    Please, please, please focus on displacement and gentrification issues, i.e. bicycling, walkability, placemaking, as a way to combat these downsides to 21st century urbanism. I’m predicting that Boyle Heights especially will be a major area for “redevelopment” and the accompanying displacement of communities that happen time and again in Los Angeles.
