Planning Documents for the SE Valley from other Public Agencies
The Department of City Planning is one of many public agencies making planning and policy decisions that impact the Southeast Valley. Some of the key documents from other public agencies are included here.
Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA)
The CRA was created in 1945 as a tool to revitalize communities. The agency was dissolved in 2011, but the CRA's plans have lived on, and continue to shape development in the City of Los Angeles. In July 2018, the CRA's website went offline, but their plans are still in effect in North Hollywood. The plans that impact the Southeast Valley are included here for reference.
Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG)
SCAG is a regional association of governments for six Southern California counties (Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino and Ventura) and 191 cities. The SCAG Regional Transportation Plan/Sustainable Communities Strategy charts a course for closely integrating land use and transportation – so that the region can grow smartly and sustainably.
Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Agency (Metro)
LA Metro is responsible for planning, building and maintaining the County's transportation system. Through Metro's Transit Oriented Communities program, the agency promotes integration of land use, transportation and community development, with several efforts underway in the San Fernando Valley.
