URBAN PLANNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM IN LOS ANGELES: AN OVERVIEW

By Xueming Chen

Abstract

This paper gives an overview of the urban planning management system in Los Angeles, United States. This system consists of institutional subsystem, legal subsystem, operational subsystem, and technical subsystem. The City of Los Angeles Planning Department carries out its urban planning responsibilities in accordance with the General Plan Guidelines promulgated by the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research. The planning process has a good balance between government activities and citizen participations. The City’s advanced technical tools, including internet-based Zoning Information and Map Access System and online filing system, have fostered the public interaction with the planning process. The City is recommended to incorporate more market-based planning measures in the future.urban planning management system, general plan, zoning, subdivision
