The City of Santa Monica has scheduled a community workshop on the Land Use and Circulation Element (LUCE) from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 7th at the Civic Auditorium’s East Wing, 1855 Main St., Santa Monica.

The city is currently working to update its Land Use and Circulation Element, a key component of the city’s General Plan that was last comprehensively updated in 1984, and is seeking public input. The plan is intended to frame the city’s land use, transportation and urban design vision for the next 20 years.

Among the LUCE topics to be discussed at the workshop are:

n Prioritizing Community Benefits: Incorporating benefits such as affordable and workforce housing, creative arts, open space and historic preservation into future projects;

n Testing Economic Feasibility: Addressing how future projects could provide community amenities; and

n Taking Charge of Our Future: Achieving the vision in a sustainable fashion and balancing essential components over time.

This workshop marks a critical juncture where all the significant LUCE components come together, city officials said.
