Subject: Central City New Community Plan Status / Upcoming Planning Workshop on proposed Citywide Zoning Tools
Central City Stakeholders,
It has been awhile since many of you have heard from us, but I wanted let you know that the New Community Plan for Central City is still moving forward with the feedback that we received during our community outreach meetings in 2008. I was recently reassigned to work on the community plan update, along with Patricia Diefenderfer, who many of you already know. We have compiled the information you provided regarding land use issues and opportunities that should be addressed in Downtown Los Angeles, and will be posting a summary to our website in the next few weeks. Also, we are planning on holding another round of community meetings in the next couple of months, to discuss the issues we have heard thus far and to brainstorm potential community plan policies and solutions. We will be in touch in the next few weeks to let you know when the website has been updated and when we have scheduled the next round of meetings.
In the meantime, the City Planning Department would like to invite you to a citywide Public Workshop concerning proposed Zoning Code amendments to create 3 new Zoning tools, which are described in the attached flyer. The proposed tools are concerned primarily with creating opportunities to improve the City's commercial corridors. If the enabling language is adopted, the tools would not change any existing Zoning on parcels in the City at this time. Any future implementation or application of these tools to individual parcels would occur through the public community planning process.
The workshop will be held:
March 19, 2009, 5-7 PM
Los Angeles City Hall, Rm 1010
200 N. Spring Street, 90012
Please forward this message to any other interested parties, and I look forward to meeting with you in the coming months.
