Claude Pepper Senior Citizen Center, 1762 S. La Cienega Blvd
Faircrest Heights (including part of C.H.A.P.S.) was one of 15 neighborhoods protected by a March 2015 Interim Control Ordinance (ICO) limiting mansionization. Affecting single family dwellings on RA, RE, RS and R1 lots between Pico, La Cienega, Venice and Fairfax, the ICO allows demolitions, additions, remodels and new construction, while placing limitations on the size of new or remodeled homes.
Given our ICO status, we will be among the first neighborhoods in the city to be granted access to a menu of new single family zones currently being developed by City Planning under the re:CodeLA effort. City Planning has set up a community meeting JUST FOR US, to help our neighborhood understand - and help determine - our options. Community input is critical!
Below please find a message from City Planning:
The Department of City Planning is kicking off a series of community meetings for the Interim Control Ordinances (ICO) areas across the City to address the issues confronting single-family neighborhoods. This draft ordinance will be the follow-up to the March 25, 2015 Interim Control Ordinance to establish new regulations for neighborhood conservation. Please join us at the open house meeting near you to hear the menu of new zoning options and tell us what you think.
At this meeting, you will have an opportunity to learn more during an open house-style session with Planning staff, followed by a brief presentation about the area and zoning options and timeline for this ordinance. We will conclude with small group discussions where staff will hear more about your concerns, ideas, and feedback about draft zoning options.
Following this meeting, staff will review feedback and information provided by community members and move forth with preparing a draft ordinance. Follow-up focus group meetings will be scheduled, followed by a public hearing before the draft ordinance will be presented to the City Planning Commission (CPC) in late summer.

Feel free to forward this email. We look forward to seeing you soon!
