Welcome to the Southeast Los Angeles New Community Plan!

The Los Angeles Department of City Planning has partnered with the community to update the Southeast Los Angeles (SELA) Community Plan, as part of the department's New Community Plan Program. The New Community Plan will shape the future of your community for the next 20 years, guiding future growth, protecting neighborhood character, creating new economic opportunity, and enhancing the quality of life in this area. The Plan will include goals, policies and programs, as well as a Community Plan Implementation Overlay (CPIO) tool, to achieve the community's vision. 

The top community issues addressed in the new Plan were identified through an extensive community outreach process and our Community Plan Advisory Committee (CPAC). 
  • Revitalization of the commercial corridors
  • Transit corridor and station area plans
  • Industrial-residential land use conflicts
  • Mixed-income and affordable housing
  • Proliferation of certain uses along the corridors
  • Incentives for desired uses
  • Protecting stable residential neighborhoods
