Good morning, readers. Today is Thursday, June 28, 2012. California is dealing with a budget crisis and cities are mourning the loss of redevelopment agencies, but development is still underway in the Valley.
The L.A. City Council OKd $500,000 for a project to repair cracked sidewalks in the Northeast San Fernando Valley. The money apparently came from leftover funding that the city's shuttered redevelopment agency squirreled away. Daily News
Downtown and Culver City welcomed the Expo Line earlier this year; Now it's the Valley's turn for a transportation upgrade.
Over in North Hollywood, a driver in a BMW led police on a chase across the Valley at speeds reaching 100 mph. L.A. Now
How are you dealing with the Rapture? The traffic between the Valley and the Westside is consistently horrendous, but the closure of two 405 Freeway ramps hasn't made the area uncivilized territory, yet. L.A. Observed
