San Pedro Community Plan Open House and Public Hearing: December 12th

The Los Angeles Department of City Planning will hold an Open
House/Public Hearing regarding proposed Zone Changes and Plan
Amendments to the San Pedro Community Plan, in accordance with the Los
Angeles City Charter. The existing San Pedro Community Plan was
adopted in 1999 and is being updated to reflect current policies,
practices, and conditions. The proposed Zone Changes and Plan
Amendments are initiated by the City of Los Angeles and involve
private and publicly owned land. The official hearing notice is
attached, and contains a map of areas that are proposed for change.

Date: Wednesday, December 12, 2012
Time: Open House 5:00pm – 6:30pm, Public Hearing 6:30pm – 8:00pm
Location: Boys and Girls Club, 100 W. 5th Street, San Pedro, CA 90731
Staff Contact: Debbie Lawrence, Department of City Planning,
debbie.lawrence@lacity.org; (213) 978-1163

The Proposed Plan would preserve the character of existing
single-family and lower density neighborhoods by maintaining lower
density land use designations and limiting the allowed residential
density of some neighborhood commercial areas. The Proposed Plan seeks
to direct growth away from existing residential neighborhoods by
focusing growth in higher-intensity commercial centers, including
emphasis of the downtown as San Pedro’s regional center with increased
residential and commercial activity. Proposed land use changes would
be implemented by Plan amendments, zone changes, height district
changes and other long range implementation programs. The purpose of
the hearing is to obtain testimony from affected and/or interested
persons regarding the proposed changes. The decision maker will
consider all the testimony presented at the hearing, written
communication received prior to or at the hearing, and the merits of
the proposed changes as they relate to existing environmental and land
use policy and regulations.

Please contact me at the e-mail address or phone number below if you
have any questions. Documents related to the San Pedro Community Plan
update are available at the website address:

We look forward to seeing you at the open house and public hearing.
During the open house portion of the event you will be able to ask
questions and find out more information about the proposed changes to
the plan. During the public hearing portion, you can comment on the
recommendations and provide official testimony.

Debbie Lawrence, San Pedro Community Planner
