Public Counter

The public counter at Los Angeles City Planning’s Development Services Centers (DSCs) serves as a single portal and point of consultation for a wide range of project applications. In the City of Los Angeles, there are three DSCs with dedicated planning resources: Metro (Downtown), Valley (Van Nuys), and West Los Angeles.

At any of these locations, applicants can schedule an appointment to receive technical guidance on planning approvals during the design, entitlement, and permitting stages of a project. Small business owners and residents can also visit the DSCs to learn about proposed land use regulations pertaining to land use.
