Creating a Shared Vision for the Future of Our City

OurLA2040 is a collaborative and public-driven effort to update six elements of the City’s General Plan. The City of LA General Plan provides our City’s long-range vision, while guiding everyday decisions that affect the lives of all Angelenos through the year 2040.

The Department of City Planning is responsible for preparing, maintaining, and implementing a General Plan that guides the development of our City.

9 citywide elements plus 35 local community plans equals the General Plan for Los Angeles through the year 2040. The elements establish a citywide vision and set of policies, whereas each local community plan sets complementary local policies unique to each of our City’s communities.
