FROM THIS EPISODE

After years of massive commercial development in the 80's ad 90's, Santa Monica experienced a lull. But it's booming again, and one new project — barely approved by the City Council — has angry opponents saying there's not enough housing. But there's so much office space there'll be 7000 new trips every day on the 10 Freeway, which is already approaching gridlock. We hear about efforts to kill it on this year's Santa Monica ballot. Also, do Republicans have the candidates to rebuild their party in California?

Will Santa Monica's Growing Pains Mean Agony Region-wide? 17 MIN, 48 SEC

The Bergamot Transit Village was barely approved by the City Council by a vote of four to three. Santa Monica's "Residocracy" movement got double the signatures needed to put the Hines' project portion of the Village on the November ballot. If the signatures are valid, voters could decide the future of a project three-quarters the size of the Water Garden.
