Zoning regulates land use, density, setbacks, parking, lot coverage and building size, thereby providing a means to implement the County’s General and Community Plans. The overall objectives of planning and zoning are to protect public health, safety and welfare, to promote compatibility between various land uses and developments and to promote an attractive and well-planned community. Zoning data is for unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County only. Created during the Zoning Map Conversion and Integration Project (ZCIP), last updated September 19, 2006 (ZCO 2006-073Z).

Land Use Policy

How communities use land within their boundaries is referred to as land use policy. Land use policy establishes the basic type and intensity of uses permitted by the General Plan for each land use category, including the overall maximum density for residential development and maximum intensity of development for commercial and industrial uses. Effective land use policy adapts to fast-changing environmental, social and economic conditions. The General Plan is the foundation for all the land uses that occur in the unincorporated County and provides the framework for how the County will plan for and address the numerous land use challenges it faces. The Land Use Element in the General Plan also utilizes short-term programs and long-term strategies to provide flexible and comprehensive guidelines for dealing with County land use decisions and future development scenarios.

Community Standards District (CSD)

The Community Standards Districts are established as supplemental districts to provide a means of implementing special development standards contained in adopted neighborhood, community, area, specific and local coastal plans within the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County or to provide a means of addressing special problems that are unique to certain geographic areas within the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County.
For detailed development standards for each CSD, please refer to the County Code 22.44 Part 2.

CSD Subarea

These are the boundaries for the Area Specific Standards within CSDs.

Employment Protection District (EPD)
Employment Protection Districts are economically-viable industrial and employment-rich lands, with policies to prevent the conversion of industrial land to non-industrial land. Please see the Economic Development Section of the General Plan 2035 for more information.
Transit Oriented District (TOD)

Transit Oriented Districts are established as supplemental districts in order to promote transit-oriented and pedestrian-oriented development, to increase transit use, to manage traffic congestion, and to improve air quality. To achieve these goals, transit oriented districts are established to create and apply unique development standards and case processing procedures to geographic areas within an approximately one-quarter to one-half mile radius around specific light rail transit stations in unincorporated areas. See Los Angeles County Code 22.44 Part 8.

Transit Lines
