Do Real Planning

Jane Usher, President of the Los Angeles City Planning Commission, sits down for a conversation with the Architect's Newspaper about planning in Los Angeles, the SB 1818 Density Bonus law, and the tug-of-war between community members, the planning department and the City Council for the future of our neighborhoods. On the question of which group hinders Los Angeles from being a great city: "...I find the developers to be largely very reasonable. They just want to know what the rules are. So I don’t blame the developers and I don’t blame the homeowners. I find that the most blameworthy place is the department of city planning, which I think has let down both sides of the equation by not defining for them with sufficient specificity what our vision is for land use."
