City Planning: Zoning Workshops Near Expo Stations

Dear West Los Angeles and Expo Line Stakeholders,

You are receiving this email because you have expressed interest in the Exposition Corridor Transit Neighborhood Plan Project or the West LA Community Plan Update.

The Los Angeles Department of City Planning would like to invite you to attend our upcoming workshop for the Exposition Corridor Transit Neighborhood Plan. The project, which kicked off last June, is focused on adopting new development regulations around existing and future Expo Line stations that will better support vibrant, pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods.

The purpose of the upcoming workshop is to provide an opportunity for the public to give feedback on preliminary concepts for development regulations and streetscape plans that encourage an appropriate mix of jobs, housing, retail and amenities around the stations. The plans will focus on land use goals and strategies, building size and design, public amenities, streetscape elements, and pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular circulation. More information can be found on our project website:
