What are Soft-Story Buildings?

Structures with first floors that are much less rigid than the floors above it are generally considered “soft-story buildings.” Through Ordinances 183893 and 184081, LA County is working on reducing these structural deficiencies so that these buildings are less susceptible to earthquake damage. You can read more about the county’s mandatory retrofit programs here.
