Why should it go to developers, who will just take the money and run?

When the Big One hits, you will probably be one of the first ones out
there crying for aid, which will come in via SMO, since all the freeways
will be clogged. SMO is just another part of the transportation system
and is irreplaceable.

Because the land belonged to the federal government, and the city agreed to
hold it in perpetuity as an airport as a condition of receipt of said land? The
airport isn't merely land, it is an integral part of the National Airspace
System. Removal of components of the NAS degrades the entire system.

Why should developers be permitted to violate the agreement by which the city
acquired the airport land?

Why should nearby homeowners receive a boost in home value as a result of an
illegal land grab? The price they paid for their homes was doubtlessly
influenced by the proximity of the airport.

Why did the city permit construction of homes so close to the airport? That
would seem to qualify as an admission of malfeasance in office.

Why are you so anti aviation?

The resulting buildings, residential or commercial, will generate jobs and revenues far greater than what current SMO users provide. Just look at the development further south at Playa Vista and the old Hughes site.

When the Big One hits, you will probably be one of the first ones out

there crying for aid, which will come in via SMO, since all the freeways


The "aid" could just as easily use LAX, whatever "aid" is considered so critical that it must be flown in. Most supplies will come overland from Inland Empire warehouses.

In Perpetuity ?? Forever and ever ?? Sorry but times change and eventually land moves on to higher and better uses.

airport isn't merely land, it is an integral part of the National Airspace

A lot of the houses are in adjoining LA city. What should have been done, should the orange groves been kept ??




Why are you so anti aviation?


Me, "anti-aviation" ?? Just another personal attack from a side with few logical
points to defend their position. In fact I've been watching a heli-pad being built 3 miles from Chicago's downtown by a private developer. But you have to be super-liquid to afford a helo in the city.

Why should a city have a park? Not everyone will use it. Likewise for
quite a number of city features.

Not everything of worth is measured by the strict economic utility of
it.

Some of them, yes. LA would be a lot more pleasant if the developers
hadn't had free reign for decades.

Yes -- Just look at all that valuable property going to waste as parks,
when it could be sold to developers who would build new Century Cities
on the land!
