Carson General Plan, Zoning Amendments and EIR
Carson, with a population of 95,000, is located about 10 miles south of downtown Los Angeles and three miles north of the Los Angeles and Long Beach ports—the two busiest ports in the country—located side-by-side in San Pedro Bay. The Alameda Corridor, which is the busiest freight corridor in the country linking the ports to the transcontinental rail network, runs through Carson, and has strongly influenced Carson’s evolution as a center of industry and logistics. The General Plan and EIR was adopted in March 2023, and envisions Carson in 2040 as a vibrant, diverse, and energetic place that embraces technology, creativity, and innovation. D&B also prepared the Sixth Cycle Housing Element and is now preparing a comprehensive update of the Zoning Code.
