct that the area is located in unincorporated county
t erritory, there is a possibility of an infiltrotion of subversive racial el ements. It is thought t hat the area will remain static for at least 5 years before any further decline takes place , The area is accord0d a 11med.ial yel l ow 11

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,
Terrain: Level with no construction hazards. Land improved 75%. This area
is located in the Ctty of Beverly Hills and while deed r es trictions ar e lacking,
city zoning is highly protective. Conveniences are all readily available. This
tract was subdivided and developed some 12 or 13 years ago_._ The area is zonei
as a nrul ti-family residential d istrict and it has prGdomina"ntly developed. along

those lines. Improvements arc largely duplexes, . construction and maintenance
being of high quality. Archi tectuxal designs are pleasing and improvements are
harmonious. Popul ation i s homogeneous. Recently,. there lui.s been a tendency
toward lerge i mprovements, containing a greater number of uni ts. Single family
residences are cxc:cllently maintainod. and assure high pride of ownership. Lot
values are around $80 per front foot. Olympic Blvd. constitutes a traffic
hazard. Al though having all the qualificat ions of
higher grade,_ the admixture
of multi-family ond single family dwellings is thought to preclude better tbml
a 11high yellow 11 grade.

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,

Terz:ai n : Level with favorable grades and no construction hazards. Land i mproved
9()%. Zoning is somewhat spotted, being generally single family , however, with
multi-family construction permitted. in stated locations. Conveniences all readily
available and proximity to dovmtown business district is also a favorable influaice.
This area was subdivided some 20 odd years ago and its development was rapid. It
is one of the oldest sections of Hollywood and the trend is quite decidedly toward
rosidc:. 1tial income properties. Many sections of the area are entirely built u:p
with 5 and 7 room bt:i::-..e;al.ows \vhich are well constructed. and maintained,. This is
particularly true i n the northwest section~ Mortgage lenders report an unfavorable leriding eX':lerience in this district with a m.unber of foreclosures upon ,...ti.ich
losses were taken. It will be noted that the P. E. Izy-. runs diagonally thru. the
area and while this adds to trru1s)X)rtation conveniences, it is said to be distinctly detriffiL."'ntal so far as sales are concerned. This area presents a borderline case ond. in many respects is entitled to a 11 low blue 11 grade. However, there
is very little opportmi.ity for further development and it is thought ~ t the area
is al.ready slowly declining. Therefor0, a 11high ycllow 11 grade is assigned.

DESCRIPT!ON AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,

Terrain: Level, with no construction hazards. Land improved. 90'%,. Zoni ng permits limited to multi-family dwellings. Conveniences all readily available.
Development began in this area some 16 or 17 years ago and it has been built up
quite rapidly. Population is quite largely Jewish in character, approximately
40% of the inhabitants being of this race. lots are sub-standard and improvements \'ihich are predominantly 5 room dwellings, are crofflied. The section between
Santa Monica Blvd. and Willoughby Ave. is older and roost of the new construction
has beon in tho southern part of the district. Most of the new multi-family construction is in t h i s part. Average lot values run around $30 per front foot.
The typo of construction is generally good and development has been fairly uniform. This is a popular working-man 1 s district am, while declining, will
probably maintain its stability for a number of years to come. The area is

Terrain: Level with no construction hazards. Land improved 9(J%.
Zoning is for
multi-family improvements. Conveniences all readily available, Transportation
is supplied by buses. Mea was subdividBd. and placed on marlwt around 1923. It
was at first largely a single family neighborhood, but latterly i mprovements have
been principally dupl exes tmd quadruplexes. Recent construction has been of good
quality but there is said to have been much 11 jerry building 11 in the area in its
eorlior ye(;\.!'s. Maintenonce is spotted but generally good. Improvements are fairly i.mif'orm. The increasing concentration of Jewish families is said to be a
derogatory influence and this, together with the predominance of multi-family dwellings, leads to the conclusion that the area should not be accorded higher than a
11 low yellow 11 grade.

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACrERISTICS OF AREA: Terrain: Level with favorable grades,.
No construction hazards. Land improved so:%,. Zoning is predominantly single
family, balance rrrulti-family. Conveniences all readily available. Transportation
is supplied by buses. This area has been developed. within th0 -past 15 years. The
western part was formerly an oil field. Recent construction has been largely in
this part , principally along Orlando and Croft Avenues, snd. has consisted. pr incipally of modernistic style 2 to 4 family dvrcllings.. Construction and maintenance
generally of good quality. I mprovements along Crescent Heights Blvd., La Jolla
and Svmctzcr Aves. arc more uniform and of better architectural designs than in
other ports. Tho trend of improvements is toward income properties. Population
inclined. to be heterogeneous owing to high percent of Jewish inhabitants. The
matter of zoning the district to the east of aroa, which is in County territory
and was formerly occupied by the La Brea oil field, is before the County Plan.riing
Commission, and a favorable determination will favorably affect all adjacent
pro'Xrties and an ad.verso decision will have the opposite effect. This area is
undoubtedly declining but current opinion is to the effect that it will remain
mor e or less static for a. number of years to come. A 11medial yellow 11 gr::ide is
accorded.

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,

Terrain: Level, with no construction hazards. Land improved. 9ff/,. Deed restrictions have largely expired. and zoning permits up to 4 family dwellings. Conveniences are all readily available. This area was subdivided. soroo 30 years ago
with ample deed restrictions, most of which b.w"e now expired. Two ma.in business
thoroughfafes (Hollywood & Sunset BlvdsJ traverse the area and a third (Franklin
Ave .) forms its northern boundary. Some high class apartment houses are located
upon these arterial h ighwa,ys. Off the business stree ts the area is zoned to permit 4 family dwellings , but ill"![)rovements are predominantly old single fa'l1ily residences, many of whkh arc still occupied by original owners. Construction is of
sound ctlaracter and maintenance generally shows pride of ovmership, Architectural
designs are antiquated rurl type of improvements vary greatly in size. Popula tion
is beginning to incline toward heterogonei ty. • Area is said to suffer from improper drainage and to be infested wi. th tcrmi tes. Incr easing lot values is partially offsetting depreciation and obsolescence. On the basis of l to 4 family
dwelling area it is accorded a 11medial yellow 11 grade.

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,
Terrain: Level with favorable grades and no construction hazards. Land improverrent of 90% precludes upward trend of desirobility for single family dwellings.
Deed restrictions, which are far from adequate, are rapidly eJqiiring and zoning
permits multiple family housing in mDnY parts of area. Conveniences are all
reed.ily available. This area is one of the older parts of Hollywood proper and
was subdivided some 20 years or more ego. It :nus since been built up with 5, 6
and 7 room dwellings. Since deed restrictions began to expire the trend has been
strongly to nrultiple frniily dwellingsj in fact , single family dwellings in this
area are considered an under-improvement. From Sunset Blvd. south to Fountain Ave.
between Wilcox Blvd, & Highland Ave. there is a strong Catholic concentration
which favorably influenc es prices ani demand in that neighborhood, Proximity to
industry on the south and "business 0 n the north, while decreasing desirability of
single family dwellings, has a stimulating effect on land values. Ad.jacenco to
the center of the growing radio broaicasting industry has been a favorable factor,
pro-ticularly upon rentals. Construction is of good quality and maintenance, while
somevlhat spotted, is generally good. Improvements as a whole are inharmonious.
Population is inclined to be heterogeneous, (15% being .American born Jews)wi th
indications of increasing number of lower class residents. La Brea Avenue, vthich
traverses the area, is a business street nnd a traffic hazard. The area is accorded a 11 low yellow" grade.

DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,

Terrain: Level \vi th no construction hazards. Land improved 90%. Zoning permits
mu1 ti-family dwellings.
Conveniences are all readily available. This area was
subdivided some 20 years ago and development was very rapid. Construction ranges
from good to substandard with some 11 jerry building11 • Maintenance is very spotted,
being fair to good we st of Las Palmas Ave. and poor to fair in balance of area.
Thi s, to gether with wide range in a ge of improvements, gives the area a heterogeneou s aspect. Population, 15 to 20i of which are Jevlish, is inharmonious and
indications are that it \1ill become rrore so. While thes0 are comparatively fe.v
multiple fa...-iily structures, the area being prcpondcrontly single family duellings,
tho trend is to,1ard that tYPe of improvement. In fa.ct, with lot values around
$40 per front foot, construction of 5 & 6 room cottages is hardly practical, even
at prevailing high rentoJ.s. This rentru. situation has been largely the result
of increasing employment in the rootion picture and broadcasting studios located.
in close proximity to t he area. Regardless of favorable p:dice trends tho desirability of tho aroa from the standpoint of single family })6mes is downward, and,
in view of the numerous unfavorable factors, tho area ts-"'itccordea a n1ow yellow 11
grade.

Torrain: Level uith favorable grades. No construction hazards, Land improved
90,,;. Doed restrictions permit mu.ltiple-fomily structures and protect against
subversive racial elements. Zoning is nrulti- family residential . Conveniences
of highest quality are all readily available. This area was subdivided about 18
years 8,f'P and has developed into one of the best and mat popular muJ. ti- family
districto in t he city. The predominant type of improvgnent is duplexes generally
of ? to 8 room units and quadruplexes of 5-room units. Construct ion and maintenance are of excellent character and architectural designs are harm:,hious.
Population is of the u;,per medium income group, approximately 2oi of which are
Jewish families , The southern half is considered roore desirable and CO!IQllldS
bettor rentals than the northern part. This is probably on account of its
proximity to the widely known 11 Miracle Milelr trading aroa along Wilshire Blvd.
Land value s nro firm and vacant lots havo sold as high as $].00 per front foot.
Tho apartment houses in the area aro l argely located in the southwest pa.rt. Tho
block cast of La Brea A.vo. between 2nd & 3rd Sts. • which has long boen occupied
by a horticultural nursory, is now in process of being subdivided. Deed restriction s ho.vo not as yet been disclosed . This aroo, if Jud.god from the standpoint

Terrain: Level to rolling with some sharp grades. No construction hazards. Lond
improved 80%. Deed restrictions have expired. Zoned to permit multi-family
inprovements with some locutions spot zoned for business. Convonicncos all
readily n.va ilo.blo. This nroo \Vas subdivided between 45 and EO years a.go, and 'wn.s
at one time n. high- class residential section. It later became oil-producing
torri tory ond many shallow oil wells were drilled . As those stopped producing,
zoning ordinances rt erc enacted prohibiting this type of development. Since that
time development hus been steadily toward mul ti-fwnily improvcmonts. These cover
many sizes o.nd ty-pcs o.nd rru1.g0 from high-class apartment buildings to mediocre
flats rutd bungalow courts. The area. is extremely spotted and both popul:.:i.tion and
improvc,., icnts are heterogeneous. While some zections of this o.roo are definitely
on the verge of blight ond infiltration of subversive races is m::ire than a threat,
it is thought that a mrc nccurnto reflection would be given by according a "low

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA
Terrain: Level to rolling ; no construction hazards. Land improved 8~. Deod
restrictions have exp i r ed . Zoning is mixed. Approximately 20~ singl o-family,
40% duplexes, 40% multi- family and apartments . i~inimum per family ground coverage; singl(?ofamily 5,000 sq. ft.; duplexes 2 , f:00 sq. ft ,; mul tiplos 600 to 1000
sq. ft .
Regardless of zoning the area is over\vholmingly single-family dwellings.
Conveniences are all readily available, including intor- urban sorvi cc to Los
Angel os . This is t he original residen tial section of the city of .Alhambra and in
llXlst sections is qui to heavily buil t up . Construction runs from substari.dard to
standard and maint enan ce, while spotted , is generally of good quality. Population,
irq:irovcmcn ts and arch i toctural designs arc strong.ly inclined to be heterogeneous.
The eastern plll"t of o.roa is IOOro sparsely scttlod and the greater po.rt of the now
construction hns been in this section , While there is still a heavy percent of
home ownership there is a strong tendency toward rental. properties. Thero o.re
four blocks east of Garfield north of Mission Road nhich contain 12 Negro families ,
who have lived in this locat ion for many years. This is the only Negro concentration in tho city and informed opinion is that this small settlemen t detrimentally
affects only abutting blocks to the north and east. The arcn is so small that it
\Tas tho11&ht best to treat it in this way rather thon by setting up a separate
area. The area as a wholo is \7ell regarded and is assigned a 11 medio.l. yellow 11
grade.

readily available. This ol<l. unrestricted area has long been inhabi tod by tho
servant clas s who ,1cr0 employed by woalthy familios in thci higher grade areas to
the west and south. This district was originally much smaller but constant
infiltra t i on into other sections as deed rostrictions expired has created o. real
menace which is gr e..."..1..}.y concerning property o;mers of Pasadena and Al tadena.
Popul a t i on , i q:irov e.."'\Cl1 ts and rre.intenanc e arc all highly hctcrogenoous. Many

subversive racial olO"D.ents, The adjoining blue area to the west is protected from
the subversive elements by deed restrictions. The o.rca. is bligtl.ted and its futuro

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREk
Terrain: Low lying arroyo bottom. No construction hazards but definite flood
threat. Land improved 3~. Zoning is mixed but generally permits nrulti-farnily
structures. Conveniences are all reasonably available. This misplaced development is quite old and evidently started as a squatters settlement. It is located
in the bottom of the Arroyo Seco, and in a heavy flood year might be entirely
vlipod out. Construct ion ranges from 11 shack: 11 to substandard quality; Population,
irrq:irovemcnts, mainton.ance and architectural designs are all homogeneously bad.·
The proposed 11 Freewayi• projected as a high speed arterial is routed through this
area and some informod sources advonce the theory that the area will bcnofi t from
such a project. This is deemed pure speculation ond the area is assigned a
11 meditll rcd 11 grade.

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA

$_o2.,.l'9.

Terrain: Level. No construction hazards. Land improved &Y~. Zoning is negli•
gible. Conveniences are all readily available. This is the original San Gabriel
settlement which was establ i shed at the time the Mission of that name was built
in 1776. As it was in the b eginning the neighborhood is distinctly Ma,;:ican and
some of the decend.ants of the original inhabitants still r eside in the area. Wi th
the exception of a f ew res idences occupied by these old f amilies, there i s no
apparent pr i de of occupancy or ownership. The vast majority of the popul a tio n ,
while .,Amcr i cnn-born, arc still 11 peon Mcxicn.ns 11 , and constitu te a dist i nctly subversi ve r a ci al influen ce. Many of tho Mexican-born inhabitants were repatriated
during the d epressi on yoo.rs und their places in many cases are said to have b een
taken by hybrid Mexicfl?ls of American birth who arc a distinctly less dosirabl c
type. Construction and maintenance aro uniformly of poor quality and area ha.s on
extremely shabby and ill-kept appearonco. This aroo. is considered a mono.co to
this whole section and pressure is being oxcrtcd to confine the population and
keep it f rom infiltrating into other districts. The area is accorded a 11 modiol
rcd 11 grade.

construction is substo..'1dard and much of it is of the 11 jerry built" variety.
Crowded improvements in parts of the area constitute a dis tinct fire hazard nnd

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,
Terrain: Side slopes and bottom of a canyon. No construction hazards. Land
improved 6~ out of a possible 90%. Conveniences are all reasonably available,
including proximity to downtown Hollywood. Street illJ)rovements are adequate in
southern part of area, but in northern section many of the thorough.fares are dirt
roads, This area. was subdivided about 25 years ago and its greatest development
was prior to 1925. Since that time Mulholland Dam at the northern boundary of the
area has proved a definito hazard to desirability, for while engineers pronounce
tho dam safo thore is a wide spread popular feeling to tho contrary. Construc~ion
is generally of high grade and maintcmance sho,vs pride of occupancy, Population
is fairly homogeneous, and many original o,mers still occupy their homes.

Terrain: Level with no construction hazards . Land improved 901,. Deed restrictions, if any, have expired. Zoning is mixed , but generally permits multi-family
structures. Conveniences are all readily available. This area \70.S subdividod
about 1912 as a low rental workingman Is district, Construction ranges from
sto.ndord to II jerry buil t 11 • Maintenance is goo.orally of poor quality and popula.tion is extremely heterogeneous and includes mo.ny subversive racial and social
oloments. Mul tiplo family structures, of which there a.re many, o.ro generally of
low grade and poor character; some of them located in the lo1rnr eastern section
are said to be op erated on a 11 bawdy houso 11 basis. Japanese and Filipinos are
scattered throughout the aroo with a concentration of them on strcots north of
HollY,.700d Cemetery, which is also an unfavorable influenco. Mexicans are located
in tho blocks adjoining the cemetery on both its east and '17ost borders. Tho
soction north of Sontn M::mica Illvd. and west of Gower St., lmown as the Cole
Estate Tract, is of much batter character than the r~st of the area, and piHces
and rentals aro materially higher. Were it not for a scattering of Japanese ond
Filipino residents this section would bo ontitled to o. higher grade. The area as
o. whole is assigned a 11 medinl rod~ grade.

was subdivided over 25 yours a.f:.""O o.s a popular price home district and has largely
r.iaintained the charo.r:teristics. Many of the improvements . arc of substandard
construction and maintenanco is spottod, being generally of a poor qunl i ty.
Scattered throughout the area are a nu.r:iber of small 11 :S" grade apartments , bung:olo,v
courts and other ruJ. ti- fa.o.ily dnollings. Tho population is highly heteroceneous
with mre thn.n a sprinkling of subversive rncia.l olemonts, there being several
concentrations of Jopweso nnd Negroes within the district. There is also quite
a Je,1ish population n.djacont to the syn0e,""'Or,11e ,,hich is locotcd in the northern

Terrain: Flat, low lying (river bottom). No construction hazards. Land improver"
40\t '!'here are no deed restrictions and zoning permits multiple family dwellings.
Conveniences: Bus transportation on Riveraitle Drive, Grade schools, churches
and shopping centers are all available. High School is some distance away. Thie
area was subdivided some 20 years ago and was doveloped as a workingman 1 s neighbor
hood. Construction and maintenance are of ordinary quality and quite spotted,
giving the area a heterogeneous aspect. Population is of the low-income laboring
group. Formerly the area was subject to flood, but recent flood. control work is
said to have overcome this difficulty. While zoned to permit linll tiplo dwellings,
there arc but "'£.ow of such structures, and those are m:istly cheap rental units.
Tho economic unstability indicated by the low-family income and the large ruoount
of foreclosures \Yhich hav e taken place over tho past few years , coupled with tho
presence of a limited 0.1rount of subv0rsive racial elements ll!ld a possible flood
hazard, does not wo.rrant higher thnn the 11 high red 11 grade assigned.

Terrain: Level with favorable grades. No construction hazards. Land improved

some 45 years a.go has been steadily declining for many years, and is characterized
by decadency l.llld obsolescence. Mrui.y of tho large old homes ha.ve been turned into
boardi ng and lodging houses or have been converted into nruJ. ti-family uni ts.
In:q:,rovcmcnts were originally of good construction but, owing to a very poor
quality of maintenance, ore in many cases in a dilapidated condition. Population
is heterogmcous ond subversive racial elements ore increasing. In the eastern
portion, which is within walking distance of the dO\mtO\m business district,
there ore a number of medium grade apartment hou ses. Many streets in the area
a.re dcfini to traffic hazards. The trend of this blighted area is still dovm,1ard
and - oncroachment of business ond apartment buildings would be a favorable factor.
The area is accorded a 11 modinJ. red 11 grade.

~ . Zoning for light and heavy industry, Conveniences are all readily available.
This is an old Mexi can and manufacturing neighborhood. Whether industry invaded
a Mexican settlement or whether the Mexican.a encroached upon an industrial district
is a moot que stion. The result is they are inextricably mixed. The district is
the poorest residential. soction of Alhambra and is characterized by a heterogeneouij
popul a tion and improvemen ts . Practically all of Al hnmbro. 1 s aubvoraivo population
is loco.tad here . '\'ihilo there axe a few fairly presentable 5 room cottages on tho
outskirts, ahaclcs nnd hovels predominate, giving tho area a slum appearan ce. The
rapid ancroo.chln~ t of industry during the pa"Ut 10 yeo.ra indicates that in time
this will bo considered in no sense a residential aoction. The aroa is assigned

Terrain: Level to rolling. No construction hazards. Land in:q::,roved 40i. Zoning
is mixed, princip.a lly single-family residential. Conveniences are all readily
available . This is an old section - started many years ago as a chicken ranch
section, soma of which still remain. Construction ranges from 11 shack. 11 to fair
quality standard. Maintenance , while spotted, is generally of poor character,
Populat ion and in:q::,rovements are extremely heterogeneous. Dwellings range from
shacks and shabby cottages to better types along main thoroughfare. It is said
that the area was blighted by an ad valorem tax district bond issue which has been
rGfunded during pas t year . In the process of this the county and city of Los
Angeles acquired nmch property, Much undeveloped lrui.d plus relief from ad valorem
bond taxes may stimulate the arro; however , other subversive influences a u.ch us

inharmonious ra.cioJ. clements, rG11.ders rui. in:q::,roved grade highly questionable.
Therefore, the area is accorded a 11 medial red 11 grade.

Terra i n : Level v1ith favorable grades - no construction hazards. LEmd improved
30%. Zoning very sketchy and subject to frequent changes ; predominantly single
fe.mily . ConveniEmces in unhatched parts ere fairly &vr.ilable . This orea i:::1
lergely in Counti territory , just outside th e Enwthorne city limits. Development
of this section as a suburben fanning district began mE>nY years 0.E:,0 1 but its pres - ~
ant r es idential ch::irecter b egnn less than 20 years rgo, Much of the l1atched portion is still in sma ll fenns and considerable part of the unhnt ched portion is •. ~-·
rural in its makeup. Under thtlse circumotanc us it i s not surprising that popu lation , improvements and mointonance are ext r emely heterogeneous. Many Japanf::lse
gardeners and Mexi c an form laborers ore found in the outlying districts . Oil
well e nd tc1nk farms occupy odjncent territory to the west.
The arco is assigned n "mediol red" grade.

Deed restI'ictions only protect against Negro race, und zoning is mixed ond unsatisfactory. Schools, churches c.nd trading centers conveniently available. Transportation is inadequnte. Many deod end streets, some unimproved. This subdivision
was platted end pleced on the market some 20 yeers of!J) . Hoviever, n number of improvements are 40 to So years old. This hes never be e n a popular district nnd,
under stimulus of FHA 'ritle I md Title II nnd expe.nsion of airplane industry, is
currently expe rie ncing its greatest t1.ctivity. Con struction r1mges fran "sh ack" to
standard quality. Mc.intenance is spotted but at best ·only fair. Population and
improvementR are extremely heterogeneous. The compuratively smell part south of
Ve nice Blvd; is tr.c best section of the area and contains most of the nev1 construction, . The area is definitely blighted ond is therefore accorded a "high red" grade .

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA,
Terrain: Flat meadow lfmd, consisting of hea:vy adobe soil. La Ballena Creek,
which bisects the areo from east to west, is the mo.in storm drain of the entire
west side of the City of Los .Angeles. Soggy, adobe soil constitutes construction
hazard. Land improved 20%. Single family residential. Conveniences all available.
Development of area bcgcn some years efp v·hcn several old frrune dwellings viere
moved into the area. In the pest 18 months, a numb er of dwellings-, financed
through 'F'HA Title I end Title II loans, .heve been erected. Meny streets unimproved
and impossible in wet weather. Construction 1s cheap and some improvements are
J e rry- built...
Mcint-=rnance generally poor. Population end improvements heteroge .n eous. La Ballonn storm. drain is said to constitute a slight Clood hazard. While
this area constitutes an ill conceived development which should never have been
subdivided, the great preponderance of nevi construction and lack of racial hazard
would seem to warrant assignment of a "high red" V-ade.

8. DESCRIPTION AND CHARACTERISTICS OF AREA

Terrain: Level. No flood or construction hazards. Land improved 90%.• Zoning
is mixed, but improvements are largely single family dwellings. Conveniences are
all readily available. This is the "melting pot" area of Los Angeles, and has ·•
long been thoroughly blighted. The Negro concentrotion is largely in the eastern
two thirds of the area. Original construction was evidently of fair q_uality but
l ack of proper m~intennnce is notnble, Population is unifomly of poor q_uali ty
and many improvementc are in a state of dilapidation. This eren is a fit location for a slum cl ec,rance project.
The area is nccold EJd a "low red" grade,
