Rowland Heights Community Standards District Amendment: Living Suites - Home
A living suite is a portion of a residence that includes a living room, kitchen, bathroom, and one or more bedrooms. A living suite includes an interior connection, typically a door, to the remainder of the residence and may also have a separate exterior entrance.
On September 29, 2015, the Board of Supervisors indicated their intent to approve the Living Suites Ordinance (Ordinance). The Ordinance allows the development of living suites throughout the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County in new planned communities in the Residential Planned Development (RPD) Zone. Establishment of living suites within a new planned community requires approval of a conditional use permit (CUP).
Residents of Rowland Heights raised concerns at the Board meeting that living suites may not be appropriate for their community as they could potentially be inconsistent with the character of their community.
Based on information gathered through community outreach and statistical research, living suites are not consistent with the Rowland Heights Community General Plan (Community Plan) or community character, and therefore the Draft Ordinance proposes to prohibit living suites throughout the unincorporated community of Rowland Heights by amending the Rowland Heights Community Standards District (CSD).
On March 23, 2016, the Regional Planning Commission (Commission) conducted a public hearing on an amendment to the Rowland Heights CSD to prohibit living suites throughout the community. The Commission voted to recommend that the Board of Supervisors conduct a public hearing to consider and adopt the proposed ordinance.
The Board of Supervisors will conduct a public hearing on the proposed ordinance on August 23, 2016.
