After a four year hiatus, the City of Los Angeles held its first public meeting on the stalled Boyle Heights Community Plan  last week.
“If they feel their voice wasn’t heard earlier in the process, they can come back,” said Valentina Knox, one of the two city planners assigned to the Boyle Heights Community Plan update.
This past Wednesday, planners had a small focus group that reviewed the housing situation and stock in the neighborhood. The next focus groups are as follows:
City planners Haydee Urita-Lopez and Knox are holding these meetings to decide which parts of the research and input gathered in 2009 is still relevant for a master plan developed in 2009. The Boyle Heights Community Plan, the land use blueprint for the neighborhood, was last updated in 1998.
The January 30 meeting reviewed the community plan process with community leaders. The meeting, which went over various planning tools, was a crash course in planning with the planners talking about various zoning tools like overlays and inclusionary zoning.
