Clean Up Green Up

On June 19, 2013, the City Council initiated the Clean Up Green Up pilot by approving the Clean Up Green Up Trust Fund Ordinance. The goal of the pilot program is to address the cumulative health impacts of industrial land uses adjacent to homes, schools, parks, and other sensitive areas. The program begins in portions of Boyle Heights, Pacoima, and Wilmington that have been affected by industrial pollution.

Venice Local Coastal Program

The California Coastal Act requires Venice to have a Local Coastal Program (LCP) establishing land use, development, natural resource protection, coastal access, and public recreation policies for the Venice Coastal Zone.

In partnership with the California Coastal Commission, Los Angeles City Planning will implement the Venice LCP once the Commission has certified it.
