Locations & Hours

All visitors must wear protective face coverings while interacting with City Planning personnel

Whether a project is small (a single-family home addition) or large (a skyscraper), it starts as a project application that is submitted to one of the City’s Development Services Centers (DSCs). The public counter is where planning and development come together and the land use process typically begins.

Consistent with Mayor Garcetti’s directives to help slow the spread of COVID-19, City Planning has modified its Development Services Center (DSC) operations to help keep the public safe. The Department offers a mix of in-person as well as telephone and virtual appointments. Click on COVID-19 Updates below to stay updated on available DSC services.
