Housing: Zone Change

Did you know as part of the implementation of the Housing Element, LCF adopted a Zone Change to rezone all identified parcels outside of and within the Downtown Village Specific Plan?

This Zone Change will help to increase density, implement objective design standards and reduce development standards to more easily develop housing.

Housing: Entitlement Permits

La Cañada Flintridge created a webpage on post entitlement permits for housing, an optional type of building permit for new housing projects as part of California Assembly Bill 2234.

Post Entitlement permits are for housing projects that create additional dwelling units and do not apply to additions or alterations to existing residences or to commercial permits.  

Visit for instructions and resources for residents applying for a “Post-Entitlement Phase” building permit, materials needed for submittal, the timeline for permit approval and more. 

Home Security 101

Did you know that many burglars use similar break-in methods? Be in the know to stay safe.

  1. Most home burglaries occur Mon-Fri, or on weekends if the homeowner is on vacation
  2. Suspects may use the "knock-knock" method — knock and if there is no answer, go to the back and smash a window to gain entry
  3. Typically, one or more vehicle(s) is/are involved. High-end luxury vehicles that linger should be reported.
  4. Set up notifications on your devices whenever possible to be alerted of loss of connection, which can signal suspicious activity
