Culver City to Begin Historical Context Study – Input Needed

Culver City is developing a Historical Context Study to better understand how past policy practices of the City and surrounding areas have shaped the City’s current landscape and experience of its inhabitants.

On June 14, 2021, the City Council expressed a commitment to making Culver City a welcoming and inclusive community by voting to adopt Resolution No. 2021-R066, acknowledging the racial history of Culver City. On January 23, 2023, the City Council approved a professional services agreement with Architectural Resources Group (ARG) to prepare a historical context study for Culver City.

As a part of this project, the City is seeking public input about past and current experiences of discrimination while living and working in Culver City.

Examples of such experiences could include (but not limited to):
Knowledge of past discrimination perpetuated against groups and individuals living and/or working in Culver City.
Lived experiences living or working in Culver City as a BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) individual in the past or the present.
Experiences with discrimination while living or working in Culver City.
To better understand the impact that any discriminatory practices have had on Culver City inhabitants, the City’s consultants – Architectural Resource Group (ARG) – are interested in hearing from current and former residents, business owners, stakeholders, and others with personal knowledge of the community. The personal stories will help tell the full story of discrimination in Culver City by ensuring that multiple experiences and perspectives are reflected in the document. Information received by the team may be incorporated into the document or may be used as starting points for additional research and follow-up. Please note that no personal identifying information will be included in the Study. Respondents are encouraged to make submissions on the Public Comment form by September 2023.
