Dear Wildlife Stakeholder,
The proposed Wildlife Ordinance will be heard by the Los Angeles City Planning Commission (CPC) on Thursday, November 17, 2022, beginning after 8:30 a.m. on Zoom. The ordinance and staff recommendation report will be presented for CPC-2022-3413-CA, CPC-2022-3712-ZC, and ENV-2022-3414-CE. The staff report describes the project background, the basis for the proposed regulations, changes that have been made to the ordinance since the last draft was publicly released, and more.
The proposed Wildlife Ordinance aims to reduce cumulative development impacts on plants, animals, and natural resources while providing co-benefits related to climate resilience and public health. The ordinance proposes development standards for lot coverage, floor area, grading, and height limitations, as well as native landscaping/trees, fence, trash enclosure, and window and lighting requirements. The ordinance also includes regulations that apply to private properties within the District, including additional discretionary review where lots contain or are adjacent to natural resources, such as waterways and open space.
For more information about the Wildlife Ordinance, and to read the latest Draft Ordinance, the Staff Recommendation Report to the CPC with separate Exhibits and Appendices, and the Summary of the Ordinance and Changes, please visit planning4la.org/wildlife.
The agenda for this meeting is available at planning4la.org/hearings, and includes instructions for submitting comments directly to the CPC. Due to concerns over COVID-19, this public hearing will be conducted entirely on Zoom and will allow for remote public comment.
Thank you for your interest in the proposed Wildlife Ordinance.
