Document Description
The South Los Angeles Community Plan (Community Plan) is one of 35 Community Plans, which comprise the Land Use Element of the General Plan of the City of Los Angeles and is intended to promote an arrangement of land uses, streets, and services in the South Los Angeles Community Plan Area (CPA) to encourage economic vitality, social and physical well-being, and general health, safety, welfare and convenience for the people who live and work in the CPA. The community Plan would establish strategies for accommodating the anticipated population, housing, and employment growth in the CPA by 2030 in a manner consistent with the vision of the community. The Community Plan will implement changes to zoning, amend land use plan designations, and establish overlay zones, as appropriate. Community Plan amendments would potentially change or refine designations and footnotes and make changes to other Citywide Elements, as necessary. In concert with the proposed Community Plan amendments, new zones may be necessary to maintain Community Plan consistency (implemented by ordinance) that would serve to regulate development standards such as: heights of structures, setbacks, lot coverage, density and intensity, open space, use of land, parking, and design. Overlay zones, districts, and other plans would additionally be established to regulate development that is consistent with the General Plan, enhance the unique character of neighborhoods, and accommodate growth within the South Los Angeles CPA. Areas of focused study will include, but may not be limited to, major north/south commercial and industrial corridors such as Western Avenue, Normandie Avenue, Vermont Avenue, Hoover Avenue, and Figueroa Street, and major east/west commercial corridors such as Pico Boulevard, Venice Boulevard, Washington Boulevard, Adams, Martin Luther King Boulevard, Jefferson Boulevard, Slauson Avenue, Manchester Avenue, and Florence Avenue and potential transit-oriented development areas located directly adjacent to the Metro Exposition Light Rail, currently under construction which runs in a east-west direction within the South Los Angeles CPA.
