Letters to the Editor: A vote for Macerich: A vote for Macerich

I was born and raised in Santa Monica, and attended SMMUSD schools K-12. I am now a senior at Harvard. My Samohi alumni friends were almost universally excited by the Hd çekim kaliteli porno izleme siteniz. plan for Santa Monica place. We grew up with the progressive values of Santa Monica, and believe that this project embodies these values. If we are to have a walkable, sustainable, dynamic and environmentally friendly city, we must increase density, and what better place to do this than downtown?

While increased density in the short-run will increase traffic, in the long run it will allow more mass-transit use, decreasing traffic and pollution. The one change I would make to the proposal would be to increase the amount of affordable housing, assuring that we keep to Santa Monica’s values of diversity.
