Don, yes, West Hollywood gets an award for being a wonderfully planned and forward-thinking city. The reason you enjoy all the benefits of living in a city with a budget surplus that funds so many city services and events is because of over 30 years of good decisions by the City Council as it has evolved over the years. If you don’t like it, leave.

FYI, the Rent Stabilization programs of the four cities are receiving the Planning Landmark Award which is “presented for projects at least 25 years old that are historically significant, initiated a new direction in planning or impacted American planning, cities or regions over a broad range of time or space,” according to the American Planning Association’s web site.

So cities that overbuild, ignore priorities such as traffic congestion, parking and residents needs get awards? LA gets an award? Really? As for our city, WeHo, parks do not represent the overall bowing to property developers.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
