Document Description
The City of Lomita is preparing a comprehensive update to its existing General Plan. The updated Lomita General Plan is expected to be adopted in 2024 and will guide the City’s development and conservation through land use objectives and policy guidance. The General Plan is intended to be an expression of the community’s vision for the City’s Planning Area and constitutes the policy and regulatory framework by which future development projects will be reviewed and public improvements will be implemented. The General Plan is being prepared to address the requirements of State law and the relevant items addressed in Government Code Section 65300 et seq. The City will implement the General Plan by requiring development, infrastructure improvements, and other projects to be consistent with its policies and by implementing the actions included in the General Plan. The City is also preparing a Zoning Code Update to implement the General Plan and create consistency between the Land Use Map and the Zoning Code. The Zoning Code Update will focus on amendments resulting from the City’s recently certified 2021-2029 Housing Element, and primarily involve the rezoning of sites to accommodate the City’s Regional Housing Needs Allocation (RHNA) and the preparation of Objective Design and Development Standards for residential development.
