Boyle Heights Community Planning Meetings

The Los Angeles Planning Department is excited to invite you to participate in the Boyle Heights Community Plan Workshops.

As you may recall,
over the past year the Planning Department has conducted small group
meetings with a wide range of stakeholders to assess land use issues,
challenges and opportunities in Boyle Heights in relation to Housing,
Open Space, Commercial and Industrial Development, Mobility, Urban Design, and Public Facilities and Infrastructure. Based
on input from the community along with Department research and
analysis, preliminary draft recommendations for the Boyle Heights
Community Plan are being developed.

The purpose of the Workshops is to share these initial preliminary recommendations with you and to seek your input on them. Each of the four Workshops will consist of the same materials/information and will have an open house format. You may wish to participate in all four Workshops and you are welcome to attend at any point during the time periods indicated.

The Workshop Schedule is listed below. You will also find this information (along with background materials) online at: http://bheightsncp.googlepages.com/home and in Spanish at: http://bheightsncp.googlepages.com/plancomunitariodeboyleheights.

City and Residents Debate Fate of Lot at 1st and Boyle

“Dots are not a very democratic way to do things.” If there was a message Boyle Heights residents wanted to send to the city regarding their community outreach process last night, that seemed to be it. They were referring to the colored stickers planners often ask residents to use to signal their planning priorities. In […]
