CALL TO ACTION: PLUM Committee of the City Council to review BMO/BHO Code Amendment on January 18th, 3:30 PM


On Wednesday, January 18, 2017, the Planning and Land Use Management (PLUM) Committee of the City Council will review the Baseline Mansionization/Baseline Hillside Ordinance Code Amendment (CF 14-0656) and the R1 Variation Zones Code Amendment (CF 16-1460).

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m. in the John Ferraro Council Chamber (Room 340) of Los Angeles City Hall, 200 N Spring St, Los Angeles, CA 90012.

The agenda will be posted shortly at the following link:

The BMO/BHO Code Amendment is returning to the PLUM Committee after having been reviewed as to form and legality by the City Attorney. The PLUM Committee will be considering whether to recommend it to the full City Council for final adoption. The ordinance may be viewed here:

R1 Variation Zones:

The PLUM Committee is considering the R1 Variation Zones Code Amendment for the first time and will be considering its recommendation report to the City Council. The Code Amendment has not yet gone through City Attorney review. At this meeting, the PLUM Committee is only reviewing adding the R1 Variation Zones into the Zoning Code, NOT the application of the zones to specific properties. Zone changes that will apply the R1 Variation Zones to a number of neighborhoods will be reviewed at a future PLUM Committee meeting.

The Director of Planning has transmitted a letter to the PLUM Committee with a corrected version of the R1 Variation Zones Code Amendment ordinance that renames some of the zones. We are currently waiting for the City Clerk to place the letter and corrected ordinance in the Council File. When these documents are posted, they will appear here:
