Community Meetings will Collect Stakeholder Input for New Zoning Code

Submitted by lizfuller on Mon, 07/08/2013 - 12:35.

City Planning is kicking off its $5 million 5-year planning code revision journey by slowing down and listening – to you, to your community, to the people of Los Angeles. There are four listening sessions scheduled for this coming week, giving Angelenos an opportunity to talk about planning, land use, zoning and ideas for creating livable communities, encouraging sustainable development, and fostering economic vitality.

LA’s current zoning code is an unwieldy, 600+ page book that bears little resemblance to the 84-page pamphlet that was first adopted in 1946. Since then, life has gotten more complicated for those engaged in land-use conversations and now is LA’s big chance to change all of that by developing a modern and user-friendly code.

To participate in the listening sessions, visit one of these four events:

Tuesday, July 9
6 – 8 pm
San Fernando Valley Listening Session
Van Nuys City Hall – Council Chambers
14410 Sylvan Street, Second Floor

Perfect opportunity for summer: ca$h in your lawn!

For a limited time, the cash incentive to replace healthy, green grass with California Friendly® landscaping is up from $1.50 to $2 per square foot for residential customers. Commercial customers may receive $1 per square foot. In place of water-thirsty and high maintenance grass, L.A. residents are encouraged to install California Friendly® plants and other water-wise features to help save money while conserving water. More details available here.
