  • The city Planning Commission voted in favor of new regulations and restrictions on Airbnb and other short-term rentals. The new rules, which must still be approved by the City Council, would allow residents to rent out their primary residence for up to 180 days annually.  Owners of second homes  could rent them out for  a maximum of 15 days a year.

  • Metro board members approved placing a half-cent sales tax on the November ballot. But the $120 billion worth of projects that would be funded by the tax does not include a 710 freeway tunnel under El Sereno. Supporters of the tunnel proposal said it could be funded by other government sources.   Daily News

  1. What moron would light fireworks during this massive fire season? What moron would promote this with a photo? Please explain.

  2. The 710 Tunnel idea sucks. It’s expensive and not worth the hassle. The only reason it is supported is for the freight trucks that will pollute even more of our local area, and people of Alhambra and surrounding area because of their bad traffic woes. How about figuring out another less expensive way of mitigating traffic, with better traffic light synchronization and building a few more bridges over the train tracks that divide Boyle Heights from NELA.
