DTLA 2040 Update – CPC Hearing on August 26, 2021


City Planning Commission (CPC) held a hearing on the DTLA 2040 Community Plan on June 17, 2021. In case you missed it, an audio recording is now available along with City Planning’s staff presentation and Staff Report, as well as comment letters from the public and elected officials.

What happened at City Planning Commission?

At the June 17, 2021 CPC meeting, City Planning presented a high-level overview of the Downtown Community Plan and new Zoning Code. This was followed by technical questions from Commissioners on the information presented. After that, Commissioners heard public comment. Lastly, before adjourning, Commissioners discussed topics for further discussion and specific requests for additional information from Planning staff.

No formal action was taken by CPC at that time. CPC voted to reconvene a second meeting to continue the proceedings due to the day’s time constraints.

What happens next?

A second CPC meeting is scheduled for August 26, 2021, where CPC will continue its deliberation over the Downtown Community Plan and new Zoning Code.

After a recommendation by CPC, staff will prepare a Final Environmental Impact Report, and the Downtown Community Plan and new Zoning Code will be brought before the Planning & Land Use Management (PLUM) committee of City Council, followed by full City Council, for adoption.

Is there still time to provide comments?

Additional comments from the public for consideration by the City Planning Commission may be submitted by email to cpc@lacity.org now and leading up to the second CPC meeting date on August 26, 2021. Details on protocols for submissions within the two weeks leading up to this date will be included on the agenda for this meeting once it is published.
