"[T]he Los Angeles Department Planning released new details for its twin updates of the Central City and Central City North community plans - collectively known as DTLA 2040," reports Steven Sharp.

"The plans, when adopted, will effectuate zone changes allowing Downtown to accommodate 125,000 new residents and 55,000 new jobs through the year 2040 - representing 20 percent of the City's anticipated population growth in just one percent of its land area," according to Sharp.

The difference between this version of the plan and the draft released in June 2019 is unclear, but the plan is set to make the rounds of public hearings before consideration for approval by the City Council sometime near the end of 2020. As noted in earlier coverage, the DTLA 2040 plan is the first time the city will use a new zoning code system to implement the vision laid out by the first in a wave of community planning efforts.
