Episode #44: Temples and Transformations
Join us this week as we visit with Jackie Miller, historian at the Parsonage of Sister Aimee Semple McPherson, about the design and construction of the monumental Angelus Temple which opened on New Year’s Day, 1923 at the north end of Echo Park. We’ll also talk with Tom Rothmann, the Senior City Planner charged with revamping Los Angeles’ nearly 70-year-old municipal zoning code for the needs of the 21st Century.
We’ll also discuss corrupt Bell City Manager Robert Rizzo’s scheme to create a Southeast LA “super city,” good news about an endangered Wallace Neff house in Beverly Hills, the pending sale of the former CRA/LA Angels Knoll plot, protests over limited Southwest Museum access, the negative impacts of private conservancies on city parks, the start of the MTA Linkages study, a chance to contribute to the John Parkinson documentary, upcoming Pershing Square task force meetings and the sparing of Brentwood’s Barry Building. All this and more and Kim & Richard usher in the week of November 18th, 2013.
