Community/Place Naming Project

The Community/Place Naming Project is an anticipated project of the CIO that will most likely begin after the Countywide Statistical Areas become Board approved. We anticipate that the Community/Place geographies will be more informal, as they will be used for labeling maps but not collecting statistics. Naming will probably use the following guidelines:

  1. Census boundaries are preferred but are not required (may be smaller areas than the Countywide Statistical Areas – formerly called BASAs)
  2. Areas may have multiple names
  3. Do not need to cover the entire County
  4. May have overlapping areas
  5. Order of preference (not final):
    1. Community Standard District (CSD)
    2. Zipcode name
    3. LA Times community name for LA City areas (but could also the LA City Planning Areas)
    4. Other related and historical sources.
