East LA's Big Plans

Given East LA 's Gold Line Eastside Extension, developers are already planning new projects, like an 85-unit affordable housing complex at 3929 E. Third St, notes the Los Angeles Business Journal. Also: the Department of Regional Planning is considering making a transit oriented district along the East Third Street corridor, a move that could result in more sidewalk cafes and plazas, for instance. Also, the Journal notes there's a renewed incorporation movement going on in East L.A.; comparisons of East LA are being made to Harlem, and those who favor of cityhood say it'll allow East LA to "control its economic destiny." (Readers may hit a pay wall at LABJ; we never understand how it works.)
