Small Lot Design Guidelines
Wednesday, April 30, 2014, 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM
Ronald F. Deaton Civic Auditorium (LAPD Buidling) located at 100 W. 1st Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012
In 2005, the City of Los Angeles adopted the Small Lot Subdivision Ordinance that allows for the construction of fee-simple infill housing on underutilized land in multi-family and commercial zones. It is intended to generate a new form of single family home ownership and to provide an alternative to traditional apartments or condominiums. These small lots provide a more space-efficient and economically attractive alternative for sites zoned for apartment or condominium uses. In response to the complex design issues that Small Lot Subdivisions present, the Urban Design Studio developed design guidelines to aid the development community, City staff, and residents. The Guidelines outline recommendations for site organization and urban form, setbacks and building transitions, parking and driveways, building design and materials, and landscaping and access. Small lot projects filed after February 1, 2014 must substantially comply with the Guidelines in order to receive project approval.

To that effect, the City of Los Angeles' Simon Pastucha, Head of the Urban Design Studio and Jae Kim, Senior City Planner will present the Small Lot Design Guidelines to the development community on Wednesday April 30th from 3:00pm to 4:30pm at the Ronald F. Deaton Civic Auditorium (LAPD Buidling) located at 100 W. 1st Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012. There will be a brief question and answer session after the presentation.
