West San Gabriel Valley
Area Plan

The West San Gabriel Valley Area Plan is a long-range policy document that will guide long-term growth of the area through development of a guiding vision, goals, policies, and implementation actions for the unincorporated communities in the West San Gabriel Valley. It will support principles such as walkability, connectivity, and community vibrancy. This project will include a comprehensive land-use analysis of the unincorporated areas. Additionally, development of the Plan involves consistent outreach and collaboration with stakeholders. These stakeholders include community residents, local businesses, community-based organizations, external public agencies, surrounding jurisdictions, and other County departments.
