Also on the program, a proposed ballot measure that would put the brakes on big, new projects that need the City Council's approval. We look at what could be the next big battle over the future of Los Angeles.

Communities Seek to Stem Mega-Development 8 MIN, 59 SEC

The Millennium project and a new Target store, both in Hollywood, have been stalled by neighborhood opposition. Now there's a new plan, the Palladium project: a tower with 731 new housing units. Activists claim that Hollywood isn't the only place where what they call "mega-development" is a threat, and now they're proposing a city-wide ballot measure called the "Neighborhood Integrity Initiative." Michael Weinstein is president of the AIDS Healthcare Initiative Foundation — with headquarters next to the Palladium project.

The Long Commute 14 MIN, 57 SEC

In the days of real-estate "redlining," black people could only buy property in some parts of Los Angeles. South LA became the center of African-American life and culture. But things changed and, in the era of gansta rap and Boyz n the Hood, black people began moving out. In the latest installment of KCRW's Below the Ten series, David Weinberg tells the story of two families that migrated to the Antelope Valley — where housing costs less, but commuting back to the old neighborhood means a long trip home.
