Public Counter

The public counter at Los Angeles City Planning’s Development Services Centers (DSCs) serves as a single portal and point of consultation for a wide range of project applications. In the City of Los Angeles, there are three DSCs with dedicated planning resources: Metro (Downtown), Valley (Van Nuys), and West Los Angeles.

Applicants can schedule an appointment to receive technical guidance on planning approvals during the design, entitlement, and permitting stages of a project. Small business owners and residents can also visit the DSCs to learn about proposed land use regulations pertaining to land use.
