Current Phase:
The combined Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the South and Southeast Los Angeles Community Plan updates was published November 3, 2016.  There will be a 90 day comment period. Comments can be submitted until February 1, 2017 at 5:00 pm. 

What's Been Done:
The New Community Plan (NCP) process began in 2007 with a survey of the land use of the Plan Area. This was followed by a series of small group meetings held throughout South Los Angeles to identify community concerns. (See Issues & Opportunities Summary)

Using this public input, we created a concept of the NCP and had a second round of outreach to share what we learned from the community, and to explore potential implementation alternatives. This conceptual plan was presented at two community-wide public workshops in October and November of 2009 where we obtained additional community input. An additional round of briefings with area Neighborhood Councils and interested organizations took place in 2013/2014. More recent outreach included the following:
  • Office Hours: Present Proposed Plan and CPIO (November 14-19, 2016)
  • Open House & Public Hearings: Present Proposed Plan and CPIO and receive comments/testimony from the community (December 3 & 6, 2016)
Draft Plan documents are now available online at the Virtual Open House, and we welcome your comments:
  • Proposed SLA CPIO (implementation overlay district) - now available
  • Draft Community Plan - now available
  • Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) 
  • Matrix and Map with proposed zone and land use changes
  • Draft South Los Angeles Design Guidelines - now available
