Citizen Participation Plan

“The Housing + Community Investment Department is soliciting public comment on the revised Citizen Participation Plan (CP Plan). As a requirement of the federal Housing and Urban Development Department, the CP Plan sets forth the City’s roadmap for encouraging and ensuring public participation in the Consolidated Planning process, including but not limited to: assessing needs, setting priorities and devising strategies for investment. The City’s Consolidated Plan, through its four entitlement grants (Community Development Block Grant, HOME, Emergency Solutions Grant and the Housing Opportunities for Person with AIDS) provides for public services, housing and related programs, neighborhood improvements, economic development, homelessness, and assistance to people living with AIDS. Activities funded by Community Development Block Grant funds are to primarily benefit low and moderate income persons, eliminate slum and blight, or meet an urgent need.

We invite you to review the CP Plan and provide your input and feedback.

The CP Plan may be accessed through the HCIDLA main website, under the “What’s New” banner:

http://lahd.lacity.org/

Please send your comments electronically to: hcidla.planning

The official, public comment period will continue through February 28, 2015.”

LA City Planning Early Notification Report 01-27-15

Attached is the Planning Department’s bi-weekly Early Notification Report for Certified Neighborhood Councils. The purpose of this report is to provide Neighborhood Councils with the earliest possible information about all applications for planning entitlements that have been filed in your neighborhood, even though not all applications are complete and some cases may eventually be withdrawn. Included in the report is contact information about the applicant so your Neighborhood Council can obtain more information about the project very early in the process. You will see that the report is provided in PDF and Excel formats.

The information in the report is sorted by Neighborhood Council. If your Neighborhood Council is not listed, no new applications for planning entitlements were filed in your area during the past two weeks.

We have expanded the scope of our Early Notification Report and are now sending it to ALL Certified Neighborhood Council board members for whom the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment (DONE) has an e-mail address. The Planning Department will continue to use the DONE database for these reports, as it provides us with the most accurate and up-to-date information and allows us to make sure that all board members can have access to this information. We strongly suggest that your Neighborhood Council keep your DONE Project Coordinator informed about any changes so that you continue to receive our notifications. Furthermore, if any of your board members spam-protect their e-mail accounts, please ask them to open their e-mail addresses to receive e-mails from the City.

The Planning Department requires that an official notice be sent by U.S. mail to the appropriate Certified Neighborhood Council for each public hearing on a case. In order to ensure that your Certified Neighborhood Council receives a mailed notice, please make sure that your Neighborhood Council provides DONE with the one contact name and address that should receive the Planning Department official notices.

L.A. Consolidated Plan Community Meetings

As you may know the Los Angeles Housing + Community Investment Department (HCIDLA) hosted four community meetings throughout the City, in September 2014. The purpose was to engage the community and get their active input on the development of the 3rd year of the Consolidated Plan (Con Plan).

During the first two weeks of February 2015, HCIDLA will host follow-up community meetings, where we will share the Mayor’s draft Con Plan to gather comments from the community.

Please see attached flyers for details. If you’d like to receive copies of the flyers for distribution or to have at your agency/public counters as handouts, please contact hcidla.planning to request copies.
