Ensuring Continued Protection for the Santa Monica Mountains' Habitats and Environmental Resources
Posted: December 3, 2020, 4:30 p.m.

A message from LA County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl:

"At this week’s Board meeting, we approved the updated North Area Plan for the Santa Monica Mountains, featuring robust habitat protections and standards that focus and regulate development in appropriate locations.

The Santa Monica Mountains are home to one of the world’s largest and most significant Mediterranean ecosystems. Habitat loss and fragmentation pose serious threats to the area’s native species and biodiversity. Furthermore, given the area’s high fire risk, we need to be smarter about how and where development occurs in the Wildland-Urban Interface.

The guiding principle for this project has always been, “Let the land dictate the type and intensity of use.” This comprehensive update to the North Area Plan and the Community Standards District will strengthen existing policies and add new provisions to ensure the continued protection of environmental resources.

In addition to the dedicated LA County staff at the Department of Regional Planning, I want to express my gratitude for the residents of the Santa Monica Mountains, who have always been the driving force in preserving the mountains for the enjoyment and benefit of everyone in Los Angeles."
