On April 27, 2023, the Planning Department will conduct a Public Hearing during the regularly-scheduled meeting of the City Planning Commission meeting. All interested persons are invited to participate. The meeting commences at 8:30 a.m. and will occur in-person at Van Nuys City Hall located at 14410 Sylvan Street, #215, Van Nuys, CA 91401. There is also an option to virtually join the meeting and provide public comment over Zoom. The Public Hearing will occur during the meeting, after 8:30 a.m., and will include a brief overview of the proposed amendment to the Site Plan Review Ordinance. The Public Hearing is a formal opportunity for the public to provide comments on the proposed ordinance, which is being considered for recommendation by the City Planning Commission. Following the City Planning Commission’s recommendation on the proposed ordinance, it will proceed to the City Council for consideration and possible adoption.


The proposed amendment to the Site Plan Review Ordinance would amend Section 16.05 of the Los Angeles Municipal Code (LAMC) in order to streamline the permitting of new affordable housing units. The proposed amendment to the Site Plan Review Ordinance would exempt deed restricted affordable units from the 50-unit Site Plan Review threshold calculations. The Ordinance was analyzed in Housing Element Environmental Impact Report No. ENV-2020-6762-EIR, SCH No. 2021010130 certified on November 29, 2021 and the Addendum (ENV-2020-6762-EIR-ADD1) approved June 14, 2022.
