Life after the Land Use Element (LUE)

The City Council passed the much discussed and difficult to understand Land Use Element. The real work is in front of us. We will now have the responsibility to discuss the zoning, urban design and green zones overlay. We’ll be posting engagement and information opportunities in the days ahead. In the meantime, the East 7th Street Collaboration will review the next steps for our adjoining neighborhoods of Rose Park, Rose Park South, AOC7, Craftsman Village and North Alamitos Beach Neighborhood groups.
