Our Future! Concrete Canyons??
Comment by Steven S. Kane on March 25, 2011 at 6:02pm
Too many roads, too many cars.  The people have to compete with the cars to move around.  The Grove is a center in West Hollywood that works really well because the central area is almost like a park.  It is designed to be used by people.  It actually has grass, trees and water rather than glass and concrete.  This looks like a 1950s concept where the auto is king and the people had better just get out of the way.  Please do not build it!  However, I am sure that our East County 16 year-old pickup truck jockeys would love it.

Stevens argues that one of the best decisions he ever made was buying his first home at the age of 27 in 1984. Pointing to his own daughter, Stevens writes, “We cannot underestimate the impact of this decline in first-time buyers; the health of the housing market relies heavily on them.”
