Description

This project is an amendment to Title 22 of the County Code, Planning and Zoning, to establish a Rural Outdoor Lighting District for areas of unincorporated Los Angeles County. The proposed Ordinance will establish the District with regulations that will conserve energy and resources and promote dark skies for the enjoyment and health of humans and wildlife, while permitting reasonable uses of outdoor lighting for nighttime safety and security. The regulations include limitations on allowable light trespass, fully shielding outdoor lighting, and imposes maximum heights of fixtures. The draft ordinance includes requirements for street lighting in rural areas, outdoor recreation facilities and signs. The draft map depicts areas located within the proposed District.
For more information contact the Ordinance Studies Section or go to Rural Outdoor Lighting District Ordinance at http://planning.lacounty.gov/view/rural_outdoor_lighting_district_ordinance/. For more information about adopted plans (including a complete list) go to: http://planning.lacounty.gov/plans/adopted.
UPDATED on 10/29/14 to remove from Santa Monica Mountains Coastal Zone following certification of plan by Coastal Commission.
