San Pedro Community Plan Planning Commission Meetings in San Pedro

We are pleased to announce that the proposed San Pedro Community Plan
is scheduled for formal consideration at City Planning Commission
(CPC) on Thursday, March 14, 2013. Planning staff will make a
presentation followed by public comment. Prior to CPC, the Plan will
also be presented at the Harbor Area Planning Commission on Tuesday,
March 5, 2013 for review and comment; this is an informational meeting
and no decision will be made. Both meetings will be held in San Pedro,
bringing the decision-making process closer to the community as many
community members have suggested over the years.

Improving the community’s quality of life is central to the Plan,
which has several major themes. These themes include expanding housing
opportunities, strengthening the community’s connection to the
waterfront, and preserving industrial areas for local jobs.
Sustainability goals and policies, such as creating more
pedestrian-friendly environments, improving access to open space, and
fostering a healthy community, are integrated throughout the Plan.

Based upon community input following the public hearing in December
2012, some changes have been made to the San Pedro Community Plan.
Among these is the commercial area located at 25th Street and Western
Avenue (subarea 260). The Planning Department has recommended
retaining the existing neighborhood commercial land use designation
and no change is proposed for zoning or height regulations. This
change underscores the importance of the community’s involvement in
the plan update process.

Community Plans provide a guide for future land use development. The
Community Plan Update process has been based on engaging the community
in making decisions regarding existing land use, neighborhood and
community issues, and recommendations for future land use changes. A
written recommendation report, which represents a multi-year effort
and dozens of community meetings and community feedback, will be
forwarded for consideration by the Mayor and City Council following
the CPC meeting.

Thank you for your continued interest in the San Pedro Community Plan update.

We are currently in the process of adding our updated documents to the
website. For more information about the Plan, go to:
