DTLA 2040 Community Plan Update – Draft EIR Comment Period Extended

UPDATE – September 22, 2020: City Planning announced that the comment period for the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) has been extended to December 4, 2020 at 5 p.m.

The DTLA 2040 Community Plan affects most of the areas served by HCNNC including Chinatown, Victor Heights, El Pueblo, and portions of Solano Canyon.

On August 6, Los Angeles City Planning shared an updated Draft Downtown Community Plan text, updated draft zoning map, the full Preliminary Draft of the new Zoning Code, and the Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR). These updates follow the drafts of the zoning districts proposed for Downtown that were provided to the public in October 2019 for initial review.

These drafts address the built environment and allowed uses throughout Downtown. The new material provides the technical rules and functions needed to establish a new Zoning Code. City Planning anticipates making further refinements to the Draft Downtown Plan and Preliminary Draft of the New Zoning Code. Updated draft documents will be shared with the public in advance of the public hearing in the coming months.
