These documents are being prepared by Los Angeles City Planning as part of the Plan to House LA. The review and response period for the NOP is from January 13, 2021 through February 15, 2021. The proposed Housing Element Update establishes programs, policies and actions to further the goal of meeting the existing and projected housing needs of all income levels of the community, provides evidence of the City’s ability to accommodate the Regional Housing Needs Assessment allocation through the year 2029, and identifies any rezoning program needed to reach the required housing capacity. See the Housing Element NOP and Initial Study online at the Planning website. Written responses to the NOP must be provided during this response period.
