Community Outreach

The Department of City Planning's New Community Plan Program for the Southeast Los Angeles (SELA) area is a collaborative effort between residents, stakeholders and the business and development community. Extensive outreach within the Plan Area took place from 2007 to date. The program's community engagement included meetings with:
  • Neighborhood Councils
  • Focus Group meetings with residents and business owners throughout SELA
  • CRA Community Advisory Committees
  • Community-based Organizations
  • Faith-based Organizations
  • Council Offices
  • Other City Departments (CRA/LA, LADOT, LAUSD, Recreation and Parks, HACLA)
The Southeast Los Angeles Community Plan Advisory Committee (CPAC) is a group of representatives from SELA neighborhoods that was established in 2008 to review and advise the Planning Department throughout the New Community Plan process. CPAC members were appointed by the designated Council Offices in SELA.
