East Los Angeles Community Plan Update
For more information regarding the draft East Los Angeles 3rd Street Specific Plan, please contact Community Studies East at (213) 974-6425 from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm, Monday through Thursday. Our offices are closed on Fridays.
The East Los Angeles 3rd Specific Plan will guide and foster transit-supportive development around the Metro Gold Line stations, as well as stabilize and enhance the adjoining residential neighborhoods. This Plan is the product of the collective efforts and input of the East Los Angeles Planning Advisory Committee (ELAPAC), county staff, neighborhood residents, and business and property owners. The Plan will build upon the substantial public investment and transformative opportunity created by the Gold Line extension into East Los Angeles. New development standards and strategies will be implemented to encourage and support a sustainable, transit-supportive, pedestrian-friendly, and economically vibrant community.
The Specific Plan is the first step (Phase I) of a comprehensive update to the 1988 East Los Angeles Community Plan. Phase II will focus on a plan update for the remainder of the community.
