I strongly oppose development of a $40-million cultural arts complex in the Sepulveda Basin.
Many have characterized supporters of the recently enacted measure to restrict non-residential growth (Proposition U) as having an "I've got mine, now close the gates" mentality. In reality, voters were telling city officials and their planners, "I've got mine, but I can't get to it."
The proposed cultural arts complex is another example of the lack of understanding of the serious traffic congestion in areas near the Sepulveda Dam.
Residents in the surrounding communities are not culturally deprived. They are strangling from too much traffic as a result of years of unbridled growth and non-planning by L.A. government.
