    In a totally unrelated story, a bunch of environmental activists in Santa Monica are decrying sprawl development in the High Desert and the IE ;)

    Also note that the SM article confirms my previous supposition that we won’t get denser redevelopment on a meaningful scale under the present zoning/permitting scheme.

  • RE:  Meassure J’s Failure to pass

    Antonovich has a point.  Metro’s myopic approach to transit shouldn’t be funded way into the future.  

  • Jerard

    66.1% voter support usually means a landslide. If this was under 50 or even as high as 60% I’d give Antonovich this point.

  • I would have thought myopic (as in my district is all that matters) is the perfect description of Antonovich’s incoherent ramblings.

  •  You don’t need to concede his point, well because no matter how close it was, it didn’t pass.  So his point is correct.

  • Jerard

    I actually wasn’t conceding his point, I was translating the results into applicable language to a strong statistic to use that;
    “66.1% of LA County Voters wanted to invest in projects being accelerated, air being cleaner and jobs being produced”   

    That is a strong meaning in that message. Which also means the 5th County Supervisor really has no leverage when it comes to the public will in what it wants when pushing this forward through other methods.
