Why is the local register important?

The local register identifies historic and architecturally significant properties, which have been determined to be important cultural resources to the City of Santa Ana. Based upon the significance of the contribution that these structures provide to the City, the City Council has deemed that special efforts shall be made to preserve these structures for the benefit of the community for years to come. As a result, anyone wishing to propose an exterior modification, relocation, or demolition of any structure on the local register must first have that request reviewed by the HRC and the City Council.
