“Susanna Schick – Listening to everyone last night, all I could think was how this is just the effects of overpopulation. It’s not just Frogtown, it’s everywhere, especially cities. People want to live in cities again. As I said last night, 30′ is fine, we need more apartments in the city, but not more than 30′ worth in a public transportation dead zone. The current residents of Frogtown who don’t want any change at all are no better than the people mentioned in this article.http://bit.ly/1F8v7u8 The numbers in this article are sobering.
It’s not that EV is “being dumped on” as one person said. It’s that LA is a place where everyone wants to live, and the city has let too many NIMBY’s push it around and keep housing unaffordable. I remember when rent here was so cheap it was easy to find a good place, when buildings would compete for new tenants. Not anymore. We’re pushing maximum capacity and while we especially need to build more along metro lines, we need to build more everywhere.”
