Centennial is a Coming

It's too easy to pound the anti-development drum, but this New York Times story on Centennial, a planned city on 11,700 acres 60 miles outside of Los Angeles, still left us feeling uneasy. Maybe it's the 23,000 housing units planned, or maybe it's that there isn't a clear vision for the place, or maybe it's that the California condors lose their home. Or maybe it's this sentence: "Opponents see the specter of a bedroom community where residents clog the highways at rush hour in a mad dash to and from Los Angeles."
