Zoning Advisory Committee (ZAC)
The Director of Planning announces the re:code LA Zoning Advisory Committee (ZAC)

The following 21 Zoning Advisory Committee (ZAC) members will play a vital role in the re:code LA effort by providing guidance on zoning policy direction. Represented interests include academia (environmental, transportation, and design), neighborhood organizations, social activism, business, and development. The ZAC members possess valuable expertise and unique perspectives on zoning and planning in the City of Los Angeles. The re:code LA team looks forward to working with this outstanding team in the upcoming years.

We received 140 applications, but unfortunately we can only appoint a limited number of individuals. Therefore we were not able to select some extremely talented, experienced, and respected people, in most cases because there was already sufficient representation from the same interest or region of the City.

The re:code LA team would like to thank all of these applicants for being willing to lend their time and expertise to this effort, and look forward to working with them other ways.

re:code LA is the first comprehensive update to the Los Angeles Zoning Code since 1946. This five year initiative aims to develop a modern and user-friendly Code in order to create livable communities, encourage sustainable development, and foster economic vitality.
