Current Phase:
At their 11/22/2017 meeting, City Council voted to adopt the South Los Angeles Community Plan.

Next Steps: 
City Council has instructed the City Attorney to review the CPIO ordinance for form and legality.  When that review is complete, the ordinance will return to PLUM (Council's Planning and Land Use Management Committee) and then full City Council for adoption.  Please check back for updates.

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 and adoption milestones include the following:
  • Office Hours: Presented Proposed Plan and CPIO (November 14-19, 2016)
  • Open House & Public Hearings: Presented Proposed Plan and CPIO and received comments/testimony from the community (December 3 & 6, 2016)
  • Area Planning Commission: June 6, 2017
  • City Planning Commission: June 22, 2017
  • PLUM: November 21, 2017
  • City Council (Plan Adoption): November 22, 2017
Draft Plan documents presented at the December 2016 open house are available online at the Virtual Open House.
