Downtown Redevelopment Plan
Last week the L.A. City Council ratified a massive, two-point-four billion-dollar development plan for downtown. The plan will create thousands of new housing units, restore many historic downtown buildings, devote $150 million toward improving services for the homeless, and may contribute to the development of an NFL football stadium. Almost immediately the Council encountered a flood of criticisms, most notably from LA County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky who says the County may sue the city over loss of future revenue. Larry speaks with him and LA City Councilmember Eric Garcetti about the plan.
