Crafting a new vision for a diverse city of over four million people – one that spans nearly 470 miles – is an enormously complex task. The Department of City Planning, which is spearheading the plan, must conduct research and analysis, analyze data on current and future trends, incorporate specialized expertise from multiple disciplines, prepare environmental analysis, and craft policy proposals. Just as importantly, it is essential to build ongoing public consensus to ensure that the plan reflects the concerns and aspirations of community members. To achieve these objectives, the OurLA2040 team will be posting information about the plan development process and opportunities to get involved.
A series of Community Conversations will be taking place throughout the City in a neighborhood near you! This is an opportunity to share your perspective on the topics included in the General Plan update. The first phase of this series will take place in the month of October, focusing on the topics of Open Space and Community + Culture.
