The article discusses Los Angeles Conservancy, the largest historic preservation organization, as a recipient of the 2006 Daniel Burnham Award. Executive director Linda Dishman stated the organization intended to preserve individual buildings in Los Angeles, California. The preservation of post-war resources best represents the Los Angeles Conservancy. The city's adoption of a historic preservation overlay zone in 1982 and subsequent amendments were the conservancy's early advocacy efforts. The law is not ideal but proposed demolitions of the historic buildings and development plans in Los Angeles is ensured to be reviewed.
