Document Description
State law offers considerable flexibility in providing additional optional Elements beyond the seven State mandated Elements (Land Use, Circulation, Housing, Open Space, Conservation, Noise and Safety Elements) of a local General Plan. California Government Code Section 65303 enables a county or city to adopt any other Elements or address any other subjects which relate to the physical development of that county or city. Once adopted, an optional Element carries the same legal authority as any of the seven elements and must be consistent internally and with all other Elements of a jurisdiction's General Plan. The Historic Preservation Element is intended to better historic preservation into City procedures and interdepartmental decisions, and to create a meaningful partnership with the community in order to implement the City's historic preservation program. As set forth in the Vision Statement, the Historic Preservation Element is intended to ensure that the rich history of Long Beach is preserved through the identification, protection, and celebration of its historic resources which are valued for their role in the City's environment, urban design, economic prosperity, and contributions to the quality of life in its neighborhoods. The Historic Preservation Element establishes the goals, policies and implementation measures that affirm the City's commitment to historic preservation.
