SEA Program - Latest Updates

The SEA ordinance (Section 22.56.215, Chapter 22.104 effective February 28, 2019, Title 22 of the County Zoning Code) is intended to implement the General Plan SEA Program goals and policies. Now that the 2035 General Plan and SEA Program Policy Map have been adopted, the SEA ordinance is being updated to reflect these changes.

On July 12, 2017, the Regional Planning Commission heard a presentation on Draft 9 of the SEA Ordinance amendment. During this hearing, additional questions and concerns regarding the proposed regulations where raised. In response to these concerns, staff is currently working on changes to the ordinance as well as creating the draft implementation guide to better clarify the intent of the ordinance and the SEA review process.

The latest SEA Ordinance amendment (Draft 9), the most recent public hearing documents, and future public hearing documents can all be found within the SEA Program project webpage.

A continued public hearing on this matter has been scheduled before the Regional Planning Commission on November 8, 2017, at 9am. The hearing will be held at:

320 Temple Street, Room 150
Downtown Los Angeles
Hall of Records Building
