Northeast Los Angeles Hillsides Zone Change Public Information Session

1:55 PM PST on November 11, 2008

City of Los Angeles invites you to a Public Information Session
concerning the Northeast Los Angeles Hillsides Zone Change described
below. We invite you to attend if you have any questions regarding the
August 14, 2008 recommendation of the City Planning Commission to the
Los Angeles City Council to adopt new hillside development regulations
in the Northeast Los Angeles area. Staff will be available to answer
questions one-on-one and give detailed information regarding the
Commission's action and next steps in the approval process.

The Commission's
recommended zone change addresses issues such as the minimization of
grading and soil erosion, protection of ridgelines and landforms,
protection of plant life and wildlife, appropriate scales of
development and adequate vehicular access for residents and emergency
vehicles in the Northeast Los Angeles hillside areas. The zone change
would not affect the existing density or uses allowed on individual
lots, but rather would add qualifying conditions to the zoning to
require mitigation of environmental impacts and further restrict the
size of new development.

These regulations
would be applied to the existing zoning in the form of [Q] conditions
and [D] limitations. Property owners who have no plans to build new
construction will not be affected.  The Planning and Land
Use Management (PLUM) Committee of the City Council is expected to
discuss the recommendation of the City Planning Commission and may
forward a recommendation to the full City Council at their regularly
scheduled meeting on Tuesday, November 18 at 2 pm. The PLUM Committee
meets at the Board of Public Works Edward R. Roybal Hearing Room 350,
City Hall, 200 N. Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012.  For more information, please contact:
Gabriela Juarez City Planning Department, 200 N. Spring St., Rm. 667
Los Angeles, CA 90012 (213) 978-1222
