As a department of the City of Los Angeles, El Pueblo is a living museum that continues to fulfill its unique role as the historic and symbolic heart of the city, celebrating the Native American, African American, Spanish, Anglo, Mexican, Chinese, Italian and French cultures that contributed to its early history. El Pueblo is an important cultural and historical destination for those visiting Los Angeles, and it currently attracts over two million visitors a year from throughout the United States and from every continent in the world.


El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument promotes, safeguards, and preserves the City's birthplace and culturally diverse heritage through the effective management of its commercial and historical resources and events.


El Pueblo will be recognized as an iconic destination in Los Angeles and regarded as a top tier historical site that supports local culture and inspires repeat visitation.


The strategic plan was developed under the direction of the Board of Commissioners with input from the Olvera Street merchants, non-profit partners, and other community members, as a five-year rolling plan designed to guide El Pueblo's future development, while keeping in mind the needs of our tenants, local community, and other stakeholders. El Pueblo also recognizes that new ideas, developments, or initiatives may occur that warrant attention, but may not be included in this PDF iconStrategic Plan
