Odds and Ends 48

Are you in favor of, or opposed to having a new Environmental Impact Report done for the Ponte Vista at San Pedro project?

If you favor a new study or think it would serve no purpose, you may want to contact S. Gail Goldberg, AICP, the Director of Planning for the City of Los Angeles.

Ms. Goldberg can be reached by sending snail mail to:

200 North Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012-2601
FAX: (213) 978-1275

Or you could send your comments via their Web site at:

Situations have changed since the first impact report was created. The access to Mary Star has made some change to traffic patterns on Western Avenue. Water, or the lack thereof may be more important to OUR community than it was when the studies were conducted. The student population of the schools in the area is different than reported in the original study. The number of students the original study indicated would be attending local schools when living at Ponte Vista is incredibly incorrect.

As you may be able to tell, I favor having a completely new study undertaken. If Bob gets anywhere near the number of units he wants, we have only here and now to make absolutely sure that every "i" has its dot and every "t" has been crossed.

We must not be sitting somewhere in the future, wondering what we could have done or should have done, to make sure that we all did our very best to insure that whatever is built at Ponte Vista, is in the best interest of the residents of OUR community.

I am still a little sad about the retirement of the blog, life on the edge.

The last post is titled, "It's pronounced "Fronkensteen."

This title brings up a question that has absolutely nothing to do with Ponte Vista and somtimes that can be a good thing.

Which of the following two movies do you feel you enjoy more: Blazing Saddles or Young Frankenstein?

I must admit that it is very difficult for me to come up with a good answer. They are both great comedies. In reality, we don't need to consider which one is better because we can enjoy both of them just about whenever we wish to.
