Public Meetings on Development Review Process Reform

Dear AIA|LA POC - in addition to the three meetings that LADBS is scheduling to conduct professional outreach with regards to Development Reform, the Department of City Planning is also coordinating four sessions in early February.  I am forwarding this to you in case you have interest in attending.

For info on the LADBS' sessions:  CLICK HERE.


Dear Community Stakeholder:

The City of Los Angeles is committed to reforming the City's Development Review Process. Once the Department
of City Planning has determined that a homeowner's remodeling project or a developer's complex complies with
the City's General Plan, many complain that the design, permitting, and review processes are cumbersome.
Therefore, the goals of the reform effort are to reduce processing times, increase transparency, and make the
process easier to understand for all stakeholders. The City has engaged KH Consulting Group (KH) to assist in the
reform effort. As an important part of the reform process, we need to hear from our external stakeholders. We are
therefore inviting key community leaders to provide us with input on what improvements are needed in moving
forward versus rehashing the problems of the past.

The four following forums will be held specifically for the community:
