Altadena CSD Revisions: Fact vs. Fiction

The L.A. County Department of Regional Planning has published a new page on its website that counters rumors about what the Altadena Community Standards District (CSD) revisions are proposing to do regarding Altadena CSD Amendment. There is no one-size-fits-all front yard size in Altadena. Today, the front yard size depends on the average front yard setback rule for R-1 zoned properties. This means in order to find out the size of your front yard, you have to survey all the other properties on the same side of the street within the same block, identify their setbacks, and then calculate the average. This average is your front yard requirement.
