New Planning Rules For LA?

A new set of principles and findings to guide future planning in the city has reportedly been giving to planning staff and decision makers.

"An email going around the Planner circles gives an outline of new LA City Planning Principles/ Findings that are intended to create a better planned City."

Among the findings:

"Demand a walkable city...Offer basic design standards, e.g. eschew blank walls and street front pkg lots...Require density around mass transit (and discourage new density where we anticipate no mass transit will be involved.) Question I think it raises is: will that standard (or ban) be applied to streets/areas that are only served by buses, and not light rail/subway..."
