pissedWhile a $1 billion makeover of Jordan Downs is planned, the LA Times' Sandy Banks reports that only a "dozen of Jordan Downs' 700 families turn out consistently at architects' planning sessions," and those sessions, according to the paper, aren't going so smoothly given what the architects propose (rooftop decks) and what residents want (bars on windows). Says one resident of planners' efforts to change the development: "Upscale people are not going to move over here, to the heart of the ghetto. "They'll be, like: 'Where are the gas stations? Who are all these dudes hanging around? Why did that guy take off with my car?" [LA Times]
