Re "Zev tours growth areas in a fury," column, March 19
Thanks for Steve Lopez's wild tour with L.A. County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky. In our neighborhood, we're asking the same kinds of questions about development. Will we be at maximum density when we all bump heads picking up our morning paper?
In our case, a developer purchased nearly an entire block of homes and has a large condo project underway. So is that enough density on one block? Apparently not in the eyes of city planners, as they're now considering allowing the same developer to do a similar condo project on our side of the Monopoly board too.
When I asked a city department if the project required a traffic plan, I was told, "Nope, the project's too small." Interesting to note that the developer says he's buying into the area because of its charm. Too bad he's planning to tear it all down.
