Does LUVE hurt or help Santa Monica? 17 MIN, 6 SEC

Downtown Santa Monica is being transformed from a Central Business District into a dense, walkable community of three- to seven-story mixed-use buildings attractive to young and old urban dwellers. But many Santa Monica residents are angered by what they see as over-development and traffic congestion. They are supporting Measure LV, or LUVE (Land-Use Voter Empowerment), a November ballot initiative that is being watched around the Southland. (We hear from Santa Monica residents Elena Christopoulos, Jeremy Stutes, Brian Derro, Shari Mattingly, Gary Llewellyn, Amy Utani and Ida Reilly.)

Artwashing and Gentrification in Boyle Heights 11 MIN, 1 SEC

The East LA neighborhood of Boyle Heights has become the latest flashpoint in the debate over gentrification and rising home prices. Activists are targeting art galleries for catalyzing gentrification and displacement of long-time tenants, to be replaced by folks from other parts of the Southland who are being priced out of their neighborhoods. DnA's Avishay Artsy reports from Boyle Heights.
