Workshop Scheduled on Community Plan

The Los Angeles Planning Department will hold a workshop Thursday on the community plan for Sunland-Tujunga / Lake View Terrace / Shadow Hills / La Tuna Canyon area.

The city's 35 community plans comprise the Los Angeles General Plan and are updated periodically to provide guidelines for development.

"This is just an update to the plan, not a full-scale revision," said Phil Garofalo, a city planner, noting that such updates usually take place every five to 10 years.

Only two major changes have been made to the Sunland-Tujunga area community plan since it was originally adopted in 1980, Garofalo said.

Those changes include a zone change in steeply sloping hillside areas to reduce density and limit residential development, Garofalo said.

The other change was adoption of the Foothill Boulevard Corridor Specific Plan, which became effective last year.

That plan is intended to improve the physical appearance of the commercial and residential development clustered along the boulevard, which is the main artery through the community plan area.

Thursday's workshop will be held from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Sunland-Tujunga Municipal Building, 7747 Foothill Blvd., Tujunga.
