About Us

LA County Planning started with the founding of the Los Angeles County Regional Planning Commission in 1923. We provided staff advice and help to the Commission. In 1974, we became an independent County Department.

LA County Planning is the planning department for all areas outside a city in LA County. We provide all major planning functions for these unincorporated areas. We help write long range plans, review development projects, and respond to zoning complaints.

Strategic Plan

Our 2023 Strategic Plan for Equity emphasizes diversity, equity, and inclusion. The Strategic Plan reflects the Board’s anti-racism, diversity, and inclusion (ARDI) initiative. It also recognizes that our work needs to address our society’s systemic challenges. We understand that embedding equity into everything we do – including how we work together and what projects we work on – is critical in creating a more equitable LA County.
