Please voice your support for protecting the historically significant Alpine Village, located in unincorporated Los Angeles County, as a County landmark!

Alpine Village has been a popular gathering place for sharing German cultural traditions, family connections and milestones; and the home of Oktoberfest in Los Angeles County for over half a century. Since 1968, the Bavarian-themed shopping court with its chalet-style facades, has played a significant role in the celebration and promotion of German-American cultural heritage with its European shops, chapel, restaurant, dance hall, specialty market and deli.

Recent news suggests that Alpine Village is threatened with demolition. Alpine Village is not currently designated a County landmark and is therefore not protected from demolition or inappropriate alterations. Los Angeles County’s Historical Landmarks and Records Commission (“Landmarks Commission”) has the ability to nominate Alpine Village as a County landmark, which will initiate the designation process. However, they need to hear from us about why it is important that they nominate the property and why its worthy of designation.

Please sign this petition requesting that the Landmarks Commission nominate the property as County landmark because the property is likely threatened by demolition, and because it meets the criteria for designation due to its long-standing history with the local German-American community and because it is an excellent example of the themed shopping court property type. Additionally, please let the Landmarks Commission know why protecting the property is important to you by sharing your fond memories of Alpine Village.
