If you haven’t already seen it, I’d like to direct your attention to a piece that Dick Platkin wrote for CityWatch on re:code LA. If don’t know what re:code is, you’re not alone. In spite of our city officials’ claims that they’ve done extensive outreach, I bet less than one percent of the population has heard of it.
Briefly, it’s an attempt to redo the City’s zoning code, and there’s no question that the existing code is hopelessly out of date. The problem is, it seems like the people behind this effort seem more interested in serving developers than serving the people of LA.
But Platkin says it much better than I can. Click on the link below to learn more.
