Exciting Things are happening in La Crescenta-Montrose!


Part of the Los Angeles County Zoning Ordinance, the La Crescenta-Montrose Community Standards District (CSD) is a set of supplemental zoning regulations developed especially for, and applicable only within, the unincorporated community of La Crescenta-Montrose. The CSD is a tool to implement the adopted General Plan. The CSD project consists of three components, the draft CSD Ordinance, Revised CSD maps and the environmental analysis.

NO zone changes are proposed as part of this update.

Proposed CSD Ordinance

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 La Crescenta-Montrose CSD project. The CSD will set forth standards and regulations for future development within the CSD boundary areas only. The proposed CSD regulations, environmental assessment and associated map are below. The CSD Update will only apply to all R-3 zoned properties and the commercial zoned properties along Foothill Boulevard as shown on the Foothill Boulevard Specific Area Map.

Existing CSD Ordinance

The La Crescenta-Montrose CSD was adopted by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors in 2009. The current CSD regulations and associated map are available below.
