Clean Up Green Up

On June 19, 2013, the City Council initiated the Clean Up Green Up pilot by approving the Clean Up Green Up Trust Fund Ordinance. The goal of the pilot program is to address the cumulative health impacts of industrial land uses adjacent to homes, schools, parks, and other sensitive areas. The program begins in portions of Boyle Heights, Pacoima, and Wilmington that have been affected by industrial pollution.

Urban Agriculture Incentive Zone (UAIZ) Program

The Urban Agriculture Incentive Zone (UAIZ) Program is a State program (Assembly Bill No. 551) adopted by the California State Legislature in 2013. On June 14, 2017, the Los Angeles City Council adopted the Urban Agriculture Incentive Zone (UAIZ) Ordinance to implement a local program citywide in accordance with AB 551. The Ordinance allows landowners to enter into a voluntary contract with the City of Los Angeles to use vacant properties for active agricultural purposes in exchange for a potential property tax reduction.
