Los Angeles’ preliminary earthquake fault study zone

Los Angeles May­or Eric Gar­cetti an­nounced three new earth­quake pre­lim­in­ary fault study zones for the Hol­ly­wood-Ray­mond, Pa­los Verdes and Santa Mon­ica fault sys­tems.
The new zones, colored in blue, yel­low, and aqua, mean that de­velopers will need to de­term­ine if an earth­quake fault is present or ab­sent un­der the pro­posed con­struc­tion site.
To find if your prop­erty is in the new zone, go to zi­­, type in your ad­dress, and se­lect the “Plan­ning and
Zon­ing” link and look to see if “Pre­lim­in­ary Alquist-Pri­olo Fault Study Zone” is lis­ted.
