Draft Safety Element and Plan for a Healthy LA Revisions

PUBLISHED ON: July 7, 2021

The City is undertaking a targeted update of the Safety Element alongside the comprehensive update of the Housing Element, as directed by recent state legislation. A draft of the update to the Safety Element is now available. This draft preserves the structure of the current 1996 Safety Element, with targeted amendments to better integrate related long range planning documents and comply with recent changes to state laws. In addition, the City is proposing targeted amendments to the Plan for a Healthy Los Angeles, also known as the Health and Wellness Element, to provide updated Health Atlas maps and to better illustrate compliance with SB 1000, a Senate Bill requiring jurisdictions to address environmental justice in General Plans.
