Housing Element Update

Program 2: General Plan Update

The Los Angeles County General Plan Update provides the policy framework for how and where the unincorporated areas will grow through the year 2035, while recognizing and celebrating the County’s wide diversity of cultures, abundant natural resources, and status as an international economic center. The General Plan Update accommodates new housing and jobs in anticipation of population growth in the unincorporated areas and the region.

The General Plan Update includes a number of land use changes and zones changes, but will continue to maintain an inventory of sites that meet the RHNA for the 2014-2021 planning period. See Appendix B for a preliminary analysis of the General Plan Update.

At the time of adoption of the General Plan Update, the County shall amend the Housing Element, as needed, to demonstrate the continued ability to accommodate the RHNA under the updated General Plan Land Use Element.

Objectives Maintain an inventory of sites and make it available to interested developers.
Policies Policy 1.1: Make available through land use planning and zoning an adequate sites inventory of vacant and underutilized sites to accommodate the County’s Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) allocation.
Policy 1.4: Assist housing developers to identify and consolidate suitable sites for developing housing for low and moderate income households and those with special needs.
