Join Us in Planning the Westside!
What do you love about your neighborhood, and what could be better? What’s your vision for the Westside– for your children and grandchildren? We’re planning the Westside, and we need your help!
The Department of City Planning has officially launched a three-year effort to update four Community Plans for the Westside region of the City of Los Angeles: 
  • Palms-Mar Vista-Del Rey
  • Venice
  • West Los Angeles
  • Westchester-Playa del Rey
A Community Plan is the blueprint that guides growth in our neighborhoods by establishing the community’s vision for the future, laying out policies, and designating land uses and zoning. To ensure that the Community Plans effectively guide current and future growth over the next two decades, it is necessary that they are re-evaluated and refreshed periodically.
We need your input! The process for updating Community Plans is a collaborative effort between community stakeholders and the Department of City Planning. Your voice is integral to this process.
Throughout, there will be many opportunities to comment on and shape your Community Plan. Please check our website regularly and sign up on our email list so that you're kept up-to-date! For more information on our outreach effort and how to get involved, click here.
We have initiated the update process, and are now meeting with the nine Neighborhood Councils located within the four Community Plan Areas to share information about the update program. During the Fall of 2018 we will conduct two Planning 101: Community Planning sessions (plus an online webinar) to explain what a community plan is, how it works, and why it matters to you and your community. Then, there will be four Kick-off Events in each Community Plan Area. Many more opportunities to participate and be heard will follow. We hope you’ll join us!
We look forward to working with you.
