Weho residents on Monday made a presentation to the Historic Preservation Commission requesting three Palm Avenue bungalows be designated historic resources.
Though the city's planning staff recommended the properties not recieve historic resource status, commissioners delayed voting on the nominations until next month for more time to consider the issue and allow additional public input.
The property owner seeks to demolish the homes and replace them with condominium buildings.
"The three homes individually and especially together present a cultural and historic integrity that is unique and powerful for West Hollywood, California, and the nation," said Katherine Eggert, who submitted the request with fellow Weho resident Kristin Gosney. "A really important point is that 927 and 931 Palm Avenue are eligible for the National Register according to the state of California."
The planning staff's analysis determined that alterations to some of the homes over the years and the lack of enough similar Craftsman style bungalows in the area to create a viable grouping negate historic status.
The Historic Preservation Commission is expected to vote on Eggert and Gosney's request at its Feb. 25 meeting.
