The City of Los Angeles invites you to a Public Information Session concerning the Northeast Los Angeles Hillsides Zone Change described below. We invite you to attend if you have any questions regarding the August 14, 2008 recommendation of the City Planning Commission to
the Los Angeles City Council to adopt new hillside development regulations in the Northeast Los Angeles area. Staff will be available to answer questions one-on-one and give detailed
information regarding the Commission¢s action and next steps in the approval process.

The Commission¢s recommended zone change addresses issues such as the minimization of grading and soil erosion, protection of ridgelines and landforms, protection of plant life and wildlife, appropriate scales of development and adequate vehicular access for residents and
emergency vehicles in the Northeast Los Angeles hillside areas. The zone change would not affect the existing density or uses allowed on individual lots, but rather would add qualifying conditions to the zoning to require mitigation of environmental impacts and further restrict the size of new development.

These regulations would be applied to the existing zoning in the form of [Q] conditions and [D] limitations. Property owners who have no plans to build new construction will not be affected.
The Planning and Land Use Management (PLUM) Committee of the City Council is expected to discuss the recommendation of the City Planning Commission and may forward a recommendation to the full City Council at their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, November 18 at 2 pm. The PLUM Committee meets at the Board of Public Works Edward
R. Roybal Hearing Room 350, City Hall, 200 N. Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012.
