Hosted by

Last week, the City of Los Angeles took a stand against over-sized homes. The so-called Hillside Mansionization Ordinance imposes restrictions based on parcel size, the steepness of slopes and other factors.

A son of Saudi King Abdullah has agreed to reduce his residential compound from 85,000 square feet to 52,000. Martha Groves has followed the story for the LA Times.
