bigger is badder

the vastly underrated csmonitor looks at LA's attempts to curb unbridled square footage growth:
"Mansionization has become one of the most pressing issues in my district," says Wendy Gruel, the city councilwoman who sponsored the legislation, which goes into effect immediately upon formal approval this week. The measure will limit homes built on lots of 8,000 sq. ft. or less to 2,400 sq. ft. - or 40 percent of the lot size, whichever is greater. The move affects just one community of her district (known as Sunland-Tujunga). Neighboring towns of Pasadena, Glendale, and Burbank have visited the issue, some coming up with similar ordinances, and Ms. Gruel says other areas of the San Fernando Valley are clamoring for their own laws as well.
oh, and joel kotkin of course gets in his 2 cents. which makes me wonder if journalists are capable of writing about LA, surburbia, or sprawl without putting in a call to him.

That's amusing about Joel Kotkin. He must be in everybody's rolodex (or whatever they use now).
