FROM THIS EPISODE

Twenty years ago, Los Angeles voted for slow growth in an effort to stop urban sprawl. As the population increased, city officials are now touting  “smart growth”. Smart growth will create density in taller buildings that are near public transportation. Can it work in a city designed for the automobile?

Main Topic Is Smart Growth a Dumb Idea for Los Angeles?

Twenty years ago Los Angeles passed Proposition U designed to slow city growth by reducing the size of buildings on major boulevards.  Smart Growth allows developers to build big if their projects combine housing and businesses - and if they’re close to public transportation.
