Download Excerpt/Summary

The La Vina Specific Plan allows for a maximum of 272 dwelling units and a school/recreational area on approximately 220 acres located within the community of Altadena in Los Angeles County, California.

The adoption of the Specific Plan establishes the type, location, intensity and character of development and the required infrastructure in order for development to take place. The Specific Plan also shapes development to respond to the physical constraints and environmental sensitivities of the site, coordinates the mix of residential density and product types and provides adequate circulation, recreation and other public uses.

Responsible planning of the La Vina development has been ensured through the adoption of a development control mechanism that reflects thorough and comprehensive land use planning. A suitable development control mechanism is the Specific Plan, which when adopted by a jurisdiction serves both a planning function and a regulatory function.

The Specific Plan implements the General Plan/Community Plan and is a more detailed version of the General Plan for a focused area. The Specific Plan articulates planning considerations and imposes regulations or controls
