Boyle Heights Community Plan
By EGP News Report
The Los Angeles City Council has approved Councilman Jose Huizar’s legislation to reinstate funding for the Boyle Heights Community Plan, “which due to budget cuts was halted in 2010 after 40 percent of the work had already been completed,” according to a statement from Huizar’s office.
Measure R funds will be used to staff one position, and the Planning Department has committed a second planner to work on the project, according to the statement.
Community Plans offer detailed and long-term planning, community service and redevelopment needs for the City’s 35 planning areas. While issuing a new plan every 10 years is ideal, currently the City has the resources to issue its community planning reports roughly every 20 years.Print This Post
