Next SLAANC Meeting – October 18th – Discuss Community Plan Updates

One of the major reasons communities in South LA suffer with an overabundance of liquor stores, recycling centers and other nuisance related properties and not enough of the services and resources the community needs – has been the lack of effective land use standards and guidelines. The City is divided into 35 community planning areas and is required to update the individual community plans periodically. The plans for the three South LA areas (West Adams/Baldwin Hills, South and Southeast Community Plan areas) have not been updated in over a decade. After several years of research, community input and technical study, the City of Los Angeles Planning Department has released a draft plan and prepared an Environmental Impact Review for the West Adams/ Baldwin community plan area.
The public comment period was recently extended an additional 15 days to November 13th. The implementing ordinances are expected within the next two weeks. The West Area plan will serve as a template and foundation for what is included in the South and Southeast community plans. It is critical that we examine the EIR and proposed ordinance and be prepared to comment on its content and any revisions needed.The next meeting of SLAANC will therefore be dedicated to a review of the study by the City Planning Department with a critique by Community Health Councils. Please invite your planning and land use committee members to attend this important meeting and working session as we develop recommendations to share with our respective neighborhood councils:
