Compact Lot Subdivision Ordinance
Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration

Document Description
The proposed project is an ordinance amendment to the Los Angeles County Code, Title 21 (Subdivisions) and Title 22 (Planning and Zoning), to allow the creation of smaller feesimple, single-family residential lots in multi-family residential zones (Zones R-2, R-3, and R-4). The single-family residential lots, or compact lots, created through the ordinance amendment will be less than the typical minimum area of 5,000 square feet and minimum lot width of 50 feet. No more than eight cumulative compact lots will be allowed to be created on a parcel. The goal of the ordinance amendment is to create opportunities for affordable homeownership, and to promote urban infill development, a diversity of housing types, and neighborhood stability in the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County. See NOC for full details.
