In this article, we’ll be familiarizing you with the Framework’s Open Space and Conservation Chapter (Chapter 6). Next reCodeLA meeting will be in September. Info: recode.la
The purpose of this chapter is to provide a path to manage and conserve Los Angeles’s open space resources and address the outdoor recreation needs of the City’s residents. You may also want to take a look at the Open Space Element and the Conservation Element of the Los Angeles General Plan for additional detail. The Framework’s Open Space and Conservation Chapter works in conjunction with the two elements. The Open Space Element provides extensive Open Space policies, programs, standards and criteria. The Conservation Element addresses conservation, protection, development, utilization, and reclamation of natural resources.

Since then, the re:code LA team held several listening sessions, developed a Zoning Code Evaluation Report, held regional and virtual listening sessions, and confirmed our project objectives with the Zoning Advisory Committee, City Planning Commission, and City Council. With a direction locked down, the team went into production mode and has developed a framework for our new Code. We have also made significant progress in developing a new zoning system that changes the relationship between communities and our Zoning Code: instead of forcing communities to conform to our Code, we are seeking to create a Code that conforms to our communities. The new Code must allow for direct implementation of the wide variety of visions for our large and diverse City. We will be posting an article that describes this new zoning approach when it is finalized. - See more at: http://recode.la/updates/news/two-years-and-counting#sthash.n8bHKWGD.dpuf
If you ask most people what their Zoning is, you will most likely get a confused expression. If you are one of those people, don’t worry, you are in good company. - See more at: http://recode.la/updates/news/deciphering-our-current-zoning-system#sthash.72AMMs0C.dpuf
