This is a very good editorial in today's Daily News regarding post-orange Sunland Tujunga, very progressive in spirit:
Sunland-Tujunga community leaders have already begun the work. They surveyed their neighbors and hope to develop a kind of town center, with a national retailer, such as a Target or a Kohl's, alongside restaurants and smaller shops. They've consulted two architects to see whether this vision could become a reality, and the feedback so far is generally positive.
However, community activists will have to work fast and smart.
True on the whole. While developer-doormat Gail Goldberg shops around her various "community" plans in that fake Bush-era way, saying one thing but intending another, the community of Sunland Tujunga now stands poised with enough political power to issue its own de facto permits, and endorse the kind of development it wants at the site on Foothill north of Commerce.
