PLAN Hermosa cover thumbnail In a 5-0 decision, the Hermosa Beach City Council adopted PLAN Hermosa on August 22, 2017. This is the City's first general plan update since 1979. PLAN Hermosa sets a long-term vision and provides policy direction and guidance to residents, City staff, decision-makers, and the community on:

  • What investments we make in our infrastructure;
  • How we preserve our small town character and historic buildings; and
  • Identifying where changes are needed to grow our economy and create local jobs.

Within PLAN Hermosa, goals and measurable actions have been established that will help us achieve our long term vision as a community that values our small beach town character, vibrant economy, and healthy environment and lifestyles through seven key elements:

  1. Governance
  2. Land Use + Design
  3. Mobility
  4. Sustainability + Conservation
  5. Parks + Open Space
  6. Public Safety
  7. Infrastructure

The City of Hermosa Beach is currently working on updating and integrating the Local Coastal Program into PLAN Hermosa.
