Dear Stakeholders,
In April, Los Angeles City Planning released a revised draft of the proposed Wildlife District Ordinance, with a goal of having this ordinance considered by the City Planning Commission in the fall of 2022. This summer, City Planning will hold an information session and public hearing on the proposed ordinance. This is your opportunity to learn more about the proposed regulations and submit a public comment. 
The Wildlife District Ordinance proposes new development standards for lot coverage, landscaping, and setbacks, as well as grading and height limitations, among others. The ordinance includes regulations that apply to all properties within the Wildlife District, as well as additional regulations that apply to lots where natural resources, such as water features, open space, or ridgelines, are present. The Wildlife District proposal includes a code amendment to create a new Wildlife Supplemental Use District (WLD) and a zone change to apply the regulations to the zoning of properties located in the WLD District, approximately between the 405 and 101 freeways, Ventura Blvd. and Sunset Blvd. An interactive version of this map, which allows you to search by address and view ridgeline and resource buffers, is available on the City Planning website. 
The interactive map, draft ordinance, and more information can be found on the project webpage at planning4la.org/wildlife. Participants are encouraged to view the recorded presentation that will be shared at the virtual information session and available under Outreach & Events prior to the hearing.
