You guys see this one??? An historic TRAILER PARK!?!? Looks like another case of CA infringing upon property owner rights. Who here is going to add the TP to their tour of wonderful CA when they visit next? Are we to assume that this is some of the best history that CA has to offer!?[rolleyes]
Trailer park makes L.A. historic monument list Park joins Hollywood sign on protected list Friday, November 8, 2002 Posted: 12:35 AM EST (0535 GMT) LOS ANGELES. California (AP) -- A tree-shaded trailer park has been named to the city's list of historic and cultural monuments, becoming what could be the first mobile home park in the country given the designation, officials said. The Monterey Trailer Park, a few miles northeast of downtown, dates to the early 1920s. It served as an auto camp to provide temporary housing to people moving to Los Angeles after World War I, according to the Los Angeles Conservancy, which lobbied for the status. The City Council unanimously approved the designation Tuesday. The trailer park joins 715 other Los Angeles historic sites, including an avocado grove and the Hollywood sign. Owner Peter Young opposed the designation, saying he feared it would interfere with his plans to restore the 1.7-acre trailer park. He did not attend the council meeting. When built, the site boasted laundry facilities, 10 guest cabins and two small Craftsman-style homes nestled among pines, elms, live oaks and a pair of redwoods. The guest cabins are now gone but two homes and some other facilities remain, along with 22 trailers and mobile homes used by about 30 residents. The designation will have little effect on day-to-day life at the park. However, it will restrict the owner's ability to make changes without city approval

While having the designation does restrict the owner from doing certain things it also gives him special loan rates on things he can do and freezes the property tax rates even to people who own it later. They are trying to make the street I live on a historical landmark. Was the original street for the area when it was first developed. I hope it goes through. Makes my property even more valuable.

The guy can now milk the system big time. He needs to restore the park to it's original condition, big bucks.

Balzac72, why do you care what the City of Los Angeles does? You have enough to worry about in your own state.

After this last election, I'm worrying less and less. But its always fun to point out how bass ackwards CA is in relation to the rest of the normal world. I hope someone does a study one day of the effect of smog on brain cells.

As much as I smirk at the idiotic antics of Kalifornistanians, New York isn't exactly a shining beacon of intellectual might. I mean, New Yorkers DID elect Hitlery Klinton. Your version of "Republicans" are slightly left of Lenin, as well.

Tonight while I was browsing DU, I saw a thread where this guy was all giddy because he got a 3-month assignment in San Francisco. And then this other moron from Boston chimed in saying yeah, you'll love it here. blah blah blah. The fact is this place is a magnet for liberals. You guys should be thanking us for taking in all your liberals, instead of criticizing us who are here trying to get by. This is the first time since 1888 that the democrats held all the executive offices in CA. Add to that their control of both the state senate and assembly, and this will prove to be an interesting decade. I think we are in for the most difficult fight since our statehood.

Actually, yeah, there are. A couple of years ago one was seen near Santa Rosa, and west where I am, a few years earlier one took out a tree right down the street from me.

This is where the sun looks down, gets depressed and goes away. The dirt looks up, sees who it's is holding up and tries to shake them off. The fearless leaders know that to the south is a third world country with lots of potential voters, to the west is water, to the east is mountains and desert, and to the north is rain and snow. So they tax everybody who is dumb enough to stay here, pay off the ones who come here and vote for them, spend more than they have left, and blame the people who manage to still have some.
