General Information on the New Community Plan Program (NCP)

Along with the 35 Community Plans that make up the Land Use Element, the City’s General Plan
includes six other state-mandated Elements that include Noise, Transportation, and Conservation among others.

The Department of City Planning is in the process of updating several Community Plans throughout the city as part of its NCP Program, including the Southeast Los Angeles Community Plan (last updated in 2000).

The New Community Plan will not only revisit the goals and policies for the area, but will also establish the Community Plan Implementation Overlay (CPIO) that will address the various land use issues in the community and provide regulations tailored to the specific needs of each area.

 

PURPOSE OF NCP PROGRAM:

(1) reflect preferred future growth patterns
(2) encourage wise growth
(3) identify appropriate locations for new development 
(4) address prevailing neighborhood and community issues  
(5) protect neighborhood character
