Well, we dodged a big one last night. Proposition T was defeated by a 12% majority. That strikes me as a victory for the LUCE process, and a defeat of ad hoc planning by a strident minority. Over the next few weeks I will transform this blog into one that advocates on urban design and planning issues in the city, but for now, I will just enjoy. Congratulations to all who worked against this measure, to our re-elected council members, and to everyone who voted for Measure R, an important part of this overall effort.
I am committed to sustainable urbanism (environmentally, socially and economically) and passionate about community making in all its forms. By day I practice Urban Design in an office in Downtown L.A., but by evening I reside in Santa Monica, a city that I love, with my wife and 3 kids who attend and mostly walk to SMMUSD schools
