CURRENT ISSUES AFFECTING OUR NEIGHBORHOOD:
The Los Angeles Department of City Planning is embarking on one of the City’s largest planning initiatives to date: re:code LA, a comprehensive revision of L.A.’s outdated zoning code. First adopted in 1946, the current Code has grown from a simple 84-page pamphlet to an unwieldy 600+ page book that inadequately realizes a 21st Century vision of a better Los Angeles for all residents.

Neighborhood Integrity Initiative (in both English and Spanish)
WHAT IS REDISTRICTING AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR OUR NEIGHBORHOOD?
The Los Angeles City Charter requires that at least once every 10 years a 21-member Redistricting Committee must review the 15 Council District boundaries and make recommendations on these boundaries. The City holds public meetings to receive input from the public, and proposed maps for the districts are made public before a final decision is reached. Although the boundaries of our Fourth District (our current Councilmember is David Ryu) may change, this neighborhood will remain in Councilmember Ryu’s district. At this time there is no proposed change for our community.
