LA to Speed Up Community Plan Updates


LOS ANGELES - On Wednesday, the LA City Council voted to require regular updates of the city's community plans. As a result, the Department of City Planning will build a framework that accelerates updating the city's 35 community plans to once every six years. 

Community plans direct what can and cannot be built in neighborhoods and allow residents to weigh in on what they want their community to look like. Currently, the majority of the city's community plans have not been updated in more than 15 years.
