    Achieves the goals and objectives of the LAX Plan through zoning and development standards, and contains specific provisions for the Project site. The currently adopted LAX Specific Plan zoning for the Project site is Los Angeles International Airport Specific Plan Zone (LAX-N Zone).

Additionally, the LAX Specific Plan limits development within the Project site by establishing a vehicle trip cap of no more than 3,922 project-related am peak hour trips (or 3,152 inbound trips) and 4,421 project related pm peak hour trips (or 3,040 outbound trips) (Section 12-C(2)).
