Overview

Part of the Los Angeles County Zoning Ordinance, the East Los Angeles Community Standards District (CSD) is a set of supplemental zoning regulations developed especially for, and applicable only within, the unincorporated community of East Los Angeles. The CSD was established in 1988 to enhance the community appearance, promote property maintenance, and improve compatibility between land uses. The CSD is a tool to implement the adopted East Los Angeles Community Plan.


Proposed ELA Community Standards District

The proposed CSD update will clarify and introduce new regulations and standards for commercial development, such as new architectural, sign, landscaping and clarifying parking requirements. The update will amend the existing CSD regulations and associated map to reflect the East Los Angeles 3rd Street Specific Plan (Specific Plan) project. The Specific Plan will set forth standards and regulations for future development within the Specific Plan area only. Proposed CSD regulations will apply outside of the Specific Plan area. The proposed CSD regulations, environmental assessment and associated map are below.


Current ELA Community Standards District

The East Los Angeles CSD was adopted by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on May 29, 1988 and subsequent updates were made as shown in the table below. The current CSD regulations and associated map can be accessed below.
