The Mid-City Recovery Redevelopment Plan contains development standards regarding permitted land uses, density, setbacks and sensitivity to historic sites and structures. Developers and contractors are strongly advised to contact Steven Jones, Sr. City Planner at (213) 368-0614 early in the process in order to prevent last minute difficulties.
Sign permit applications must be routed to CRA/LA staff for review and approval prior to installation. Please consult the Mid-City Recovery Redevelopment Plan for complete details on the information provided herein.
