Downtown Village Specific Plan

 Client: City of La Cañada Flintridge

Working extensively with public and private stakeholders, this plan represents the City's most intensive public outreach effort on any planning project. Through this effort, the community defined a clear vision and goals for their Downtown resulting in new land uses, zoning regulations, and development and design standards specifically tailored to the Downtown Village. The plan includes requirements for mixed-use development, special setback and height requirements in the Village Center to preserve mountain views, and specific access, building size and orientation requirements for key development sites in the Specific Plan area.

This project won the Los Angeles Chapter American Planning Association Comprehensive Planning Award for a Small Jurisdiction.
