Community Outreach Process
The South Los Angeles New Community Plan program has included an extensive community outreach component in order to identify and address prevailing community issues. Recommended changes to the South Los Angeles Plan and its policies and programs are based on continued public input and collaboration with other city departments and governmental agencies. Since 2007, numerous public meetings have been held to identify key issues, and there are more meetings to come as the Plan moves toward final adoption. 

The Department launched a comprehensive public outreach program for the South LA NCP in 2007, and has continued throughout the adoption process, including two official Public Hearings conducted by Hearing Officers at venues in the community, a presentation before the South LA Area Planning Commission, and a Public Hearing at the City Planning Commission.  There will also be a Public Hearing at the Planning and Land Use Management Committee meeting of the City Council, which will lead to a final hearing before the City Council.

To date, we have conducted Several Phases of Public Outreach which included over 100 meetings with neighborhood councils, residential block groups, faith-based institutions, CRA Community Advisory Committees, community-based organizations, affordable housing advocates and developers, focus groups with South LA residents, business owners and other stakeholders. Planning staff meets continually with other City Departments and Agencies, as well as with the designated council offices the represent portions of the South LA Plan area, including Council District 1, 8, 9, 10, and 15. As part of the tailored extensive public outreach plan for the South LA NCP, a Community Plan Advisory Committee was also established.
