Planning & Land Use



Mission Statement

The PLU Committee seeks to notify stakeholders of important land use projects and permitting issues in the Encino community. The PLU Committee works to thoroughly understand proposed developments, their benefits and drawbacks, and hear stakeholder comments, in order to provide salient feedback to the project developer and the Encino Neighborhood Council Board (ENC). The ENC will consider the recommendations of the PLU Committee as the basis to potentially provide a Community Impact Statement (CIS), or similar, to City Council District 4 and appropriate city agencies, including the Los Angeles City Council, on projects that affect Encino and surrounding neighborhoods.
