Los Angeles County Title 22 Art Ordinances



Public Hearings at Regional Planning Commission are scheduled for August 1, 2018 at 9 a.m. for both Mural Ordinance and Percent for Art in Private Development Ordinance.

Regional Planning Commission Agenda for August 01, 2018

Mural Ordinance

On January 10, 2017, the Board of Supervisors instructed the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, in collaboration with the Departments of Public Works and Regional Planning, to draft a countywide Mural Ordinance that would provide opportunities for artistic expression, increase community cultural assets, and foster a sense of neighborhood pride, and to develop guidelines for murals to ensure compatibility with the built environment and to deter vandalism.

The ordinance establishes a voluntary program for property owners and mural artists to protect their properties and artworks by entering into agreements for timely maintenance against wear and graffiti. The ordinance also provides for a mural registry to be established and maintained by the Arts Commission.

The ordinance will be part of Title 22 – Planning and Zoning – of the County Code, and, the Arts Commission will be administering the program.

Percent for Art in Private Development Ordinance

On March 14, 2017 The Board of Supervisors directed the Chief Executive Office and the Arts Commission to work with the Departments of Public Works and Regional Planning to develop an ordinance establishing a civit art funding program for private development. Civic art through private development is intended to boost the local economy with arts-related jobs and cultural tourism, to foster community engagement, and to enhance the quality of life for County residents. Currently, 32 municipalities throughout Los Angeles County have already enacted similar ordinances to provide more civic art within their jurisdictions.

The Percent for Art in Private Development Ordinance allocates one percent of project costs from eligible commercial and industrial developments to fund civic art in several ways. When eligible projects go through the entitlement process, if the building valuation meets the threshold established by the ordinance, the project will be referred to the Arts Commission for a consultation on options to provide or to support civic art, before a building permit is issued. The ordinance specifies which projects are eligible for referral. An overview of the ordinance is provided here.

As this ordinance is a land use fee requirement, it will go into Title 22 – Planning and Zoning – of the County Code, and, the Arts Commission will be administering the program. Applications for eligible development projects submitted to Regional Planning or Building & Safety may be referred to the Arts Commission.
