The Future of Los Angeles

by Patt Morrison

Are more mixed-use neighborhoods with housing, businesses, schools and public facilities part of LA's future? Dare we dream of less traffic and more village-like communities, conveniently connected by mass transit? Or will the changes be less dramatic? More palm trees perhaps? However Los Angeles evolves, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has big dreams, and he's brought in two new people to help implement them. In January, Gail Goldberg was named as the new head of the city's Planning Department. Two months later the Mayor announced his recruitment of Gloria Jeff as the new General Manager of the Transportation Department. Host Patt Morrison talks with Goldberg and Jeff, who will be working closely together, about their plans for a new and improved Los Angeles.
