LOS ANGELES COUNTY CODE 



TITLE 21 
SUBDIVISIONS 



The provisions codified in this code reflect changes made by all county ordinances up to 
and including Ordinance 2008-00 I2U, passed April 1, 2008. The latest ordinance amending 
Title 21 of the code is Ordinance 2008-001 1, passed March 25, 2008. 

21-i Supp. # 76, 5-08 



PUBLISHER'S NOTE 

The Los Angeles County Code is organized by subject matter under an expandable, 
three-factor decimal numbering system which is designed to facilitate future changes 
with minimum disturbance to current regulations. Each section number includes in its 
sequence the title, chapter and section number. For example. Section 21.08.170 is 
Section 170 (.170) in Chapter 8 (.08) of Title 21. In most instances, sections are 
numbered by tens (.010, .020, .030, etc.), leaving nine vacant positions between 
original sections to accommodate new provisions. Chapters and titles are also 
numbered to provide for expansion. 

In parentheses following each code section is a legislative history note, which lists all 
ordinances which have affected that section since the date of original enactment. 

A cross-reference table locating current placement of all Ordinance 4478 provisions 
in the new code, is set out in Appendix 1 for Title 21. 

Footnotes to statutory provisions and to related code provisions in other code volumes 
appear at the end of each title. 

A subject-matter index covering all the provisions of this Title 21 and locating 
subjects by code section number is set out at the end of the title. 

A complete Ordinance List and Disposition Table is set forth in Volume 8 of the 
code; it lists all the county's ordinances, gives an outline of their contents and 
subjects, and indicates the chapter of the code where each ordinance's provisions 
appear.

or parcel map, shall conform to the standards and details set forth in Chapter 15, 
Division 3, of the Business and Professions Code, the Land Surveyor's Act. The 
allowable error of closure on any portion of a final map or parcel map shall be 
1/10,000. 

B. In the event that the county engineer, county road commissioner, the State 
Highway Engineer or any city engineer shall have established the centerline of any 
street or alley in or adjoining a division of land, the final map or parcel map shall 
show such centerline, together with reference to a field book or map showing such 
centerline and the monuments which determine its position. If determined by ties, 
that fact shall be stated upon the final map or parcel map. (Ord. 9071 § 1 1 (part), 
1966: Ord. 4478 Art. 7 § 111, 1945.) 

21.20.020 Boundary monuments — Location and materials. Each final 
map or parcel map shall show durable monuments found or set at or near each 
boundary comer and at intermediate points, approximately 1,000 feet apart, or at 
such lesser distances as may be made necessary by topography or culture to insure 
accuracy in the reestablishment of any point or line without unreasonable difficulty. 
The precise position and the character of each such monument shall be shown on 
such map. Such durable monument shall be not less substantial than an iron pipe 
of a two-inch outside diameter, not less than two and one-half feet in length, with 
plug and tack, and set at least two feet into the ground, or of such other character 
and stability as may be approved by the county engineer. For the purpose of this 
Title 21, a lead and tack set in permanent concrete or masonry shall be considered 
as a durable monument. The approximate elevation of the top of each such monu- 
ment with respect to the surface of the ground shall be shown on said map. (Ord. 
9071 § 11 (part), 1966: Ord. 4478 Art. 7 § 112, 1945.) 

21.20.030 Street centerline monuments. A. Whenever necessary in the

a sufficient number (normally four) of durable distinctive reference points or 
monuments. 

B. Such reference points or monuments may be leads and tacks in sidewalks, 
or two-inch by two-inch stakes set back of the curbline and below the surface of 
the ground, or such substitute therefor as appears to be not more likely to be 
disturbed. 

C. Such set of notes.shall be of such quality, form and completeness, and 
shall be on paper of such quality and size, as may be necessary to conform to the 
standardized office records of the county surveyor. All such notes shall be indexed 
and filed by the county surveyor as a part of the permanent public records of this 
office. (Ord. 4478 Art. 7 § 114, 1945.) 

21.20.050 Identification marks on monuments. All monuments found or 
set as required herein shall be permanently and visibly marked or tagged with the 
registration or license number of the engineer or surveyor under whose supervision 
the survey was made. (Ord. 11665 § 30, 1978: Ord. 4478 Art. 7 § 115, 1945.) 

21.20.060 Boundary monuments — Time for setting — Deferment 
conditions. All boundary monuments shall be set prior to filing of the final map 
or parcel map unless extensive grading operations or improvement work makes it 
impractical to set monuments. In the event any of the boundary monuments required 
are to be set subsequent to filing of the parcel map or final map, the engineer or 
surveyor making the survey shall furnish evidence acceptable to the county engineer 
prior to submitting the map to substantiate his reasons for deferring the setting of 
permanent monuments until after filing of the map. If the setting of boundary 
monuments is deferred, field notes showing the boundary survey shall be presented 
to the county engineer at the time the map is submitted for checking. Interior street- 
centerline monuments may be set subsequent to filing of the map. The map shall 
show which monuments are in place and are to be set. Prior to approval of the final 
map by the board of supervisors or of a parcel map by the advisory agency, the 
subdivider shall submit a written agreement in which he agrees that the monuments 
so deferred will be set within a specified time, and that the notes required in Section 
21.20.050 will be furnished within a specified time. (Ord. 11665 § 31, 1978: Ord.

2 1 .24.030 Wildland access. 

2 1 .24.040 Modifications to access and frontage requirements. 

21.24.010 General requirements — Determination of adequacy. A. Each 
street providing access to lots within a division of land shall connect directly or 
through one or more other streets to a highway which is shown on the Highways 
Plan and which is maintained and open to public travel. Each route of access to a 
highway which is shown on the Highway Plan shall be adequate to accommodate 
the composition and volume of vehicular traffic generated by the land uses which it 
serves. 

B. In determining the adequacy of a route of access, the advisory agency 
shall consider the potential for blockage of the route by flood, fire or landslide and 
the effect of such blockage on the safe evacuation of future users and occupants of 
the division and on the deployment of fire equipment or other services under 
emergency conditions. The advisory agency may disapprove a design which makes 
use of a residential street as a route of access to industrial, commercial or other 
divisions of land generating traffic which would conflict with the residential char- 
acter of the street. (Ord. 85-0168 § 1, 1985; Ord. 10485 § 2, 1972: Ord. 4478 Art. 4 § 
40, 1945.) 

21.24.020 Restricted residential access. A. If a street or street system is 
restricted to a single route of access to a highway shown on the Highway Plan, 
except for a limited secondary highway, which is maintained and open to public 
travel, whether at the point of intersection with the highway or at some point 
distant from the highway, the street or street system shall serve not more than: 

1. 150 dwelling units where the restriction is designed to be perma- 
nent and the street or street system does not traverse a wildland area which is 
subject to hazard from brush or forest fire; 

2. 75 dwelling units where the restriction is designed to be permanent 
and the street or street system traverses a wildland area which is subject to hazard 
from brush or forest fire; 

21-15 



21.24.020 



3. 300 dwelling units, where the restriction is subject to removal 
through future development. 

B. If the roadway paving on that portion of the street or street system 
forming the restriction is less than 36 feet in width and is not to be widened to 36 
feet or more as a part of the development of the division of land, the permitted 
number of dwelling units shall be reduced by 25 percent if the pavement is 28 feet or 
more in width, and by 50 percent if the pavement is less than 28 feet in width. If the 
roadway paving on that portion of the street or street system forming the restriction 
is 64 feet or more in width and the restriction is subject to removal through future 
development, the permitted number of dwelling units may be increased to 600. In 
no event shall the pavement width be less than 20 feet. The provisions of this 
section shall not apply to divisions of land referred to in Section 21.32.040 to 
divisions of land approved pursuant to Section 21.32.080, or to minor land divi- 
sions. (Ord. 85-0168 § 2, 1985; Ord. 10485 § 4, 1972: Ord. 4478 Art. 4 § 40.2, 1945.) 

21.24.030 Wildland access. Notwithstanding the provisions of Sections 
21.24.020 and 21.24.190, the advisory agency may disapprove a design of a division 
of land which utilizes a cul-de-sac or branching street system or other single-access 
street or street system as the sole or principal means of access to lots within the 
division, where the forester and fire warden advises: 

A. That the street or street system will traverse a wildland area which is 
subject to extreme hazard from brush or forest fires; 

B. That the lack of a second route of access would unduly hinder public 
evacuation and the deployment of fire-fighting and other emergency equipment in 
the event of a brush or forest fire. (Ord. 10485 § 3, 1972: Ord. 4478 Art. 4 § 40.1, 
1945.) 

21.24.040 Modifications to access and frontage requirements. The advisory 
agency may modify the requirements of Sections 21.24.010, 21.24.020, 21.24.190 
and 21.24.290 where it finds that topographic conditions, title limitations, or the 
pattern of ownership or the state of development of parcels in the immediate 
vicinity of a division of land make the strict application of the provisions of these 
sections impossible or impractical and that the public health, safety and general 
welfare will not be adversely affected thereby. (Ord. 10485 § 5, 1972: Ord. 4478 Art.

21.24.065 Right-of-way and roadway width requirements — Cross-section 
diagrams. A. Each highway shall have a width of right-of-way, vehicular pavement 
and sidewalk where a sidewalk is required, to conform to the following cross- 
sections or such other designs as approved by the road commissioner. The advisory 
agency may modify the requirements of this section as to highway widths if 
topographic features, title limitations, existing improvements or safety considera- 
tions make such dedication impossible or impractical. 

B. Width of Limited Secondary Highways. Where the advisory agency 
finds that the traffic or drainage conditions warrant, the area indicated by the 
asterisk in Diagram 3 shall be shown as a future or dedicated right-of-way If such 
finding is not made, said area shall be subject to the provisions specified by Section

way within a division of land intersects any railroad, intenirban, or streetcar right- 
of-way, and such highway is shown upon the Highway Plan, and provision is made 
in such plan for the location of a separation of grades at such intersection, the road 
layout of the division of land shall be such as to conform to such plan. 

B. Each lot abutting upon a proposed cut or fill necessary for the approach 
to such grade separation shall be given suitable access elsewhere. 

C. Wherever it is proposed to divide property abutting an approach to an 
existing or proposed bridge, the division shall be arranged so that any lot abutting 
such approach has suitable access elsewhere, and the street layout adequately 
provides for such approach. (Ord. 85-0168 § 7, 1985; Ord. 9071 § 5 (part), 1966: Ord.

21.24.090 Right-of-way and roadway width requirements — Cross-section 
diagrams. A. Each alley and street shall have a width of right-of-way, vehicular 
pavement and sidewalk, where a sidewalk is required, to conform to the following 
cross-sections. The advisory agency may modify the requirements of this section as 
to right-of-way and improvements widths if topographic features, title limitations, 
the general plan, community standards districts, the pattern of existing neigh- 
borhood development or existing improvements, or safety considerations make 
such dedication impossible, unnecessary or impractical. The advisory agency may 
also modify right-of-way and improvement width requirements in conjunction 
with a conditional use permit for a residential planned development, density- 
controlled development or hillside development if it finds that the standard street 
widths are not consistent with the approved design. In no case shall the minimum 
right-of-way be less than 40 feet, except for alleys. The cross-sections designated as 

21-19 



21.24.090 



"alternate" shall not apply if the advisory agency finds that the use of such alternate 
cross-sections would not be in keeping with the design and improvement of 
adjoining highways or streets. 

B. That position of a street marked with an asterisk (*) in the following 
diagrams may be counted as part of the net area of a lot or parcel of land. The line 
between that portion of a street marked with an asterisk (*) and the portion thereof 
not so marked shall be deemed to be the property line as the words "property line" 
are used in the Zoning Ordinance set out at Title 22 of this code, but this shall not 
permit any encroachment within any portion of such street by the underlying fee 
owner. 

C. Diagrams. (See following pages for diagrams.) (Ord. 85-0 1 68 § 8, 1 985: 
Ord 10485 § 1 1, 1972; Ord. 9086 § 1, 1966: Ord. 7634 § 4, 1959: Ord. 4478 An. 4 § 
54, 1945.) 

21.24.100 Street grades. No highway or street shall have a grade of more 
than six percent, except for short stretches where the topography makes it imprac- 
ticable to keep within such grade, and in no event shall the grade exceed 10 percent, 
except where evidence, which is satisfactory to the advisory agency, is given that a 
lower grade is not possible. (Ord. 85-0194 § 3 (part), 1985; Ord. 4478 Art. 4 § 55, 
1945.) 

21.24.110 Right-of-way radius. Intersections of road right-of-way lines, 
where one or both roads are local residential, shall be rounded with a curve having a 
radius of 13 feet, unless otherwise determined by the road commissioner. Intersec- 
tions of road right-of-way lines, where both roads are shown as highways on the 
Highways Plan or one of the roads serves a commercial or industrial development, 
shall be rounded with a curve having a radius of 27 feet, unless otherwise deter- 
mined by the road commissioner. (Ord. 85-0 1 68 § 9, 1 985: Ord. 972 1 § 5, 1 969: Ord. 
8822 § 2, 1965: Ord. 8792 § 2, 1965: Ord. 4478 Art. 4 § 57, 1945.) 

21.24.120 Future streets. Wherever the advisory agency shall have deter- 
mined that a street is necessary for the future division of property as shown on the 
tentative map, or for adjoining property, but that the present dedication and 
construction of such street is not warranted, the advisory agency may require that 
the location, width and extent of such street shall be shown on the final map or 
parcel map as a future street. No improvement of such future street shall be 
required of the subdivides (Ord. 85-0194 § 3 (part), 1985; Ord. 9071 § 5 (part), 1966: 
Ord. 5883 § 3, 1952: Ord. 4478 Art. 4 § 56, 1945.) 

21.24.130 Centerline curve radius. On any street the centerline curve radius 
shall not be less than 100 feet, unless sufficient evidence is offered to the advisory 
agency by the subdivider to show that the 100-foot radius is not practicable. (Ord. 
85-0168 § 10, 1985: Ord. 85-0194 § 3 (part), 1985; Ord. 4478 Art. 4 § 45, 1945.) 

21.24.140 Street intersection angle. Except as provided in Section 
21.24.060, any highway or street intersecting any other highway or street shall 
intersect it at an angle as nearly a right angle as practicable. (Ord. 4478 Art. 4 § 46, 
1945.) 

21.24.150 Service roads or alleys required when. A. Whenever it is proposed 
to divide property abutting a major or secondary highway, a service road or other

local street shall be provided unless the circumstances of such property or of 
adjoining property render it inadvisable or undesirable to provide access by such 
service road or other local street. 

B. Where a service road or local street is not required, the subdivider shall 
provide an alley at the rear of such lots unless the advisory agency finds such alley 
inadvisable, undesirable, detrimental to adjoining property, or contrary to the best 
community design. (Ord. 9071 § 5 (pan), 1966: Ord. 5345 § 2, 1949: Ord. 4478 Art. 4 
§ 50, 1945.) 

21.24.160 Alleys in congested districts. The advisory agency may require 
that an alley be provided at the rear of all lots where property is to be used for 
multiple residential use (not including two-family use) or commercial or other less- 
restrictive uses. (Ord. 9721 § 4, 1969: Ord. 9204 § 3, 1966: Ord. 4478 Art. 4 § 48, 
1945.) 

21.24.170 Alley intersections. Where two alleys intersect, a cutoff of not less 
than 10 feet along each alley shall be provided. (Ord. 4478 Art. 4 § 49, 1945.) 

21.24.180 Turnarounds. A. A turning area shall be provided at the end of 
cul-de-sac streets and dead-end alleys. The advisory agency may require turn- 
arounds: 

1 . Upon the recommendation of the subdivision committee, at inter- 
mediate points on cul-de-sacs of more than 700 feet in length, and on other local 
streets where the distance between intersections exceeds 2,000 feet; and 

2. At the end of stub or dead-end streets or more than 300 feet in 
length where the future extension of the street is remote. 

B. All such turnarounds shall conform to the specifications of the road 
commissioner. (Ord. 10485 § 6, 1972: Ord. 4478 Art. 4 § 47, 1945.) 

21.24.190 Cul-de-sacs — Length restrictions. A. Cul-de-sacs shall be not 
more than: 

1. 500 feet in length, when serving land zoned for industrial or 
commercial use; 

2. 700 feet in length, when serving land zoned for residential uses 
having a density of more than four dwelling units per net acre; 

3. 1,000 feet in length, when serving land zoned for residential uses 
having a density of four or less dwelling units per net acre. 

B. This section shall not be construed to prohibit the approval of a division 
of land utilizing frontage on an existing cul-de-sac of more than the maximum 
permitted length nor shall it be construed to prohibit the advisory agency from 
reducing the length of a proposed cul-de-sac to less than the maximum length 
permitted by this section or requiring the elimination of a proposed cul-de-sac in 
order to provide for the efficient circulation of traffic, the future development of the 
neighborhood street system or the deployment of emergency services. (Ord. 10485 § 
7, 1972: Ord. 7634 § 3 (part), 1959: Ord. 4478 .Art. 4 § 47.1, 1945.) 

21.24.200 Mobilehome divisions of land — Street and driveway standards. 

Those streets, existing or proposed within or contiguous to a mobilehome division 
of land which are to be dedicated or offered to be dedicated for public use shall meet 
the standards outlined in Section 21.24.090. Driveways in such division shall have 

21-27 



21.24.200 



minimum widths of 30 feet. However, greater driveway widths may be required by 
the advisory agency if the design or magnitude of such division warrants the greater 
width. (Ord. 85-0168 § 11, 1985: Ord. 11681 § 2, 1978: Ord. 4478 Art. 4 § 59, 1945.) 

21.24.210 Pedestrian ways. Excepting in the case of any reversion-to- 
acreage map, vacation map or boundary-line map, a transverse pedestrian way of 
adequate width may be required through the approximate middle of each block 
having a length of more than 700 feet. No such pedestrian way shall have a grade 
exceeding 30 percent, provided that where one or more adequate stairways in such 
pedestrian way are made a part of the improvement thereof, the grade of such 
stairway may be as great as 75 percent. (Ord. 4478 Art. 4 § 51, 1945.) 

21.24.220 Fire-flghting access easements. In areas where, in the opinion of 
the forester and fire warden, there will be fire hazard to the watershed or any other 
properties, unobstructed fire-protection access easements, not less than 15 feet 
wide, shall be dedicated firom the public highway to the boundary of the division of 
land. Where the design of a division of land will cause an existing fire road or fire 
break to be severed, and the forester and fire warden advises that this condition will 
impair the provision of adequate fire protection, the advisory agency may require 
that the subdivider either revise the design of the division of land so that the fire 
road or fire break will not be severed or provide an alternate easement. The forester 
and fire warden shall recommend to the advisory agency regarding the location, 
design and grading of easements required pursuant to the provisions of this section. 
Such location, design and grading shall be as found necessary by the advisorv 
agency (Ord. 10485 § 8, 1972: Ord. 9071 § 5 (part), 1966: Ord. 7634 § 3 (part), 1959: 
Ord. 4478 Art. 4 § 47.2, 1945.) 

21.24.230 Collector streets on section lines and quarter-section lines. 

Collector streets shall be established on all section lines and quarter-section lines in 
the Antelope Valley, except on those lines designated as highways on the Highway 
Plan. The advisory agency may select a different location for such streets where 
existing conditions on the ground, ownership patterns, topography, environmental 
factors or other concerns warrant. (Ord. 85-0168 § 12, 1985.)

21.24.240 Area and width — Requirements generally. A. Each lot in any 
division of land shall have an area not less than either the required area or what will 
be the required area at the time of the submission of the final map or parcel map for 
approval for the zone in which the lot or any portion thereof is located. Each lot 
shall have an average width of not less than the required width, or what will be the 
required width at the time of the submission of the final map or parcel map for 
approval, or shall contain an area of not less than such required area within a 
portion which does have an average width of not less than such required width, 
except as provided in Sections 21.24,280 or 21.24.360 or 21.24.370. The required 
area and the required width shall be the same as those terms are defined, respec- 
tively, in the Zoning Ordinance set out at Title 22 of this code. Where the Zoning 
Ordinance does not establish a required area or a required width in a particular 
zone, the required area shall be 5,000 feet and the required width shall be 50 feet. 

B. If any lot is in more than one zone, then the area and width thereof shall 
be not less than the area and width requirements, respectively, in that zone in which 
any part of the lot is located which has the largest area requirement and in that zone 
in which any part of the lot is located which has the greatest width requirement. 

C. This section does not apply to any lot which the subdivider offers to 
deed or dedicate to the public. 

D. Where public sewers are not available and private sewage disposal is to 
be used, every lot or parcel or building site shall be of sufficient size to provide for 
satisfactory sewage disposal for the land use intended. (Ord. 9071 § 5 (part), 1966: 
Ord. 7831 § 1, 1960; Ord. 7694 § 1, 1959; Ord. 7634 § 5, 1959; Ord. 7345 § 5, 1958; 
Ord. 6365 § 1, 1954: Ord. 6251 § 1, 1953: Ord. 4478 Art. 5 § 71, 1945.) 

21.24.250 Area and width — Sloping terrain. A. In lieu of compliance with 
subsection A of Section 21.24.240, the plan of subdivision may comply with the 
requirements of Section 21.24.260 if the advisory agency determines: 

1. That due to sloping terrain, the topographic features within the 
division of land will be better utilized if a portion of the lots in such division are less 
in area than the applicable designation; 

2. That a final map or parcel map of the division of land or any part 
thereof will not be filed unless the average area of all lots on such map or maps is not 
less than the applicable zoning designation; 

3. That the lots having a reduced area will be compatible in design to 
adjacent facing and siding lots of abutting development; 

4. That all lots which are not reduced in area shall comply with 
subsection A of Section 21.24.240. 

B. Lots which have been averaged in area with one or more other lots on a 
final map or parcel map in order to comply with the provisions of this section shall 
not be resubdivided or otherwise divided unless the advisory agency finds that the 
division will not reduce the average area of the lots resulting from the division and 
any remaining lots shown on the final map or parcel map below the applicable 
zoning designation. (Ord. 9721 § 6, 1969: Ord. 9071 § 5 (part), 1966: Ord. 8042 § 1 
(part), 1961: Ord. 4478 Art. 5 § 71.1, 1945.)

has made all of the findings listed in Section 21.24.250, not to exceed 43 percent of 
the lots in the division of land may have less than the required area if they all have 
an area and average width not less than that shown on the following table.

21.24.270 Area and width — Change of zone. A. If the advisory agency has 
approved and recommended to the board of supervisors a reduction of the required 
area or required width, or both, and is of the opinion there is a reasonable 
probability that prior to the submission of the final map for approval or the parcel 
map for filing with the county recorder, the required area or required width or both 
will be reduced by action of the board of supervisors, it may conditionally approve 
a tentative map having one or more lots with less than the required area or width, or 
both. 

B. Such approval of the tentative map shall not be effective unless and until 
the required area or required width or both are so reduced by the adoption of an 
ordinance by the board of supervisors and such ordinance has become effective and 
all lots in the division of land comply with Section 21.24.240, or with 21.24.240 as 
modified pursuant to Section 21.52.010. (Ord. 9071 § 7 (part), 1966: Ord. 7694 § 2, 
1959: Ord. 4478 Art. 5 § 71.5, 1945.) 

21.24.280 City boundary line to be lot line when. No lot shall be divided by a 
city boundary line. Each such boundary line shall be made a lot line. (Ord. 9071 § 7 
(part), 1966: Ord. 7345 § 6, 1958: Ord. 4478 Art. 5 § 73, 1945.) 

21.24.290 Frontage for lots. The alignment of streets shall be such as to 
provide frontage for lots in the division of land except as provided in Section 
21.24.280. (Ord. 9071 § 7 (part), 1966: Ord. 4478 Art. 5 § 72, 1945.) 

21.24.300 Minimum frontage. Wherever practical, lot frontage at the right- 
of-way line shall be: 

A. 40 feet or more, where a lot is oriented so that its side lot lines are radial 
or approximately radial to a turnaround or knuckle or to the convex side of a curved 
street centerline; and 

B. Equal to or greater than the average lot width, where a lot is not so 
oriented. (Ord. 10485 § 12, 1972: Ord. 4478 Art. 5 § 72.1, 1945.) 

21.24.310 Lot sideline angle. In all cases where practicable, the side lines of 
lots shall be at an approximate right angle to the street upon which such lots front. 
(Ord. 4478 Art. 5 § 75, 1945.) 

21-30 



21.24.320 



21.24.320 Flag lots. The advisory agency may disapprove the platting of flag lots 
where this design is not justified by topographic conditions or the size and shape of the 
division of land, or where this design is in conflict with the pattern of neighborhood 
development. If flag lots are approved, the access strip for each lot shall be at least 10 
feet in width where the strip is situated contiguous to other such access strips, so as to 
form a common driveway, and at least 15 feet in width, where the strip is not situated 
contiguous to other such access strips, unless the subdivision committee recommends 
the approval of lesser widths because of topographic conditions or the size and shape of 
a division of land. Each access strip shall be located so that, when improved as a 
driveway, the finished grade will not exceed 20 percent. The advisory agency may 
require that easements for ingress and egress be provided over common driveways for 
the benefit of the lots served. (Ord. 10485 § 13, 1972: Ord. 4478 Art. 5 § 72.2, 1945.) 

21.24.330 Additional parking area for commercial use. Wherever property in 
a division of land is to be devoted to commercial use, special consideration shall be 
given to automobile parking space independent of highway curbside parking. (Ord. 
9071 § 7 (part), 1966: Ord. 4478 Art. 5 § 74, 1945.) 

21.24.340 Residential subdivisions — Local park space obligation — 
Formula. A. The subdivider of a residential subdivision shall provide local park space 
to serve the subdivision, pay a fee in lieu of the provision of such park land in 
accordance with the provisions of Section 21.28.140, provide local park space 
containing less than the required obligation but developed with amenities equal in value 
to the park fee, or do a combination of the above in accordance with the requirements of 
this title. The extent of the local park space obligation to be satisfied by land, fees, land 
and amenities, or a combination of these, shall be determined by the following formula:

B. The approved number of dwelling units within a subdivision shall be the 
number of dwelling units approved in the tentative tract, except that where 
topographic conditions, the design of the subdivision, dedications, agreements, or the 
restrictions of other ordinances, statutes or regulations will not, in the opinion of the 
advisory agency, permanently prohibit construction of dwelling units to the maximum 
permitted by zoning, the advisory agency may determine the maximum number of 
dwelling units which can be placed in such subdivision, and shall base the approved 
number of dwelling units within the subdivision on such maximum number. 

C. For purposes of this Title 21, "local park space" may include, but shall not 
be limited to: publicly or privately owned playgrounds, riding and hiking trails, 
tennis, basketball or other similar game-court areas, swimming pools, putting greens, 
athletic fields, picnic areas, and other types of natural or scenic areas as recommended 
by the director of parks and recreation for passive or active recreation. 

D. If the advisory agency determines that the strict application of the equation 
set forth in this section to a particular subdivision would result in an inequitable 
dupHcation of local park space previously provided by a subdivider or his 
predecessors in interest for the benefit of the land comprising the subdivision, or in a 
duplication of fees previously paid for the acquisition or development of such 
facilities, the advisory agency shall adjust the computation of required park space to 
the extent necessary to eliminate such duplication. 

E. The provisions of this section and of Sections 21.24.350 and 21.28.140 
shall not apply to condominium projects which consist of the subdivision of air space 
in an existing residential building which is more than five years old (when no new 
units are added), or to single-family lots within a land division having a gross area 1 
acres or larger. (Ord. 2004-0023 § 1, 2004: Ord. 92-0064 §§ 1, 2, 1992; Ord.

Supp. #61,8-04 



21.24.350 



21.24.350 Residential subdivisions — Provision or local park sites. A. Upon 
ascertaining the local park space obligation to be fulfilled by the subdivider of a 
residential subdivision pursuant to Section 21.24.340, the advisory agency shall 
review the proposed subdivision, the park and recreational needs of the future 
inhabitants of the subdivision, and existing or potential neighboring park and 
recreational facilities to determine whether all or any portion of the local park space 
obligation should be satisfied by the provision of park space to serve the subdivision. 
If the advisory agency determines that park space should be provided, the advisory 
agency shall advise the subdivider of the design and location of such space, 

B. If the subdivision contains more than 50 lots, the subdivider shall provide 
the necessary park space as determined by the advisory agency. If such park space is 
less than the total park space obligation required by the provisions of Section 
21.24.340, the subdivider shall pay the park fees, in accordance with the provisions of 
Section 21.28.140, provide amenities to the park space equal in value to the park fees, 
or do a combination of both. 

C. If the subdivision contains 50 or fewer residential lots, provision of the 
park space designated by the advisory agency shall be at the option of the subdivider. 
If the subdivider elects to provide the park space designated by the advisory agency, 
the amount of park space provided shall be credited against the local park space 
obligation for the subdivision. The residual obligation, if any, shall be satisfied by the 
payment of park fees in accordance with the provisions of Section 21.28.140, the 
provision of amenities to the park space equal in value to the park fees, or a 
combination of both. If the subdivider elects not to provide the local space designated 
by the advisory agency, the entire local park space obligation shall be met by the 
payment of park fees. 

D. Determinations as to whether park space should be provided, and as to the 
design and location of such space and any amenities thereof, shall be made in 
accordance with the principles and standards for local park and recreational 



Supp. #61,8-04 21-32.2 



21.24.350 



facilities contained in the recreation element of the general plan, the additional 
provisions of this Title 21, and the recommendations of the director of parks and 
recreation. The subdivider shall install all improvements for streets abutting the 
park sites as required by this Title 21. 

E. 1. Each park site shall be physically suited for the use intended. Land 
which is made a part of a park site for subdivision design purposes, but which is 
physically unsuited for park use, shall be discounted when calculating the area of 
the park site provided pursuant to this section. The park space provided shall be 
calculated from the road right-of-way line and not from the centerline of an 
abutting street. 

2. Land intended for other than trail use shall have a maximum slope 
of three percent. If necessary, the site shall be graded by the subdivider to achieve 
this slope, in accordance with plans approved by the department of parks and 
recreation. However, land which has an average slope of more than three percent 
may be credited against the park dedication requirement where the director of 
parks and recreation finds that special circumstances exist which would make the 
acceptance of such land in the public interest. Except as otherwise provided in this 
section, the amount of credit against the park obligation in such cases shall be 
calculated as follows: 

Credit Against 
Park Site Slope Park Obligation 

0—3% 100% 

3.1 — 10% 87% 

10.1 — 20% 56% 

Over 20% 10% 

3. Greater credit for sites in excess of three-percent slope may be 
given where the director of parks and recreation finds that a site contains an 
exceptional visual, biotic or other natural resource. 

F If the board of supervisors determines that any of the proposed land to 
be provided is not suitable for park use, it may reject all or any portion of the offer to 
provide, and in that event the subdivider shall pay the appropriate fee in accord- 
ance with the provisions of Section 21.28.140. 

G. Nothing in this section shall be construed to relieve the subdivider from 
providing park or recreational space required by the Zoning Ordinance set out at 
Title 22 of this code, or by the provision of variances or permits granted pursuant to 
the Zoning Ordinance, nor shall any provision of this section be construed to 
require the countv to accept land for park purposes which is unsuited for park use.

21.24360 Alternate requirements — Radbum Plan subdivisions. In lieu of 
compliance with Sections 21.24.090, 21.24.110, 21.24.160, 21.24,170, 21.24.180, 
21.24.290, 21.24.310 and 21.24.330, the plan as submitted may comply with the 
requirements of this section when the advisory agency shall determine that the plan 
of subdivision submitted provides better for the preservation of the access of light 
and air, for safety, convenience, property values and general welfare of the commu- 
nity than would be provided by compliance with those sections herein enumerated. 
Such alternate requirements which are intended to authorize that type of subdivi- 
sion commonly designated as the "Radbum Plan of subdivision" are as follows: 

1 . A complete system of pedestrian walks in front of the lots, separate 
from the streets, completely serving all lots in the subdivision in such a direct 
manner, particularly in relation to schools serving the subdivision, that there will 
be little inducement or necessity for pedestrians to walk in the streets; 

2. A system of short dead-end streets at the rear of the majority of 
lots, to discourage instrusion of through traffic which can be confined to the 
relatively few through streets from which these dead-end streets branch, and which 
bound the super-blocks thus formed; 

3. A system of continuous park, of such size, shape and arrangement 
as to be useful in part for recreation, and at least equal to 0.033 acre per lot within 
each super-block, adjacent to all lots or the walks immediately in front of such lots, 
and not separated from the lots by any street for vehicular use; 

4. Effective restrictions binding on and for the benefit of the tract as a 
whole and enforceable by the property owners as a whole, providing that the lots 
served only by such dead-end streets may be used for single-family residence only, 
and providing that all such houses will be so located that the garage is accessible 
directly from the street, and the principal entrance of the house is accessible directly 
from the walk, that adequate space between buildings will be maintained, and that 
buildings shall not cover more than 35 percent of the area of each such lot; 

5. Where economically proper and feasible, business properties and 
multiple-dwelling properties located only upon the through streets bounding the 
super-blocks and served by adequate automobile parking space either off the street 
or by special design of the street, and, in case ofbusiness properties, easily accessible 
from aill parts of the tract by the system of walks above mentioned. 

B. Provided, that in no case shall any lot have an area of less than 4,000 
square feet; that every through street shall have a width of not less than 60 feet; that 
every such dead-end street shall be entered directly from a through street, shall have 
an adequate turning area at the dead end, and shall have a width of not less than 34 
feet; that vision clearance and curb construction at block comers be maintained as 
provided for in Section 21.24.110, even though the dedication lines so mapped may 
differ from the requirements of Sections 21.24.110 and 21.24.290; that in sdl cases of 
property fronting on such streets of reduced width or on walks, the distance 
between houses across such streets or walks shall be not less than 50 feet, and that 
where lots front upon such walks rather than upon streets, the side lines shall be, so 
far as practical, at a right angle to said walks instead of the streets. (Ord. 85-0194 § 3 
(part), 1985; Ord. 4478 Art. 5 § 76, 1945.) 



Supp. # 6. 3-90 21-34 



21.24.370 



21.24370 Divisions of land for purpose of lease only. A. The advisory 
agency may approve a tentative map of a division of land which does not comply in 
all respects with the requirements of Parts 1, 2 and 3 of this chapter if: 

1. The advisory agency finds: 

a. The division of land is for lease only, 

b. Because the lots are to be leased only and because of the 
situation and development or proposed development of the division of land and 
surrounding property, approval of the tentative map would not be detrimental to 
the public welfare or property of other persons in the vicinity thereof; 

2. On such tentative map, and on the final map or parcel map, there 
appear, in letters not less than one-fourth inch in height, the words: "DIVISION OF 
LAND FOR PURPOSE OF LEASE ONLY." 

B. A person shall not sell, mortgage, place a deed of trust or other lien upon 
any lot or other parcel in such division of land, or offer or contract to do so, unless 
such transaction would be in full compliance with all of the provisions of this Title 
21 and the Subdivision Map Act had such final map or such parcel map not been 
filed. 

C. The filing of such final map or of such parcel map authorizes the leasing 
of any lot shown upon such map. 

D. Except that the lots in a division of land for lease only need not comply 
with the provisions of Section 21.24.240, this section does not modify in any way 
any requirements in the Zoning Ordinance or any other ordinance or law as to area 
or width requirements. (Ord. 11127 § I, 1975: Ord. 10486 § 8, 1972; Ord. 9071 § 7 
(part), 1966: Ord. 7345 § 7, 1958: Ord. 4478 Art. 5 § 77, 1945.) 

21.24380 Condominiums and community apartment projects. In a division 
consisting of a condominium project as defined in Section 1350 of the Civil Code, 
or a community apartment project as defined in Section 11004 of the Business and 
Professions Code, maps of such subdivisions need not, but may, show the design of 
the buildings and manner in which the buildings or the airspace above the property 
shown on the map are to be divided. In all other respects, all of the provisions of this 
Title 21 shall apply to such a subdivision. (Ord. 1 1 127 § 2, 1975: Ord. 9071 § 7 (part), 
1966: Ord. 8500 § 2, 1963: Ord. 4478 Art. 5 § 79, 1945.) 

21.24390 Mobilehome divisions of land. A. The advisory agency may 
approve a tentative map of a division of land which does not comply in all respects 
with the requirements of Parts 1, 2 and 3 of this chapter if: 

1. The advisory agency finds: 

a. The division of land is for mobilehome purposes only, 

b. The units of space proposed on the tentative map are for 
mobilehomes and related facilities only and the development of a mobilehome 
park on the property included within the division of land is in conformance with 
the Zoning Ordinance set out at Tide 22; 

2. On such tentative map and on the final map or parcel map, there 
appear, in letters no less than one-fourth-inch in height, the words: **DIVIS10N OF 
LAND FOR MOBILE HOME PURPOSES ONLY." 

B. A person shall not use, lease, sell, mortgage, place a deed of trust or other 
lien upon a unit of space within a mobilehome division of land for any purpose 
other than a mobilehome and related facilities. 



21-35 Supp. #6.3-90 



21.24.390 



C Except that the units in a division of land for mobilehome purposes need 
not comply with the provisions of subsections A through D of Section 21.24.240, 
this section does not modify in any way any requirements in the Zoning Ordinance 
or any other ordinance or law as to area or width requirements. 

D, In a mobile home division ofland, the owners of the units of space which 
are occupied by mobilehomes and which may also be occupied by accessory uses 
will hold an undivided interest in the common areas which will in turn provide the 
necessary access and utility easements for the units. A note to this effect is required 
on the final map or parcel map. 

E. Title to the units and common areas in a mobilehome division ofland 
and control and maintenance of the common areas shall be similar to those for 
condominiums as contained in the Civil Code. (Ord. 1 1681 § 3, 1978: Ord. 4478 
Art. 5 §77.1, 1945.) 

21.24.400 Division of land adjacent to existing roads. A. If the advisory 
agency finds that the proposed division of land abuts an existing road which has 
improvements insufficient for the general use of the lot owners in the division of 
land and local neighborhood and drainage needs, it may disapprove the design of 
the division unless the subdivider improves or agrees to improve such road to the 
same standards required of roads within all divisions ofland by Chapter 21.32. 

B- Where a subdivider proposes to connect to an existing dead-end or cul- 
de-sac street in which a turnaround has been installed, the advisory agency may 
require the reconstruction of existing street improvements as a condition of such 
connection. If the subdivider makes or agrees to make the required improvements, 
all of the provisions of this Title 21 which apply to improvements and agreements 
to improve within a division ofland shall apply. (Ord. 85-0168 § 13, 1985; Ord. 
12408 § 1, 1981: Ord. 10485 § 14, 1972; Ord. 9204 § 4, 1966; Ord. 9071 § 7 (part), 
1966: Ord. 7912 § 1, 1961: Ord. 4478 Art. 5 § 78, 1945.) 

21.24.410 Coastal development permit required. When a subdivision lies 
within the boundaries of the coastal zone, as defined in Section 30103 of the Public 
Resources Code, the subdivider shall apply for a coastal development permit 
concurrently with the tentative map. The advisory agency shall approve a tentative 
map only if a coastal development permit has been approved for the land division.

2. As used in this Title 21, "park planning areas" means those 
geographical areas depicted on the 2004 park planning area map of unincorporated 
places and described in records contained in the department of parks and recreation. 

3. For the purposes of calculating fees in lieu of park land, the 
schedule of representative land values contained in subsection A 1 of this section 
shall apply to the following residential subdivision maps that are first advertised by 
the department of regional planning for hearing before either a hearing officer or the 
Regional Planning Commission on or after the effective date of the ordinance adding 
this language: 

a. Tentative maps; 

b. Tentative minor land division maps; 

c. Revised maps, as described in subsection B of Section 
21.62.030; and 

d. Reactivated maps, which are previously approved tentative 
maps that have expired and that must be processed as new tentative maps. 

The representative land values contained in subsection Al of this section shall be 
adjusted annually, effective July 1, by the department of parks and recreation, in 
consultation with the county auditor-controller as follows: calculate the percentage 
movement between March of the previous year and March of the current year in the 
Consumer Price Index (CPI) for all urban consumers in the Los Angeles, Anaheim, and 
Riverside areas, as published by the United States Government Bureau of Labor 
Statistics, adjust the representative land value per acre in each park planning area by 
said amount, and round to the nearest dollar. The adjusted representative land values 
shall apply to the above-referenced residential subdivision maps that are first advertised 
by the department of regional planning for hearing before either a hearing officer or the 
Regional Planning Commission on or after the respective July 1 adjustment date. 

B. Park fees shall be used only for the purpose of acquiring local park land or 
developing new or rehabilitating existing recreational facilities to serve the park 
planning area which includes the subdivision for which the fees were paid, or to ftjnd 
improvements for county-owned local park facilities located within city limits that, but 
for incorporation or annexation, were within, or would have been in, the park planning 
area in which the subdivision for which the fees were paid is located. The advisory 
agency shall waive the payment of fees required pursuant to this section, if it 
determines that it is improbable that such fijnds can be utilized for this purpose within a 
reasonable period of time after the map of the subdivision is filed with the county 
recorder. 

C. The department of parks and recreation shall develop a schedule specifying 
how, when, and where it will use the land or fees, or both, from each subdivision to 
develop park or recreational facilities within the applicable park planning area. Fees 
collected shall be committed within five years after the payment of the fees or the 
issuance of building permits on one-half of the lots created by the subdivision, 
whichever occurs later. If the fees are not committed, they, without any deducfions, 
shall be distributed and paid to the then record owners of the subdivision in the same 
proportion that the size of their lot bears to the total area of all lots within the 
subdivision. (Ord. 2004-0023 §2, 2004: Ord. 93-0070 § 1, 1993: Ord. 88-0069 § 1,

tation element of the General Plan, the primary purpose of which is to carry through 
traffic and provide a network connecting to the state highway system. 

5. The singular number includes the plural, and the plural the singular. 

C. The provisions herein for payment of a fee shall apply only if the bridge 
and/or major thoroughfare has been included in an element of the General Plan 
adopted by the board of supervisors at least 30 days prior to the filing of a map or 
application for a building permit on land located within the boundaries of the area 
of benefit. 

D. Payment of fees shall not be required unless any major thoroughfares 
are in addition to or a widening or reconstruction of any existing major thorough- 
fares serving the area at the time of the adoption of the boundaries of the area of 
benefit. 

E. Payment of fees shall not be required unless any planned bridge facility 
is a new bridge serving the area or an addition to an existing bridge facility serving 
the area at the time of the adoption of the boundaries of the area of beneflt. 

F. 1 . Action to establish an area of benefit may be initiated by the board 
of supervisors upon its own motion or upon the recommendation of the road 
commissioner. 

2. The board of supervisors will set a public hearing for each proposed 
area benefitted. Notice of the time and place of said hearing, including preliminary 
information related to the boundaries of the area of benefit, estimated costs, and 
the method of fee apportionment, shall be given pursuant to Section 65905 of the 
Government Code.

of supervisors shall adopt a resolution describing the boundaries of the area of 
benefit, setting forth the cost, whether actual or estimated, and the method of fee 
apportionment. A certified copy of such resolution shall be recorded with the county 
recorder. 

2. Such apportioned fees shall be applicable to all property within the 
area of benefit, and shall be payable as a condition of approval of a final map or 
as a condition of issuing a building permit for such property or portions thereof. 
Where the area of benefit includes lands not subject to the payment of fees pursuant 
to this section, the board of supervisors shall make provisions for payment of the 
share of improvement cost apportioned to such lands from other sources. 

3. Written protest will be received by the clerk of the board of 
supervisors at any time prior to the close of the public hearing. If written protests 
are filed by the owners of more than one-half of the area of the property to be 
benefitted by the improvement, and sufficient protests are not withdrawn so as to 
reduce the area represented by the protests to less than one-half of the area to be 
benefitted, then the proposed proceedings shall be abandoned and the board of 
supervisors shall not, for one year from the filing of said written protests, com- 
mence or carry on any proceedings for the same improvement under the provisions

the owners of more than one-half of the area of the property to be benefited are in 
favor of going forward with such improvement or portion thereof. 

H. Fees paid pursuant to this section shall be deposited in a planned bridge 
facility and/or major thoroughfare fund. A fund shall be established for each 
planned bridge facility project and/ or each planned major thoroughfare project. If 
the benefit area is one in which more than one bridge and/or major thoroughfare is 
required to be constructed, a separate fund may be established covering all of the 
bridge projects and/or major thoroughfares in the benefit area. Moneys in such 
fund shall be expended solely for the construction or reimbursement for construc- 
tion of the improvement serving the area to be benefited and from which the fees

500,001.00 — and up 29,400.00 + 2.50 percent of excess over 500,000.00 

The foregoing fee shall be reviewed annually by the director of public works. 
Beginning on July 1, 1997, and thereafter on each succeeding July 1st, the amount 
of each fee shall be adjusted as follows: Calculate the percentage movement 
between April of the previous year and March of the current year in the Consumer 
Price Index (CPI) for all urban consumers in the Los Angeles, Anaheim, and 
Riverside areas, as published by the United States Government Bureau of Labor 
Statistics, adjust each fee by said percentage amount and round up to the nearest 
dollar. Provided, however, no adjustment shall decrease any fee and no fee shall 
exceed the reasonable cost of providing services. When it is determined that the 
amount reasonably necessary to recover the cost of providing services is in excess 
of this adjustment, the director of public works may present fee proposals to the 
board of supervisors for approval. (Ord. 96-0059 § 1, 1996: Ord. 12392 § 3, 1981: 
Ord. 11169 § 1, 1975: Ord. 6347 § 1 (part), 1954: Ord. 4478 Art. 11 § 211, 1945.)

ing any improvement, for which fees are set in accordance with Section 21.36.010, 
exceed 135 percent of the established fee and the work has not been completed, and 
the director of public works determines that the cause of the inspection cost overrun 
is the result of the actions of the subdivider and/or his contractor(s) and/or subcon- 
tractor(s), then the director may require that the subdivider pay additional inspection 
fees for the facility being inspected in the amount equal to the actual cost incurred. 
(Ord. 96-0059 § 3, 1996.) 

2136.040 Plan check and inspection deposits or fees — Payment of 
deficiencies. If any deposit or fee made pursuant to Section 21.36.010 is less than 
sufficient to pay all of the costs of plan checking or inspection, the subdivider, upon 
demand of the Director of Public Works, shall pay an amount equal to the deficien- 
cy. If the subdivider fails or refuses to pay such deticiency upon demand, the county 
may recover the same by action in any court of competent jurisdiction. Until such 
de^ciency is paid in full the improvement shall be considered uncompleted. (Ord. 
96-0059 § 4, 1996: Ord. 11169 § 2, 1975: Ord. 4478 Art. 11 § 214, 1945.)

into a contract with a water utility, as defined in the water ordinance set out at 
Division 1 of Title 20 of this code, to construct water mains as required by this 
Title 21, which contract makes the county of Los Angeles a party thereto and 
provides that such contract may not be modified or rescinded without the consent 
of the county except as required by the Public Utilities Commission, and has 
deposited with such water utility security for the payment of such water utility 
which the county engineer finds adequate, the subdivider need not accompany his

form, possess the same contents and be processed in the same manner as a tentative 
tract map or a tentative minor land division map whichever is applicable, includ- 
ing, but not limited to, criteria for rejection, dedications and the imposition of 
conditions, except as hereinafter provided. (Ord. 86-0040 § 2 (part), 1986). 

2138.030 Fees required. Upon filing a vesting tentative map, the sub- 
divider shall pay the filing fee required for the filing of a tentative tract map as

B. Notwithstanding the above provisions, a permit, approval, time exten- 
sion and/or entitlement may be made conditioned or denied if any of the following 
are determined by the local agency: 

1 . Failure to do so would place the residents of the subdivision or the 
immediate community, or both, in a condition dangerous to their health or safety; 
or 

2. The condition or denial is required in order to comply with the 
mandates of either state or federal law. .. 

C. The vested rights created herein by the approval or conditional approval 
of a vesting tentative map shall lapse, expire and be of no force and effect if the final 
map, parcel map or grant of waiver is not approved by the legislative body, advisory 
agency or other entity authorized to grant approval prior to the time limits set forth 
in Section 21.38.050. If a final map, parcel map or grant of waiver is approved in 
compliance with said section, these vested rights shall be effective for an initial 
period of not to exceed one year thereafter. Prior to the expiration of the initial one- 
year period, the subdivider may apply for an additional one-year extension of the 
period of the vested right to the advisory agency. If the extension is denied, the 
subdivider may appeal the denial to the board of supervisors within 15 days after 
the action of the advisory agency. 

D- Where several final maps, parcel maps or grants of waiver are recorded 
on various phases of a development project covered by a single vesting tentative 
map, the aforesaid one-year time period shall run for each phase when the final 
map, parcel map or grant of waiver for that phase is recorded. The subdivider may 
file for a one-year extension as provided for in subsection C and appeal the denial of 
same in accordance therewith. 

E. Where a complete application for a building permit is submitted by the 
subdivider within the time periods set forth above, the vested rights conferred by 
this chapter shall continue in full force and effect until the expiration of that permit, 
or any valid extension of the permit which may be granted by the department of 
public works. 

F. The precise amount of fees required to be paid as a condition precedent 
to recording a map and/or completing a development shall be the amount in effect 
at the time of payment of fees. (Ord. 86-0040 § 2 (part), 1986). 

21^8.070 Development inconsistent with zoning — Conditional approval 
by advisory agency. When a subdivider files a vesting tentative map for a subdivi- 
sion whose proposed development is inconsistent with the Zoning Ordinance in 
existence at the time of filing, said inconsistency shall be so noted on the map. The 
advisory agency may deny such a vesting tentative map or may approve it condi- 
tioned on the subdivider obtaining the necessary change in the Zoning Ordinance 
in order to eliminate the inconsistency. If the change in the Zoning Ordinance is 
obtained, the approved or conditionally approved vesting tentative map shall 
confer the vested right to proceed with the development in substantial compliance 
with the change in the ordinance and the map as approved by the Advisory Agency. 
(Ord. 86-0040 § 2 (part), 1986).

21.52.010 Modification or waiver of provisions authorized when. A. 

Whenever, in the opinion of the advisory agency, the land involved in a subdivision 
is of such size or shape, or is subject to such title limitations of record or is affected 
by such topographical location or conditions, or is to be devoted to such usage, that it 
is impossible or impractical for the subdivider to conform fully to a regulation 
contained in this Title 21, the advisory agency may at the time of action on the 
tentative map of the subdivision modify the regulation, provided that in the case of 
each modification the advisory agency shall first find that a special, individual reason 
makes the strict letter of the regulation impossible or impractical of observance and 
that the modification is in conformity with the spirit and purpose of the Subdivision 
Map Act and of this title; and provided, further, that the advisory agency shall make 
a report in writing setting forth each modification and the facts relied upon for 
making the modification.

shall waive the provisions of this title and of Section 66473 of the Subdivision Map 
Act requiring disapproval of maps for failure to meet or perform state or local 
requirements or conditions, when the failure of a map submitted for approval is the 
result of a technical and inadvertent error which, in the determination of the advisory 
agency, the county engineer or the board of supervisors does not materially affect the 
validity of the map. Such waivers shall not result in the invalidation or negation of 
any substantive requirement of this title, the Subdivision Map Act, or any other 
ordinance, statute or regulation. 

C. The advisory agency or the board of supervisors may make modifications 
to regulations contained in this Title 21 including, but not limited to, exemption from 
park space requirements for land divisions where a housing permit for qualified

interest to accept or process applications for low and moderate income housing 
projects without one or more of the county fees required by Chapter 21.40 or by 
Chapter 21.44 or by Chapter 21.48 or by subsection C of Section 21.36.010 of

LOS ANGELES COUNTY CODE 



TITLE 22 
PLANNING AND ZONING 



The provisions codified in this code reflect changes made by all county ordinances up to 
and including Ordinance 2008-0012U, passed April 1, 2008. The latest ordinance amending 
Title 22 of the code is Ordinance 2007-0091, passed August 21, 2007. The latest ordinance 
making a zoning map change is Ordinance 2007-01 19Z, passed December 18, 2007. 

22-i Supp. # 76, 5-08 



PUBLISHER'S NOTE 

The Los Angeles County Code is organized by subject matter under an expandable, 
three-factor decimal numbering system which is designed to facilitate future changes 
with minimum disturbance to current regulations. Each section number includes in its 
sequence the title, chapter and section number. For example. Section 22,20.340 is 
Section 340 (.340) in Chapter 20 (.20) of Title 22. In most instances, sections are 
numbered by tens (.010, .020, .030, etc.), leaving nine vacant positions between 
original sections to accommodate new provisions. Chapters and titles are also 
numbered to provide for expansion. 

Following each section is a note indicating the section of Ordinance 1494 which is 
printed in that section. Changes made after Ordinance 12377 show the amendment 
history in that note. For amendments before Ordinance 12377, see the table of 
amendments for Ordinance 1494 set out in Appendix 1 of Title 22. 

A cross-reference table, locating current placement of all Ordinance 1494 provisions 
in the new code, is set out in Appendix 2 of Title 22. 

Footnotes to statutory provisions and to related code provisions in other code volumes 
appear at the end of each title. 

A subject-matter index covering all the provisions of this Title 22 and locating 
subjects by code section number is set out at the end of the title. 

A complete Ordinance List and Disposition Table is set forth in Volume 8 of the 
code; it lists all the county's ordinances, gives an outline of their contents and 
subjects, and indicates the chapter of the code where each ordinance's provisions 
appear.

creation by the ordinance set out in this Title 22 of the respective zones set forth 
herein, the board of supervisors has given due and special consideration to the

Angeles and in relation with established plans in the incorporated areas of the county 
in accordance with a well-considered master plan of land use for the development of

§ 106, 1927.) 

22.04.060 Powers of the commission and deputies. Whenever a power is

or a person authorized pursuant to law or ordinance by the officer, unless this title 
expressly provides otherwise. (Ord. 1494 Ch. 1 Art. 1 § 107, 1927.)

the principles and standards enumerated in Section 22. 1 6. 1 50, the commission, in 
determining its recommendation for a change of zone, shall consider whether or 
not the change of zone under consideration, if adopted, will result in a need for a 
greater water supply for adequate fire protection and, if so, what are the existing and

that the forester and fire warden or county engineer, or both, supply it with all facts, 
opinions, suggestions and advice which may be material to reaching a decision on 
any or all matters mentioned in this section. (Ord. 1494 Ch. 3 Art 2 § 309.3, 1927,) 

22 J6 J70 Amendments — Conditions for approyaL In making its recom- 
mendation relative to a proposed amendment other than a zone change, the

necessary to implement the general plan and/or that the public convenience, the 
general welfare or good zoning practice justifies such action. (Ord. 85-0009 § 4, 
1985: Ord. 1494 Ch. 3 Art 2 § 309.5, 1927.) 

22.16.180 Commission recommendation — Resolution reqoirements. A rec- 
ommendation by the commission relative to a zone change or amendment shall lie

Art 2 §309.7, 1927.)

that if the planning commission has recommended against the approval of an 
amendment other than a zone change, the board of supervisors shall not be 
required to take fiirther action. In case of a change of zone where the commission

of the commission to report within 40 days after the reference, or such longer period 
as may be designated by the board of supervisors shall be deemed to be approval of 
the proposed modification. (Ord. 85-0009 § 5, 1985.)

Sections: 

22.20.460 Uses and development standards. 



22.20.460 Uses and development standards. Property in Zone RPD may be 
used for: 

A. Any use permitted in Zone R-1 under the same limitations and conditions, 
including auxiliary and transitional uses, front, side and rear yards, garages and 
carports, and area requirements, and those provisions of Part 2 of Chapter 22.52 
which relate to Zone R-1. 

B. If a conditional use permit has first been obtained as provided in Part 1 of 
Chapter 22.56, property in Zone RPD may be used for a planned residential 
development, including a mobilehome park, subject to approval by the hearing 
officer, which will afford the same or lesser density of population or intensity of use 
than is specified in the zone. 

— It is the intent of planned residential development to promote residential 
amenities beyond those expected under conventional development, to 
achieve greater flexibility in design, to encourage well-planned 
neighborhoods through creative and imaginative planning as a unit, and to 
provide for appropriate use of land which is sufficiently unique in its 
physical characteristics or other circumstances to warrant special methods 
of development. In implementing planned development, it is further 
declared the purpose of this section to reduce developmental problems in 
hillside areas and to preserve areas of natural scenic beauty through the 
encouragement of integrated plarming, integrated design and unified 
control of development. 

— Approval by the hearing officer shall be based upon findings that the plan 
compiles with the intent of planned residential development as set forth in 
this subsection B, provides as well or better for light and air, for public 
safety and convenience, the protection of property values and the 
preservation of the general welfare of the community, than if developed 
as provided in subsecfion A of this section, and shall be subject to all of 
the following provisions: 

1. Area. The proposed development plan shall include, as a condition 
of use, a parcel of land containing not less than five acres. A development plan may 
be considered on a parcel of land less than five acres in area when such 

Supp. #70, 11-06 22-82 



22.20.460 



property is in Zone RPD and lias a common boundary witii property wiiich has been 
developed under an approved plan pursuant to this subsection B. In this case, the plan 
shall indicate that the proposed development will constitute an orderly extension in 
arrangement of buildings, facilities and open space throughout the combined parcels 
of land in addition to all the other requirements for approval of a conditional use 
permit. 

2. Density. When property in Zone RPD is developed pursuant 
to this subsection B, the number of units for each acre of the net area shall be equal 
to the number preceding the letter "U" in the suffix to the zoning symbol. 

The provisions of Part 17 of Chapter 22.52 and Part 18 of Chapter 
22.56, regarding housing permits for qualified projects, shall apply in Zone RPD. 

3. Type of Structures. 

a. Dwelling units may be in single-family detached, two- 
family or multiple residential structures, or they may be mobilehomes as defined in 
this Title 22 or factory-built houses as defined in the Health and Safety Code of the 
state, depending upon adjacent development and the compensating features of the 
development plan. 

b. The hearing officer may approve places of public 
assembly, recreational buildings and accessory buildings if for the primary use of 
persons residing within the planned development project and located so as not to be 
detrimental to adjacent properties. Distance between buildings shall not be less than 
10 feet for one-story and two-story structures, plus two additional feet for each story 
above the second. 

c. The hearing officer, in considering placement and type 
of structures, may modify or require a greater depth for yards than would be required 
if developed as provided in subsection A. Provisions regarding yards and distances 
between buildings shall not apply to mobilehomes within mobilehome parks. 

4. Open Space. Open space shall comprise not less than 30 
percent of the net area; provided however, that where the applicant submits evidence 
to the satisfaction of the hearing officer that the particular development will contain 
compensatory characteristics which will provide as well as better for planned unit 
development within the intent of this section, the hearing officer may modify said 
requirements. 

— Subject to the approval of the hearing officer, open space may 
include one or more of the following, designated for the use 
and enjoyment of all of the occupants of the planned 
residential development or appropriate phase thereof: 

a. Common open space developed for recreational 
purposes; 

b. Areas of scenic or natural beauty forming a portion of 
the proposed development; 

c. Present or future recreational areas of a noncommercial 
nature, including parks, playgrounds and beaches. Where specifically approved by 
the hearing officer, green fees or similar charges related to use of a golf course or 
similar open recreational use may be permitted, provided such charges are incidental

the character of said recreational facility; 

d. Present or future hiking, riding or bicycle trails; 

e. Landscaped portions adjacent to streets or highways 
which are in excess of minimum required rights-of-way; 

f. Other similar areas determined appropriate by the 
hearing officer. 

— In approving said open space, the hearing officer shall give 
consideration to the project to be developed, the characteristics of 
such open space, the manner in which the open space is to be 
improved and maintained, and such other information as the hearing 
officer deems pertinent. Reservation of open space shall be made a 
condition of approval. Such reservation shall be by public 
dedication, establishment of a maintenance district, common 
ownership, or other satisfactory means to insure the permanent 
reservation of, and where appropriate perpetual maintenance of, 
required open space. 

5. Building Coverage. Buildings shall not occupy more than 50 
percent of the net area, except that common recreational buildings are excluded from 
this building-coverage limitation. 

6. Parking. The provisions of Part 1 1 of Chapter 22.52 which 
specify the number and/or location of required parking spaces relating to dwelling 
units, places of public assembly and other recreational uses shall not apply when 
property in Zone RPD is developed pursuant to this subsection B. In granting a 
conditional use permit for a planned residential development, the hearing officer 
shall require automobile parking for such uses in an amount adequate to prevent 
traffic congestion and excessive onstreet parking; provided, however, in no event 
shall less than one covered parking space per dwelling unit, or less than 50 percent of 
the required number of parking spaces for public assembly or recreational uses 
specified in said Part 1 1 of Chapter 22.52 be permitted.

parking requirements, the requirements of Part 1 1 of Chapter 
22.52 shall be deemed to have been specified. 

7. Utilities. The applicant shall submit to the hearing officer, and 
it shall be made a condition of approval, satisfactory evidence that the applicant has 
made arrangements with the serving utilities to install underground all new facilities 
necessary to furnish service in the development. This requirement may be waived 
where it would cause undue hardship or constitute an unreasonable requirement. 

8. Development Schedule. The hearing officer shall approve a 
progress schedule indicating the development of open-space related to the 
construction of residential dwelling units, which shall become a condition of 
approval. Where development is to be completed in phases, the said development 
may, with the approval of the hearing officer, be coordinated between phases as 
approved in subdivision 1 1 of this subsection B. The hearing officer may modify.

1 1 . Distribution of Open Space. Planned development projects 
developed in phases shall be designated so that each successive phase will contain 
open space to independently qualify under the provisions of subdivision 4 of this 
subsection B; provided, however, that where the applicant submits development 
plans indicating to the satisfaction of the hearing officer that the proposed 
development will provide as well or better for planned unit development within the 
intent of this section, the hearing officer may approve a division of open space 
encompassing more than one phase. 

— Where a division of open space will encompass more than one 
phase, the applicant shall provide the hearing officer with a 
map indicating cumulative allocation and utilization of open 
space for each successive phase in each subsequent 
application.

22.28.340 



A. Any use permitted in Zone R-A, under the same limitations and 
conditions, including auxiliary and transitional uses, front, side and rear yards, 
parking and area requirements. 

B. If a conditional use permit has first been obtained, as provided in Part 1 of 
Chapter 22.56, property in Zone CPD may be used for a planned commercial 
development in which the hearing officer may approve any nonresidential use 
permitted in Zone C-1. In the conditional use permit, the hearing officer may modify 
any of the prescribed standards of development pertaining thereto. Such uses shall be 
subject to all of the following provisions: 

1. Need For. The hearing officer shall not grant a conditional use 
permit for a planned commercial development in Zone CPD unless it finds that the 
proposed commercial development is needed to serve the immediately adjacent area, 
and development has occurred, or is proposed, which will warrant such commercial 
development. 

2. Design. The arrangement of buildings, architectural design and the 
types of commercial uses shall be such as to minimize adverse influences on adjacent 
properties. 

3. Access and Parking. Adequate provision shall be made for vehicular 
access, parking and loading so as to prevent undue traffic congestion on adjacent 
streets and highways, particularly on local streets. 

4. Building Coverage. Buildings shall not occupy more than 40 
percent of the gross area. In calculating "gross area," any streets or highways on the 
perimeter of the parcel of land, or any major or secondary highway or parkway that 
traverses the property, or any area which is required to be dedicated, or a private 
easement given for any such street or highway, shall be excluded. 

5. Utilities. The applicant shall submit to the hearing officer, and it 
shall be made a condition of approval, satisfactory evidence that the applicant has 
made arrangements with the serving utilities to install underground all new facilities 
necessary to furnish service in the development. This requirement may be waived 
where it would cause undue hardship or constitute an unreasonable requirement. 

6. Signs. The hearing officer, in granting the conditional use permit, 
may allow advertising signs permitted in Zone C-l which he finds will be in keeping 
with the concept of planned development. 

7. Development features. The development plan shall include yards, 
walls, walks, landscaping and such other features as may be needed to make the 
commercial development attractive, adequately buffered from adjacent more 
restrictive uses, and in keeping with the character of the surrounding area. 

8. Development Schedule. The hearing officer shall approve a 
progress schedule including all phases of development and indicating that the 
improvements described in the development plan will be made prior to occupancy

of commercial structures. The hearing officer may modify without a hearing this 
condition pertaining to the development schedule based upon an affirmative 
showing, in writing of hardship. 

9. Tentative Subdivision Map. A tentative map shall be filed and 
made a condition of approval. (Ord. 85-0195 § 9 (part), 1985; Ord. 83-0161 § 15,

Zone R-A under the same limitations and conditions, including auxiliary and 
transitional uses, front, side and rear yards, parking standards, height limits and other 
development requirements specified in the respective zones. 

B. If a conditional use permit has first been obtained as provided in Part 1 of 
Chapter 22.56, property in Zone MPD may be used for a planned industrial 
development in which the hearing officer may approve any use permitted in Zone M- 
IV2, subject to all of the following provisions: 



• 



22-160.1 Supp. # 69, 8-06 



22.32.150 



1. Area. The proposed development plan shall include a parcel of land 
having, as a condition of use, not less than five acres. A development plan may be 
considered on a parcel of land less than five acres in area when such property is in Zone 
MPD and has a common boundary with property which has been developed under an 
approved plan pursuant to this subsection B. In such case, the plan shall indicate that the 
proposed development will constitute an orderly extension in arrangement of buildings, 
facilities and improvements throughout the combined parcels of land in addition to all 
the other requirements for approval of a conditional use permit. 

2. Compatibility. The proposed development, including the specific 
industrial uses proposed, shall not be in conflict with the objectives of the general plan 
for the area. 

3. Design. The structural improvements shall not detract from the 
established or anticipated character of the surrounding area, as indicated by schematic 
drawings and renderings to scale showing the architectural design of buildings and 
structures to be established. 

4. Access and Parking. Adequate provision shall be made for vehicular 
access, parking and loading so as to prevent undue traffic congestion on adjacent streets 
or highways, particularly local streets. 

5. Building Density. The floor area ratio shall not be greater than 1 .0, and 
the ground-floor area of buildings shall not exceed 60 percent of the gross area of the lot 
or parcel of land. This does not permit a reduction in the parking requirement specified 
in this Title 22. In calculating "gross area," any streets or highways on the perimeter of 
the parcel of land, or any major or secondary highway or parkway that traverses the 
property, or any area which is required to be dedicated or a private easement given for 
any such street or highway, shall be excluded. 

6. Utilities. The applicant shall submit to the hearing officer, and it shall 
be made a condition of approval, satisfactory evidence that the applicant has made 
arrangements with the serving utilities to install underground all new facilities necessary 
to furnish service in the development. This requirement may be waived where it would 
cause undue hardship or constitute an unreasonable requirement. 

7. Signs. The hearing officer, in granting the conditional use permit, may 
allow signs which it finds will be in keeping with the concept of plarmed development. 

8. Development Features. The development plan shall include yards, 
walls, walks, landscaping and other such features as may be needed to make the 
industrial development attractive, adequately buffered from adjacent more restrictive 
uses, and in keeping with the established or anticipated development of the surrounding 
area. 

9. Development Schedule. The hearing officer shall approve a progress 
schedule, including all phases of development, and indicating that the improvements 
described in the development plan will be made prior to occupancy of industrial 
buildings. The hearing officer may modify without a hearing this condition pertaining to 
the development schedule based upon an affirmative showing, in writing, of hardship. 

10. Tentative Subdivision Map. A tentative map shall be filed and made a 
condition of approval. 

C. If a conditional use permit has first been obtained as provided in Part 1 of 
Chapter 22.56, property in Zone MPD may be used for child care centers. (Ord. 2004- 
0030 § 17, 2004; Ord. 85-0195 § 9 (part), 1985; Ord. 1494 Ch. 2 Art. 4 § 274.1, 1927.)

"Whereas we have sought and have been granted a conditional use permit, 
permitting the use of the following described property (name of use permitted) to wit, 
(describe property); and 

"Whereas the whole of the said property (or a substantial portion thereof, if that 
be the fact) is in the unincorporated area of the County of Los Angeles and in Zone 
M-2V2, under Ordinance No. 1494, the Zoning Ordinance, which zone is designed to 
be used for the operation of large airports, aircraft manufacturing plants, aircraft 
modification, overhaul or repair plants, aircraft power plant testing stations, or other 
heavy industrial uses which cause loud noises, heavy vibrations, or other conditions 
which may be very detrimental to such trades and industries, and as a buffer zone for 
certain unzoned lawful aircraft uses referred to in said Ordinance; and 

"Whereas we have assured the County of Los Angeles that such heavy industrial 
uses will not be in any way detrimental to the use requested by us; 

"NOW, THEREFORE, as a condition (or one of the conditions) of the granting 
of said conditional permit, we hereby covenant and agree, both for ourselves and for 
our successors in interest, and assigns, that we will not, nor will any of us or any of 
our successors in interest, or assigns, seek damages for, or attempt to enjoin or 
complain of, the reasonable and necessary operation of any use permitted in Zone 
M-21/2, or of any unzoned lawful aircraft use and which use is not in violation of said 
Ordinance No. 1494, or of any other ordinance or law." 

D. The execution of or promise to execute such instrument may be deemed to 
be evidence that zoned aircraft or other heavy uses permitted in Zone M-lVi, or 
unzoned lawful aircraft uses, will not detrimentally affect such use.

MXD MIXED USE DEVELOPMENT ZONE 

Sections: 

22.40.5 1 Established — Purpose. 
22.40.520 Uses and development standards. 

22.40.510 Established — Purpose. A. Zone MXD is established to provide 
for planned mixed-use developments which may contain residential, commercial, 

22-203 Supp. » 6, 3-90 



22.40.510 



industrial and other such uses. By allowing greater flexibility in design and encour- 
aging innovative and creative planning, Zone MXD provides the opportunity to 
combine various land uses in well-planned developments which may contain 
multi-use buildings or several single-purpose buildings each containing a different 
use. It is the intent of the mixed use development zone to: 

1. Integrate a variety of housing densities with commercial, indus- 
trial or other uses, thus reducing transportation costs, energy consumption and air 
pollution, preserve precious land resources, and foster varied human environ- 
ments through unified planning, design and control of development; 

2. Implement the land use and special management area policies of 
the countywide General Plan; and 

3. Implement the policies and provisions of adopted coastal, com- 
munity and redevelopment plans. 

B. Approval by the hearing officer shall be based upon findings that the 
plan complies with the intent of planned mixed-use development as set forth in 
subsection A of this section, and provides as well or better for light and air, for 
public safety and convenience, the protection of property values and the preserva- 
tion of the general welfare of the community, than if developed as a Zone R-A use as 
provided in subsection A of Section 22.40.520. (Ord. 89-0150 § I, 1989; Ord. 85- 
0195 § 9 (part), 1985; Ord. 83-0072 § 3 (part), 1983.) 

22.40.520 Uses and development standards. Property in Zone MXD may 
be used for 

A. Any use listed as permitted, accessory, subject to director's review or 
subject to permit in Zone R-A under the same limitations, conditions and develop- 
ment standards including, but not limited to: accessory and transitional uses; yard, 
height, parking and area requirements; 

B. A mixed use development if a conditional use permit has first been 
obtained as provided in Pan 1 of Chapter 22.56. The hearing officer may approve 
any use or combination of uses listed as permitted, accessory, subject to director's 
review or subject to permit in Zones R-4, M-1, A-C and SR-D. In granting a 
conditional use permit, the hearing officer may impose any condition, in addition 
to those authorized by Section 22.56.100, which it believes necessary to foster the 
harmonious development of mixed land uses and to prevent any adverse impacts 
of uses internal or external to the development. Unless specifically waived or 
modified by the hearing officer, mixed use developments shall be subject to all of 
the following requirements: 

1. Area. 

a. The proposed development plan shall include, as a condition 
of use, a parcel of land containing not less than five acres. A development plan may 
be considered on a parcel of land less than five acres in area when: 

i. Such property is in Zone MXD and has a common 
boundary with property which has been developed under an approved plan pur- 
suant to this subsection B; 

ii. Such development plan is appropriate and necessary to 
implement land use and special management areas policies of the countywide 
General Plan; or 

iii. S uch development plan is appropriate and necessary to 
implement provisions of an adopted coastal, community or redevelopment plan. 



Supp. # 6. 3-90 22-204 



22.40.520 



b. In cases involving a parcel of less than five acres, the plan 
shall indicate that the proposed development will constitute an appropriate and 
orderly extension and/or arrangement of buildings, facilities and open space, in 
addition to all the other requirements for approval of a conditional use permit. 

2. Building Coverage and Density. Buildings shall not occupy more 
than 50 percent of the net area, nor shall the floor area ratio for a lot or parcel of land 
exceed 2.0. 

3. Design and Development Features. Site plans and preliminary 
architectural plans shall show that the arrangement of uses and buildings, the 
architectural design of all structures, and the development features of the proposed 



22-204.1 Supp. #6.3-90 



22.40.520 



project constitute a well-planned development which does not detract from or have 
any adverse impacts on the residents or land in the surrounding area. To accom- 
plish this, such plans shall include yards, walls, walks, landscaping, open space, 
buffer areas and other similar features. 

4. Open Space. Open space shall comprise not less than 30 percent of 
the net area; provided, however, that where the applicant submits evidence to the 
satisfaction of the hearing officer that the particular development will contain 
compensatory characteristics which will provide as well or better for planned 
mixed use development within the intent of this section, the hearing officer may 
modify said requirements. 

— Subject to the approval of the hearing officer, open space may 
include one or more of the following, provided that they are 
designated for the use and enjoyment of all the occupants of the 
planned mixed use development or appropriate phase thereof; 

a. Common open space developed for recreational purposes; 

b. Areas of scenic or natural beauty forming a portion of the 
proposed development; 

c. Present or future recreational areas of a noncommercial nature, 
including parks, playgrounds and beaches. Where specifically 
approved by the hearing officer, green fees or similar charges 
related to use of a golf course or similar open recreational use may 
be permitted, provided such charges are incidental to operation of 
said facilities, are not primarily commercial in nature, and do not 
alter the character of said recreational facility; 

d. Present or future hiking, riding or bicycle trails; 

e. Landscaped portions adjacent to streets or highways which are 
in excess of minimum required rights-of-way; 

f. Other similar areas determined appropriate by the hearing 
officer. 

— In approving said open space, the hearing officer shall give consid- 
eration to the project to be developed, the characteristics of such 
open space, the manner in which the open space is to be improved 
and maintained, and such other information as the hearing officer 
deems pertinent. Reservation of open space shall be made a condi- 
tion of approval. Such reservation shall be by public dedication, 
establishment of a maintenance district, common ownership, or 
other satisfactory means to ensure the permanent reservation of, 
and where appropriate perpetual maintenance of, required open 
space. 

5. Building Design. Buildings may be designed for single or multiple 
use. Buildings designed for multiple use shall provide adequate separation between 
different uses to ensure their compatibihty. There shall also be adequate spacing 
between buildings to ensure safety and compatibility. Special attention shall be 
given where residential uses are developed in proximity to commercial or indus- 
trial uses. Building heights shall be established to conserve land, enhance solar 
access, create visual landmarJcs, and protect privacy. 

6. Landscaping. 

a. All portions of the lot or parcel of land exclusive of structures, 
access roads and other similar facilities shall be landscaped and maintained in a 
neat, clean and healthful condition. Special attention shall be given to landscaping 

22-205 



22.40.520 



and screening of parking lots and loading areas. This shall include proper pruning, 
mowing of lawns, weeding, removal of litter, fertilizing, replacement of plants when 
necessary, and the regular watering of all plantings by means of a fixed and 
permanent water system consisting of piped water lines terminating in an appropri- 
ate number of sprinklers and/or hose bibs to insure a sufficient amount ofwater for 
plants within the landscaped area. Where the watering system consists of hose bibs 
alone, these bibs shall be located not more than 50 feet apart within the required 
landscaped area. Sprinklers used to satisfy the requirements of this provision shall 
be spaced to assure complete coverage of the required landscaped area. 

b. A landscaping plan shall be submitted to and approved by 
the hearing officer. Native and/or fire and drought resistant plant materials shall be 
used to the greatest extent possible. 

7. Residential Density. When property in Zone MXD is developed 
pursuant to this subsection B, the number of units for each acre of the net area shall 
be equal to the number preceding the letter "U" in the suffix to the zoning symbol. 

8. Utilities. The applicant shall submit to the hearing officer, and it 
shall be made a condition of approval, satisfactory evidence that the applicant has 
made arrangements with the serving utilities to install underground all new facili- 
ties necessary to furnish service in the development. This requirement may be 
waived where it would cause undue hardship or constitute an unreasonable 
requirement. 

9. Parking and Access. 

a. The provisions of Part 1 1 of Chapter 22.52 which specify the 
number and/or location of required parking spaces relating to dwelling units, places 
of public assembly, commercial or industrial uses and other uses shall not apply 
when property in Zone MXD is developed pursuant to this subsection B and where 
the hearing officer specifies different parking standards. 

Where the hearing officer specifies different parking standards in grant- 
ing a conditional use permit for a planned mixed use development, the hearing 
officer shall require parking for such development in an amount adequate to 
prevent traffic congestion and excessive on-street parking; provided, however, in 
no event shall less than one parking space per dwelling unit, or less than 50 percent 
of the required number of parking spaces for public assembly, commercial or 
industrial uses specified in said Part 11 of Chapter 22.52 be permitted. Special 
attention shall be given to the parking needs of residents, visitors, employees, 
customers and other persons using the site. 

b. Where the hearing officer fails to specifically designate differ- 
ent parking requirements, the requirements of Part 11 of Chapter 22,52 shall be 
deemed to have been specified. 

c. There shall be adequate provision for and separation of 
different transportation modes including pedestrian, bicycle, automobile and 
truck. Provision shall also be made for public transportation facilities where 
appropriate. 

10. Signs. The hearing officer, in granting the conditional use permit, 
may allow specific signs which it finds will be in keeping with the concept of

certain geographic areas within the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County. 
(Ord. 93-0047 § 1, 1993: Ord. 87-0130 § 1, 1987: Ord. 83-0065 § 5, 1983: Ord. 1494 
Ch. 9 Art. 5 §905.1, 1927.) 

22.44.100 Development restrictions. A. Except as otherwise expressly 
provided within a community standards district, property may be used for any 
purpose permitted in the basic zone to which this district is added, subject to the 
same limitations and conditions. Where the regulations of a community standards 
district differ from any other provisions in this Title 22, with the exception of 
qualified projects allowed by Part 17 of Chapter 22.52 and Part 18 of Chapter 22.56, 
such regulations shall supersede any contrary provisions as specified in said district. 

B. Regulations within a community standards district shall be divided into 
three categories: 

1. Community-wide Development Standards. Standards which apply 
to the entire community; 

2. Zone-specific Development Standards. Standards which apply only 
to specific zones within the community. Where the zone specific development 
standards differ from the community-wide development standards, such standards 
shall supersede the community-wide standards; 

3. Area-specific Development Standards. Standards which apply only 
to specific areas of a community standards district. Where the area-specific 
development standards differ from either the community-wide or zone-specific 
development standards, such area-specific standards shall supersede all others. (Ord. 
2006-0063 § 17, 2006; Ord. 99-0101 § 7, 1999; Ord. 83-0065 § 6, 1983; Ord. 1494

the surrounding residential neighborhood. This chapter is adopted pursuant to 
Section 700 of the East Compton Community Redevelopment Plan. 

B. Description of District. The East Compton Community Standards District 
is located approximately 13 miles southeast of the Los Angeles Civic Center. The 
district is situated in the midst of a larger unincorporated area which is bounded by 
the cities of Lynwood to the north. Paramount to the east, and Compton to the south 
and west. Containing 58 acres, the district consists predominantly of properties 
adjacent to Atlantic Avenue and Compton Boulevard and is coterminous with the 
boundaries of the East Compton Community Redevelopment Plan. The district

22.44.113 Agua Dulce Community Standards District. A. Intent and 
Purpose. The Agua Dulce Community Standards District is established to protect 
the secluded rural character of the community, to enhance the community's unique 
appeal, and to avoid the premature need for costly linear service systems such as 
sewers and water systems within the community. There have been a number of 
studies of Agua Dulce and its existing service systems. These studies have shown 
that, in 1983, 71 percent of the existing parcels were two acres in size or larger, 
and that increased densities might require expensive public sewage and water 
systems. The Santa Clarita Valley Areawide General Plan contains policy which 
clearly define standards for the future development of Agua Dulce. 

B. Description of District Boundaries. Beginning at the northeast corner of 
Section 5 T5N R13W; thence south along the eastern border of said Section 5, 8.

Purpose. The Topanga Canyon Community Standards District is established to 
implement certain policies related to small lot subdivision development contained in 
the Malibu Local Coastal Program Land Use Plan. The district will establish 
development standards in hillside and other areas that lack adequate infrastructure or 
that are subject to the potential hazards of fire, flood or geologic instability. 
Preservation of important ecological resources and scenic features will also be 
accomplished through the use of this district. 

B. District Boundary. The boundaries of the district are as shown on the map 
following this section. 

C. Definitions.

5, Township 1 South, Range 16 West, S.B.B.M. located south of the coastal zone 
boundary. Lots created by a parcel map are exempt from these provisions. 

D. Development Standards. The following provisions apply to all land within 
small lot subdivisions, as defined in this section: 

1. Slope Intensity Formula. Construction of residential units on a lot or 
parcel of land of less than one acre shall be subject to the following: 

a. The maximum allowable gross structural area of a residential 
unit to be constructed on a building site shall be determined by the following formula: 

GSA = (A/5) X r(50-SV351 + 500 

Where: GSA = the allowable gross structural area of the permitted 
development in square feet. The GSA shall be interpreted to include the total floor 
area of all enclosed residential and storage areas, but not to include vent shafts, 
garages or carports designed for the storage of autos. 

A = the area of the building site in square feet. The building site is defined 
by the applicant and may consist of all or a designated portion of the one or more lots 
comprising the project location. All permitted structures must be located within the 
designated building site. 

S = the average slope of the building site in percent as calculated by the 
formula: 

S = lxL/AxlOO 

Where: S = average natural slope in percent. 

1 = contour interval in feet, at not greater than 25-foot intervals, resulting 
in at least five contour lines. 

L = total accumulated length of all contours lines of interval "I" in feet. 

A = the area of the building site in square feet. 

b. All slope calculations shall be based on natural, not graded 
conditions. Maps of a scale generally not less than one inch equals 10 feet (1"=10'), 
showing the building site and exisfing slopes, prepared by a licensed surveyor or 
registered professional civil engineer, shall be submitted with the application. If slope 
is greater than 50 percent, enter 50 for S in the GSA formula.

22.44.119 



c. The maximum allowable gross structural area (GSA) as calculated 
above may be increased as follows: 

i. Add 500 square feet or 12.5 percent of the total lot area, 
whichever is less, for each lot which is contiguous to the designated building site, 
provided that such lot(s) is (are) combined with the building site, and all potential for 
residential development on such lot(s) is permanently extinguished. 

ii. Add 300 square feet or 7.5 percent of the total lot area, 
whichever is less, for each lot in the vicinity of (e.g., in the same small lot 
subdivision) but not contiguous with the designated building site, provided that such 
lot(s) is (are) combined with other developed or developable building sites and all 
potential for residential development on such lot(s) is permanently extinguished. 

d. The floor area requirement for single-family residences 
contained in Section 22.20.105 shall not apply. 

e. All residences approved in small lot subdivisions by the slope 
intensity formula shall be subject to an improvement condition requiring that any 
future additions or improvements to the property shall be subject to an additional 
review by the director. 

2. The provisions of Section 22.48.060 shall not apply. 

3. The provisions of Section 22.48.080 shall not apply.

director shall not consider requests for modification. 

b. Any modifications of development standards shall be 
considered only through the variance procedures contained in Part 2, Chapter 22.56 of 
this code. The maximum allowable gross structural area as determined by the slope 
intensity formula shall not be subject to modification. 

6. Repair. Any single-family residence, nonconforming due to 
standards of development contained in this community standards district, which is 
damaged or partially destroyed may be restored to the condition in which it was 
immediately prior to the occurrence of such damage or destruction, provided that all 
reconstruction shall be started within one year from the date of damage and be 
pursued diligently to completion, after complying with all other applicable laws. (Ord. 
2002-0063 § 2, 2002: Ord. 90-0133 § 1, 1990; Ord. 90-0101 § 1, 1990; Ord. 90-0061 §
