With funding from Metro, the city of Los Angeles Planning Department is working on a new Transit Neighborhood Plan for five stations along the Orange Line, as well as other Metro lines. In plain English, the plan’s purpose is to encourage more development near stations — and to regulate development.
The above graphic from the Planning Department gives you an idea what the city has in mind. The Daily News also has an article today that does a nice job explaining it.
The city site also lets you look at the existing zoning for each of the five stations — basically a larger view of what’s in the map above.
As mentioned above, the city is also working on similar plans for stations along the Expo Line, Crenshaw/LAX Line, Purple Line Extension and Regional Connector. Visit this website to sign up for email updates on the city’s planning efforts.
