Document Description
The proposed FFTOD Specific Plan will implement the County General Plan 2035 (General Plan) TOD Program. TODs are defined in the General Plan as the area within a 0.5-mile radius of transit stations. In the Florence-Firestone community, three Metro A Line stations are present: the Slauson, Florence, and Firestone Stations. The goals of the FFTOD Specific Plan are to create transit-accessible housing development; increase job-generating uses and economic activity; develop a safe and attractive transportation network; increase walking, bicycling, and transit ridership; and streamline the environmental review process for future development projects in the community. The FFTOD Specific Plan will propose new zoning categories, primarily within the 0.5-mile TOD area of the three Metro A Line stations, that include development standards and design guidelines appropriate for meeting the planned density and intensity established by the General Plan Land Use Designations. The FFTOD Specific Plan proposes the following nine new zoning categories: Industrial Flex (IF), Mixed-Use 1 (MU-1), Mixed-Use 2 (MU-2), Mixed-Use 3 (MU-3), Mixed-Use Transit (MU-T), Residential Low-Medium 1 (RLM-1), Residential Low-Medium 2 (RLM-2), Residential Medium (RM) and Residential Slauson Station (RSS). These zoning category names/titles are subject to change to match LA County naming conventions as the FFTOD Specific Plan is further developed. New zoning category standards would also include setback and parking standards to address mobility issues in the community. The Project would also update zoning categories for sites identified for the Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) by the Housing Element update (HEU). In addition to establishing new zoning categories, the Project would amend and incorporate the standards of the Florence-Firestone Community Standards District (FFCSD) into the FFTOD Specific Plan. Incorporation of the FFCSD would allow all of the land use regulations applicable to the Florence-Firestone community to be provided within a single document for ease of review and implementation.
