Name: LA Planning Citywide Sign Ordinance - Submit Comments
Date: December 10, 2020 - January 29, 2021
Event Description:
In late 2019 the Los Angeles City Council adopted a detailed set of instructions directing Los Angeles City Planning to revise the proposed Citywide Sign Ordinance (Council File # 11-1705). These instructions requested specific amendments to the December 2017 draft ordinance, including but not limited to, the introduction of a new Sign District tier, enhanced sign reduction standards, and changes to off-site sign relocation agreements which prioritizes public property.

In response, City Planning has released a revised draft of the proposed 
Citywide Sign Ordinance for public comment. The proposed Citywide Sign Ordinance is a comprehensive effort to consolidate and modernize the current sign regulations in the Zoning Code.

City Planning has drafted a 
fact sheet outlining the key components and substantive changes made to the draft ordinance. A FAQ has been included in the fact sheet to address common questions and further detail the changes requested and proposed.

The original framework of the 2017 draft ordinance remains largely unchanged, however substantial revisions have been made to provisions on Sign Districts and relocation agreements to address the Council instructions as well as technical corrections throughout. In addition, the staff recommendation report to the City Planning Commission will expand on the provisions included in the draft ordinance and the additional options available for certain provisions that were requested as part of the 2019 Council instructions.

Members of the public who wish to submit comments can do so by emailing In order for comments to be considered in the staff recommendation report, they must be submitted no later than Friday, January 29, 2021. The proposed Citywide Sign Ordinance is tentatively scheduled for consideration by the City Planning Commission in 2021.
