Tejon Ranch sprawl? 14.5.2008 LA Times: Opinion
Environmentalists accepted development in exchange for land. But their work isn't done. How heartening it is, the sound of environmentalists and developers harmoniously agreeing on new construction. That's what first came to mind when the Tejon Ranch Co. and such environmental heavyweights as the Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Council jointly announced plans to both build on and preserve swaths of the 270,000-acre ranch that straddles Los Angeles and Kern counties. If all goes as intended, more than 200,000 acres would be preserved, with some as a state park and most under private ...

Citing mainly additional freeway congestion, the L.A. City Council recently blocked the construction of the massive Las Lomas housing development near Interstate 5.

Today, Reed and Gordon address the relationship between growth, city planning and traffic. Previously, they debated the MTA's plan to convert some carpool lanes into toll lanes, the slow pace of building transit projects in Los Angeles and congestion pricing.

California sprawl slows down 24.3.2008 LA Times: Opinion
A calm in our region's growth offers an opportunity to cope with water, traffic and other issues. The Census Bureau has released its annual estimate of county population changes, and as they have for years, the numbers for July 2006 to July 2007 show wild growth in Sunbelt cities in eastern California, Nevada and Arizona. But this year they also hint that the rate of growth may be slowing, and that coastal urban and suburban areas could be gaining ground. Riverside County, for instance, added 79,995 people in 2006 but just 66,365 last year -- not a reverse but perhaps a respite. San Diego's more modest growth, on the other hand, nearly quadrupled from 6,704 in 2006 to 26,497 in ...
