The Future of Los Angeles Revealed

Posted: Jun. 27th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Times are changing, and so is Los Angeles if city planners can agree on one of three plans that will finally kick the City of Angels into the next millennium. Aiming to do away with the clichéd, smog filled death trap the city has been stereotyped into, city planners will revitalize the city with a number of energy efficient, green solutions that will revamp the city and make the place the treasure trove it used to be.

Three bold plans to turn L.A. into a better, more sustainable version of itself, one that will be able to meet the formidable water, air, and climate challenges of the 21st century.

In the summer of 1998, my wife and I left Brooklyn and gamely headed west to Los Angeles, as disaffected New Yorkers are wont to do, in search of the proverbial greener grass. We found it right away in front of the quintessentially L.A.–style rental house we had been dreaming of: a cozy 1920s Spanish Colonial Revival, complete with a yard and a bounteous garden.
