The Hollywood Community Plan Update (Project) would guide development for the Hollywood CPA through 2040 and includes amending both the text and the land use map of the Hollywood Community Plan. The Proposed Project would also adopt several resolutions and zoning ordinances to implement the updates to the Community Plan, including changes for certain portions of the Hollywood CPA to allow specific uses and changes to development standards (including height, floor area ratio (FAR), and density). These zoning ordinances would take a number of different forms, including amendments to the Zoning Map for zone and height district changes under Los Angeles Municipal Code (LAMC) Section 12.32, amendments to an existing specific plan (Vermont/Western Transit Oriented District Specific Plan), and adoption of a Hollywood Community Plan Implementation Overlay (CPIO) District. Also, to ensure consistency between the updated Community Plan and other City plans and ordinances, the Proposed Project includes amendments to the Framework and Mobility Elements of the General Plan, and other elements as necessary.
