Palos Verdes Homes Association

The Palos Verdes Homes Association and Art Jury (est. 1923, CA non-profit corporation) operate separate and apart from the organizational structure of the City of Palos Verdes Estates.  They enforce the deed restrictions established in the early planning and development of the city. These restrictions determine the building setbacks within each lot as well as the type of architecture allowed.

The Art Jury, comprised of local architects and engineers, reviews all projects within Palos Verdes Estates to determine if the design meets the criteria set forth in the restrictions. Any project that modifies the exterior of a building (i.e. additional square footage, window/door changes, roof material change, paint color, etc.), or modifies the landscaping, requires Art Jury review and approval. This process is separate from any City approvals that may be required for a project.

Members of the Association, which holds its Annual Meeting the second Tuesday of January, include all who hold legal title of record to any building site in the city of Palos Verdes Estates and the original Miraleste area.

The Homes Association office is located on the east side of City Hall at 320 Palos Verdes Drive West. It is open Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The office is closed to the public on Tuesdays for plan reviews and site inspections. For further information, contact the Homes Association at (310) 373-6721.
