**City Planning Behind Closed Doors!    

 * Since February, the City has been working, behind closed doors, on the General   Plan, for the vision and future of Los Angeles. Mayor Garcetti has said, “residents must have a sense of ownership over the development of our communities”.

* Councilmember Huizar, Chair of PLUM, pledged that City Hall will now act to bring “accountability and transparency back into our General Plan and Community Plan processes”.

 *VANC urges involvement from NC councils and Alliances in the participation and input of the General Plan and Community Plans; meetings must be open to the public to ensure Transparency and Openness.
