Los Alamitos approves changes to zoning

At its regular meeting on Monday, October 21, the Los Alamitos City Council approved an ordinance to update the City’s zoning code and zoning code map (pdf) to reflect changes made in the City’s general plan as part of an update begun in 2015.

Notable changes that will take effect following the second reading of the ordinance include:

  • clarifying that the Professional Office General Plan designation allows retail and service commercial uses in addition to office use;
  • folding limited industrial use designation into the planned industrial designation;
  • creating a town center mixed-use zoning designation;
  • addition of live/work provisions and a live/work overlay zone (in Old Town East);

A second reading of the ordinance will take place at the regular Council meeting in November.
