Hawthorne Boulevard Specific Plan


A Specific Plan is a popular form of a land use overlay. An overlay is an additional layer of planning control, establishing stricter standards that go beyond what the underlying zoning would normally regulate. Cities implement overlays to achieve goals that may not ordinarily be attainable through zoning rules alone ranging from more specific standards governing the production of affordable housing. commercial oriented development, etc.

Properties located on, or adjacent to, Hawthorne Boulevard, are within the Hawthorne Boulevard Specific Plan area. Properties within the Specific Plan area are subject to the zoning standards, commercial regulations, and design criteria outlined in the Hawthorne Boulevard Specific Plan.

This document is revised periodically to ensure that established policies are compliant with current standards and regulations, and that the established goals and policies aligned with the needs and interests of the residents.
