Between the management, the merchants on Olvera Street, the mayoral-appointed commission that oversees the department ( yes, it is a city department), the cultural providers and the 2 million annual visitors, one group will find something about which to object. St© £ Once we accept that reality, the fact is, this is a moment for moving forward at El Pueblo. In recent years several things have occurred that make this a positive time for the site where Los Angeles was founded more than 230 years ago. Again, we may not get everyone on the same page, but it is worth recognizing the positive pre...

Usually, the city offers to issue tax-free bonds. Sometimes property owners agree to the trade. Sometimes they don’t. Diminishing Streams Preservation, housing advocates say, will be extra important in the coming years because there will be fewer ways to finance new projects. Los Angeles’ CRA, which along with some 400 other California redevelopment agencies was formally dissolved on Feb. 1, spent 25% of its annual budget to support new affordable housing development and maintain low prices in existing buildings. In 2012, the agency was slated to spend $ 162 million on such projects. The Huntington Hotel was an affordable housing complex for two decades.

That’s going to change with the Regional Connector, they promise. While no station will be the same, the three Regional Connector hubs will echo one another through shared materials, namely an emphasis on durable, long-lasting concrete, steel and glass, and drought-tolerant plants. The approach is expected to save the agency money in future maintenance costs, though it is unclear whether the kit of parts will lower initial station construction prices. The...
