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.
