The Department of Regional Planning provides land use planning services to the residents and business located in the 2,600 square miles of unincorporated Los Angeles County. This past year, we completed the County’s General Plan, which was adopted by the Board of Supervisors, and a significant update to our Zoning Code, simplifying and making it much more user-friendly.
In November, we launched EPIC-LA, our new electronic permitting system. The system allows applicants to submit plans and payments electronically and track their projects online. The Department’s management team will also use the system to monitor our performance and to identify areas of customer service enhancement.
Finally, the department is contributing significantly to major countywide initiatives on homelessness/housing, as well as sustainability. Please visit our website frequently, planning.lacounty.gov, where the content is updated to keep you informed and provide quality data. We look forward to working with all stakeholders on new projects in the coming year.
