HEALTH
October 20, 2011 | By Amina Khan, Los Angeles Times
People who move from a poor neighborhood to a better-off one could end up thinner and healthier than those who stay behind, according to an urban housing experiment that tracked low-income residents in five major cities for 10 to 15 years. The research, set up by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, shows that health is closely linked to the environments people live in — and that social policies to change those environments or move people away from blighted areas could be a key tactic in fighting the "diabesity" epidemic.

Eleven Los Angeles neighborhoods--including three in the Valley--should begin reaping the benefits of the Targeted Neighborhoods Initiative by the beginning of next year, city officials said Monday. Created by Mayor Richard Riordan and approved by the City Council in March, the $33-million program will use federal funds to help community organizations make a variety of improvements in their areas.
OPINION

I took great interest in "They Did Go Home Again" (March 23), about Angelenos resettling in the neighborhoods where they grew up. Although I grew up in San Pedro, I've lived the past 20 years in the neighborhood where my grandfather grew up. When he was riding his donkey cart here on dirt streets (I have a photo of him with his sister in this cart), this neighborhood was called Exposition Park. It is now called North University Park. My great-grandfather moved his family here because it was the best neighborhood in the city.

Adams Square, Tropico, High Line Road and a dozen other neighborhoods are all part of the puzzle that equals southern Glendale. But have they lost their identity as the city has grown and their unique houses and shops were razed to make way for apartment buildings?

The metro neighborhoods of San Diego have been a battlefield for the last few years, with developers and construction companies on one side and homeowners on the other. In addition to living in one of these areas, I am a real estate agent who works in the neighborhoods--North Park, University Heights, Normal Heights, Hillcrest, Golden Hill--and I find myself listening to both sides and often being asked for an opinion or a solution.

On the surface, the matter before the Cultural Heritage Commission on Wednesday was a proposal to preserve the architectural character of two residential neighborhoods in the Miracle Mile area. But the real issue was change--whether a trend toward high-density housing will continue there and whether 60-year-old buildings with gables, towers and curving archways will survive north of Wilshire Boulevard.
