THE COMMUNITY STANDARDS DISTRICT (CSD)

The community of Pearblossom is establishing a new Community Standards District that will 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.

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.

The 2019 Pearblossom Concept Draft

The Pearblossom Concept Draft was developed in 2019 to articulate and clarify the intention of the community to establish a CSD. Together with feedback gathered from the Pearblossom CSD Committee working group, which met regularly from November 2021 to May 2022, the concept draft helped inform the Pearblossom CSD Draft which is now available for public comment. Once approved by the Board of Supervisors, the Pearblossom CSD Draft will become an ordinance within the Los Angeles County Zoning Code.

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

Background

The community of Pearblossom is located in the southeast 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.
