East San Gabriel Valley Area Plan


ESGVAP On October 6, 2015 the Board of Supervisors adopted the Los Angeles County General Plan 2035 which established a Planning Areas Framework that provides a mechanism to develop plans that respond to local communities’ unique and diverse character in unincorporated Los Angeles County. An area plan will be prepared or updated for each of the County’s eleven Planning Areas and will provide opportunities to update local planning tools such as community plans, specific plans and community standards districts. The East San Gabriel Valley Area Plan (Area Plan) will be the first area plan prepared under the Planning Area Framework.

The Area Plan project boundary encompasses three Supervisorial Districts, including the 1st, 4th, and 5th districts. The area within the project boundary is 210.55 square miles. There are 21 unincorporated communities and 13 cities within the project area. The unincorporated communities constitutes 51.59 square miles or 25% of the area. The Area Plan will establish land development goals, policies and implementation programs for the following unincorporated communities in East San Gabriel Valley:

5th District

  • Charter Oak
  • Covina Islands
  • East Irwindale
  • East San Dimas
  • Glendora Islands
  • Northeast La Verne
  • Northeast San Dimas
  • Walnut Islands
  • West Claremont
  • West San Dimas

4th District

  • Hacienda Heights
  • Rowland Heights

  • East Irwindale
  • North Claremont
  • North Pomona
  • South San Jose Hills

The Area Plan is a long term project that will take several years to complete. Project phases include research and data analysis; community outreach, workshops, and visioning; development of goals, policies and implementation actions; and preparation of the Area Plan and EIR.
