Bringing Back Pico in SaMo

New, 9 comments

Aw, poor Pico Blvd. in Santa Monica, always a bridesmaid to prettier streets like Montana and the Third Street Promenade. Well, Santa Monica Rent Board Commissioner Robert Kronovet (who is also Chairman of the Pico Improvement Organization) wants to change that--he says the biggest impediments are strict code enforcement and "an excess of low-income housing concentrated on the street." But he tells the Lookout News: "With its length of single-story, boutique-like storefronts and 1960s neighborhood feel, 'Pico Boulevard could be transformed into a vital arts district'."
