Leona Valley Community Standards District
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Los Angeles County (“County”) Department of Regional Planning is undertaking the process of updating the Leona Valley Community Standards District (Chapter 22.330 of the Los Angeles County Code) and associated amendment to the County General Plan Chapter 9 (Conservation and Natural Resources Element) Figure 9.8 “Hillside Management Areas and Ridgeline Map” to document significant ridgelines within the community. The proposed update to the Leona Valley Community Standards District (“CSD”) will standardize new subdivisions in rural areas; preserve the existing narrow road design without curbs, gutters, or sidewalks; create additional development standards for commercial businesses and signage; and encourage vegetation protections and trails as part of discretionary development projects, where appropriate. These policies are more environmentally protective and restrictive than what is currently allowed within the Zoning Code (Title 22). No construction activities or specific developments are proposed as part of this project.
