Harbor Gateway North, you should have received your Census 2020 request in the mail by now. The Coronavirus pandemic is a reminder of why it’s important to fill out. The Census is how federal and local governments determine which communities need specific resources and in what amounts. Less than 19% of Angelenos have filled out the Census thus far and we can do better!
If you meet specific criteria, you are eligible for free COVID-19 testing. Check out this list of volunteer opportunities and information resources.

What does the Planning & Land Use Committee Do:
The committee makes recommendations to the Board on Planning and Land Use Issues, including the following:
- Proposed Zoning Changes
- Affordable Housing Projects
- Large Developments that are NOT allowed “by right”
- Updates to the Harbor Gateway Community Plan
- Two other Community Plans for the Harbor Gateway North Area
- Proposals related to Land Use and the Impact of Development on Health & Welfare of Stakeholders
Committee members are expected to listen to the detail of land use proposal presented by applicants for projects in the Harbor Gateway North, to fairly evaluate the impact of the projects on the surrounding neighborhoods, and to make recommendations for improvements to the project proposals.
The Committee then makes it recommendations to the full HGNNC Board, whose members vote on its position to support or oppose the proposed project.
The Committee meets the First Saturday of Each Month.
