The release of the draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the Southeast LA New Community Plan has been delayed. Read all about it in the Planning Report's interview of the City Planning Department's Principal Planner, Ken Bernstein. Click here.
What's Been Done:
The New Community Plan (NCP) process began in 2007 with a land use survey of the Plan Area. This was followed by a series of Neighborhood Council and small group meetings held throughout Southeast Los Angeles to identify community concerns. (Issues & Opportunities Summary)
We then took this public input to create a concept of the NCP and had a second round of outreach to share what we learned from the community and explore potential implementation alternatives. The conceptual plan was then presented at two community-wide public workshops in October and November 2009 where we obtained additional community input. Two additional rounds of briefings with the Neighborhood Councils and interested organizations took place between August 2013 and April 2014.
