Important Notice Regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

City Planning has modified Development Services Center (DSC) operations to help protect the public and our employees who serve you. Consistent with Mayor Garcetti’s directives to help slow the spread of COVID-19 while continuing to deliver important City services, City Planning is minimizing in-person interaction throughout its offices.

Per City Ordinance 187219, proof of vaccination is required for a patron to enter an indoor portion of a City facility beginning November 8, 2021. This includes DSCs. In lieu of vaccination, we can accept a negative COVID test within 72 hours of entry. You can request a digital COVID-19 Vaccination Record if you were vaccinated in California (unless you were vaccinated at a federal facility) by visiting For any questions regarding vaccine records, visit the LA County Vaccine Records website.

The public counters at our DSCs are still open. However, our operations have been modified to minimize in-person contact and promote proper physical distancing. No in-person appointments will be scheduled at this time for the DSC public counters. However, you may use the scheduling from below to request a telephone or video conference appointment with DSC staff. Additionally, City Planning has established in-person drop off areas at all three DSCs with physical boxes for applicants to drop off plans and applications. The in-person drop off areas are available during regular business hours and are located in a secured, monitored location outside the DSCs. This will allow applicants to file project applications and provide plans without visiting the public counter or needing an initial filing appointment. For more information, click here. City Planning personnel will continue to be available to the public by telephone and email.

A TOC Tier Verification or an optional vesting SB330 Preliminary Application can be filed electronically via the City Planning Online Application System. Contact for questions about affordable housing programs and processes. Contact for questions about the SB330 Preliminary Application process.
