Preservation in Calabasas
the historic character of Calabasas has been a long-term goal of
the community. When it was proposed for demolition, residents of
Calabasas rallied around the preservation of the Leonis Adobe.
In 1994, the City of Calabasas adopted the Old Town Calabasas
Master Plan and Design Guidelines to preserve and enhance the
area around the Leonis Adobe, which is the heart of the
community. On January 2, 2008, the Calabasas City Council
adopted a Historic Preservation Ordinance with the purpose of
protecting cultural resources.
