"Promoting a diverse community that embraces its history, 
fosters sustainable neighborhoods, and promotes economic viability for everyone."
[ South Los Angeles Draft Vision Statement ]

Welcome to the South Los Angeles New Community Plan! 
The Los Angeles Department of City Planning has partnered with the community to update the South Los Angeles (SLA) Community Plan, as part of the department's New Community Plan (NCP) 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 for all who live, work, visit and invest in this area. The Plan includes goals, policies and programs, as well as a Community Plan Implementation Overlay (CPIO) tool, to help achieve the community's vision.

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