Present Land Use
Citywide: Project parcels are currently designated either as Regional Commercial, General Commercial, Mixed-Use, Open Space/Parks, Industrial, Medium Density Residential, and High Density Residential in the City of Bell Gardens General Plan. Project parcels are currently zoned as Medium Density Residential (R-3), Single Family Residential (R-1), Light Manufacturing (M-1), Commercial Manufacturing (C-M), Commercial Service (C-S), Light Agriculture (A-1), Heavy Commercial (C-4), and Manufacturing Planned Development (M-PD).
Document Description
The project proposes updates and amendments to the City of Bell Gardens Zoning Map and General Plan Land Use Map. The updates and amendments are required to create consistency between the Zoning Map and the General Plan Land Use Map and to reflect previous General Plan Land Use designation changes on the Land Use map that have not yet been incorporated. The zoning amendments reflect both past zoning amendments that have occurred over time and others needed to implement the recently adopted City of Bell Gardens Housing Element 2021-2029. The updates and amendments would apply to 811 parcels in the City. In some cases, only a Zoning Map change is proposed (no General Plan Land Use Map change needed) or only a General Plan Land Use Map change is proposed. For other parcels, both a Zoning Map and General Plan Land Use Map changes are proposed. There are no specific development plans proposed for any of the parcels. The purpose of the project is to create consistency between the Zoning Map and the General Plan Land Use Map.
