A BIT OF HISTORY...
Leona Valley was the first community to enact a Community Standards District back in 1989. Our Town Council did not even exist yet, so the preparation of the CSDs was done by the Leona Valley Improvement Association, primarily Mary Ann Floyd. She put together a small booklet of over 20 pages to convince L.A. County of the necessity of protecting our rural lifestyle. She was so successful that most rural areas in the unincorporated county now have CSDs. Her presentation, which is a nice walk down memory lane in 1989 and includes some great old photos of Leona Valley, can be downloaded from the FILE section at the bottom of this page.
Los Angeles Regional Planning is in the process of preparing new and revised CSDs for all of the Antelope Valley Rural Town Councils. They have designed a new website to make it easier for everyone to be a part of the process. You can find all their information here: http://planning.lacounty.gov/site/avcsd/.
The LV Town Council Land Use Committee has worked with Regional Planning for many years to formulate CSDs that best represent the concerns of our community. A draft proposal has been completed and can be found on their website link above.
The L.A. County Regional Planning Commission approved the CSDs at their hearing on December 9, 2020. It was also approved by the L.A. County Board of Supervisors at their April, 2021 meeting. Now it will be reviewed by County Counsel and then submitted back to the Board for final approval. Once they have voted approval it will go into effect in 30 days.
If you have questions or concerns about the proposed CSDs you can contact the Town Council at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have concerns or ideas about how our community should look, there are multiple ways you can communicate with the County through their website. They even have a map where you can click on particular addresses to indicate likes or dislikes. They have links to our existing CSDs, as well as our new proposed CSD which the Town Council has worked on for the past ten years.
Files coming soon.
