Baseline Hillside Ordinance continued to May 13, 2010 City Planning Commission Meeting

The City Planning Commission received a lot of useful comments yesterday and has decided to continue the discussion at their Thursday, May 13, 2010 meeting.  The meeting is scheduled to start at 8:30 AM and will be located at:


City Hall, 10th Floor
200 N. Spring St.
Los Angeles, CA 90012


They have asked Planning staff to return with more information on the comparison of regulations of the other jurisdictions, as well as suggestions for possible changes to the guaranteed minimums, language dealing with minor additions, and to look into the issue of flat roof a little more.  The Commission also requested a possible approach to addressing the issues of ridgeline protection and retaining walls as a separate action.  The Commission also requested staff to look into the possibility of developing a user-friendly Single-Family Zone Manual that simplifies the existing regulations (including those established by the Baseline Mansionization Ordinance) and the Baseline Hillside Ordinance as a follow-up project.
