 BMO/BHO Letter of Determination and Approved Ordinance

Accordingly, the Department of City Planning has issued a Letter of Determination notifying interested parties of the Commission’s decision. The letter includes the text of the ordinance as approved by the Commission, as well as findings of fact in support of the Commission’s decision. On July 14, 2016, the Los Angeles City Planning Commission approved and recommended that the City Council adopt an ordinance amending the Baseline Mansionization and Baseline Hillside Ordinances (BMO and BHO), which regulate development in single-family residential zones citywide.

The Department has also prepared a revised Questions and Answers document that reflects the Commission’s approved ordinance.

The SmartMarket Report

The report is commissioned by AIA to document the positive economic impact of investing in the design and construction of healthier buildings from the perspective of owners, architects, and human resources professionals.

This groundbreaking market study makes the connections between design and health better known to the industry and the public by benchmarking how the industry is designing and building with health in mind, how the healthcare and human resources community is making connections between design and health and productivity, and how people are learning about the impacts of buildings on their health and well-being.
