El Monte General Plan Update Economic Development Element

Part of our update of the city’s general plan, the economic development element provided specific guidance for five critical areas—expand job opportunities for city residents; capitalize on Flair Park’s freeway frontage; support the city’s fiscal health; meet the city’s housing needs and to improve neighborhood quality of life; bolster El Monte’s public image and community identity. PlaceWorks also updated the city’s zoning regulations to implement provisions of the economic development element.
