The West Adams-Baldwin Hills-Leimert New Community Plan is organized into six chapters. Each chapter is further organized into sections that address specific topics described below:

Introduction and Orientation - Chapter 1 describes how to use the Community Plan by providing a reader’s guide for understanding the Plan and reviewing its relationship to the City’s General Plan as well as plans developed by other City agencies.

Community Background - Chapter 2 provides a detailed description of the historical development of the community by describing  its relationship to adjoining communities, its environmental setting, its existing land uses as well as identifying population, employment, housing trends and other projections.

Land Use and Urban Design - Chapter 3 expresses the community’s vision for the future.  In particular, this chapter describes the community’s land uses and specifies goals and policies that address residential, commercial, and industrial development. It further outlines implementation strategies and programs relative to commercial revitalization, health and sustainability as well as historic preservation and the conservation of neighborhood character.
