The Specific Plan is a tool to build economic vitality in the historic Mission District. The Mission District Specific Plan incorporates the collective knowledge of and vision for one of Southern California’s most important historic areas, San Gabriel Mission District, the birthplace of the Los Angeles region.
Community members and district stakeholders were invited to participate in the process of developing the Specific Plan. This plan reflects the community-based concepts and design for the District that resulted from meaningful public involvement. The Specific Plan addresses the economic vitality of the District, consolidates and builds upon previous planning efforts, the preservation of cultural landmarks and architectural treasures, and the District’s future development.
