Adoption of the Community Plan update is intended to implement changes to zoning, amend land use plan designations and establish the South Los Angeles Community Plan Implementation Ordinance (CPIO).

Land Use and Zoning: In concert with the proposed General Plan amendments (land use designation changes), new zones may be necessary to maintain Plan consistency. These zone changes would be implemented by ordinance and would serve to set the underlying parameters for development regarding height of structures, setbacks, density and intensity, open space, use of land, parking and design.

CPIO: The Community Plan Implementation Overlay, or CPIO, will additionally tailor development regulations in order to enhance the unique character of neighborhoods while accommodating growth at preferred locations, mainly transit-oriented development areas located adjacent to the Expo and Green Line Light Rail Transit Corridors, and along major bus routes.
