EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Cornfield Arroyo Seco Specific Plan
Document Description
The Proposed Project is an update of the existing CASP. The update includes new land use and zoning regulations, incentives, and boundaries, for the purpose of encouraging affordable, mixed-income, and permanent supportive housing production. The Proposed Project would strengthen the existing CASP’s affordable housing requirements, including the recalibration of the CASP’s existing incentive zoning system; establish a new Community Benefits Program that incentivizes new publicly-accessible open space and community facilities; include provisions that facilitate the production of new 100% affordable housing and permanent supportive housing projects on public land; increase the zoning capacity for housing in targeted areas; and adopt a modernized zoning system based on the City’s new modular Zoning Code. The Proposed Project would supersede the text, maps, and tables of the existing CASP, and will include the adoption of necessary revisions and any other amendments necessary to implement this update, including amendments to General Plan elements (such as the Framework Element), community plans, the Los Angeles Municipal Code (LAMC) Chapter 1 and Chapter 1A, specific plans, and other City ordinances.
