Pearblossom

The Pearblossom CSD Purpose Statement

The purpose of the Pearblossom Community Standards District (CSD) is to improve the quality of life in Pearblossom by preserving, protecting, and enhancing its rural character and maintaining its unique identity that is small-town with a Modern Rustic aesthetic, which values the natural environment, and supports the artistic, creative, and resourceful spirit of the community.  

ONLINE SURVEY for all Pearblossom Residents

Regional Planning developed an online survey so any resident in Pearblossom can provide information on what is valued in the community and how development should happen in the future. The survey is 23 questions.

We encourage you to take the survey and encourage other residents to do the same. Here’s a promotional flyer with a link to the survey. Pass it on!

Una hoja Informativa con enlace de la encuesta está aquí.

This online survey will be open until Thursday, August 18, 2022. The results of the survey will be shared in late August on this same webpage.

A 16 Minute video on CSD basics

This 16 minute video explains what a Community Standards District (CSD) is, how it relates to the Zoning Code, how it can influence what can and cannot be built on private property, how the Los Angeles County Department of Regional Planning and other County departments use the CSD, what the costs and benefits are of having a CSD, and how communities can work together with Regional Planning to create CSDs that will preserve, support and enhance rural lifestyles. A printout of this presentation with notes is here. If you don’t have 16 minutes, here’s a CSD fact sheet that explains the basics.

2019 Pearblossom Concept Draft

A draft of the 2019 Pearblossom Concept Draft is available online. In response to community feedback, Regional Planning is updating this working draft in collaboration with Pearblossom’s CSD Committee. When the new 2022 CSD Ordinance Draft is ready, we will update the link on this webpage.

The purpose of the initial Concept Draft was to clarify and articulate the community’s intention in creating a CSD. The Concept Draft together with feedback through collaborative working meetings with the CSD Committee from November 2021 through May 2022 is the foundation from which the CSD Ordinance Draft is being developed. Once approved by the Board of Supervisors, the CSD Ordinance will then become part of the Los Angeles County Zoning Code.

Comments to the working draft may be submitted by:

  1. Completing an online Concept Draft Comments form, or
  2. Sending comments via email to Caroline Chen at cchen@planning.lacounty.gov, or
  3. Mailing a letter 320 W. Temple St. #1354, Los Angeles, CA 90012,  c/o Community Studies North.

A list of all AV CSD documents are available on the Documents and Reports page.

Community Standards District (CSD)

The community of Pearblossom is establishing a new Community Standards District that will preserve and protect its rural character and maintain its unique identity, as articulated in the Pearblossom CSD Purpose Statement at the top of this webpage.

Background

The community of Pearblossom is located in the southeastern portion of the Antelope Valley, along Pearblossom Highway between Littlerock and Llano.  Some portions of the community are developed with a wide range of uses and a distinctly rural character, while other portions are largely undeveloped, generally not served by existing infrastructure, and subject to safety hazards, such as Seismic Zones and Flood Zones.

A more detailed description of the Pearblossom community can be found in the Community-Specific Land Use Concepts chapter of the Antelope Valley Area Plan.
