The mission of Planning and Land Use Committee is to receive and provide notice to affected stakeholders of the proposed issues under its purview; research each issue in an effort to develop a thorough understanding of any given proposal; notice to all parties on all sides of any proposal; provide ample and balanced opportunity to be heard; balance the interest of the stakeholders and the community at large; to make specific recommendations to the SONC and the City of Los Angeles regarding approval, disapproval, or modification of issues that come before it.

The document "Orange Line Transit Neighborhood Plan" was presented at the Vision Committee meeting of April 4, 2024. Click here to view the presentation.

The document “A Vision for Sherman Oaks 2020 – Input to the Sherman Oaks Community Plan Update” was developed by the Vision Sub-Committee and community members in public meetings over a period of eight years.  The studies grew out of a need to understand the potential of our community and the specific benefits that would enhance the lives of those that live, work, and visit Sherman Oaks.  The document can be reviewed below.

Agenda Requests

The Planning and Land Use (PLUM) and Vision Sub-Committee conducts its business by reviewing and prioritizing agenda requests for Board action (generally either in the form of a motion or letter) or announcements submitted by stakeholders, governmental entities and other interested individuals and organizations. Planning and Land Use (PLUM) and Vision Sub-Committee Committee has the discretion to postpone a request, refer it to a specific committee for review and recommendation, treat it as an announcement or consider and resolve it as a non-Board administrative matter.
