Community Standards District Revision Committee

BOARD OF SUPERVISORS UNANIMOUSLY APPROVE REVISED COMMUNITY STANDARDS DISTRICT!

March 4, 2014:  In effort to keep Agua Dulce rural and equestrian-friendly, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a revision to Agua Dulce's Community Standards District, part of the county’s Title 22 - Planning and Zoning of the Los Angeles County Code.  

Being part of Los Angeles County, a gigantic, urban, metropolitan county, Community Standards Districts allow small communities like Agua Dulce to establish their own development standards and set of regulations that protect and preserve their unique community characteristics.  The revised standards approved by the Board of Supervisors on March 4, 2014 will maintain low density development, minimize urban infrastructure, protect sensitive resources, maintain and enhance the pedestrian and equestrian trail system, and preserve the archeological, historical, agricultural, equestrian, cultural, and geologic features that are unique to Agua Dulce.  A special thanks to Supervisor Antonovich for supporting the community’s intent to strengthen the standards to maintain our distinctive rural character.  The community of Agua Dulce has been working on the revisions for many years, and the Agua Dulce Town Council is proud the new standards are finally in place for protection and preservation of our distinctive lifestyle.



WHAT IS A CSD?  
Los Angeles County Code allows a community to implement special development standards to more closely control the growth and change within the community. These communities are called Community Standards Districts and their community standards supersede the general provisions of County Code. In 1985, the residents of Agua Dulce adopted a few broad standards and guidelines with the intent of protecting our unique environment.  
 
WHY IS THE CSD BEING REVISED?  
Our small town has experienced significant growth in the recent past from both individual and group development projects. The existing CSD document was written many years ago in order to provide broad guidelines for preserving the rural character of this community. Due to the ongoing need to maintain a balance between community growth and preservation of our rural lifestyle, the CSD has been reviewed and a revised draft created based on input gathered over the last ten years. Changes have been incorporated in the current CSD draft in order to formalize past recommendations and provide guidelines that effectively address the current development environment.  
 
 
The CSD Revision Committee appreciates your community participation and partnership in developing a final document. If you have questions, please contact either of the Co-Chairs of the Committee: Lorene Cangiano at lcangiano@chomg.com or Mary Johnson at maryjohnson767@gmail.com
