Cherry-picking from this piece that ran in today’s Los Angeles Times:

— The city’s share of the project has ballooned from $500 million to $1.2 billion

— Restoration will take 30 to 50 years

— 9,000 construction jobs will be created

— Sale prices for riverfront property in Elysian Valley, between the river and the 5 Freeway,

have doubled in the last 24 months

See you on the river, Jim Burns

  1. Jim, we, meaning you, need to do a piece on people snagging carp from the LA River using illegal treble hooks. My buddies and I have seen them down there twice in the last week. Just a thought for a post.
