Update on Los Angeles’ Backwards Parkway Regulations

It looks like Councilman Wesson has temporarily suspended enforcement of parkway planting rules. This is in response to Steve Lopez’s LA Times column that profiled two parkway vegetable gardens that the city busted.

A tip of the hat to Mr. Lopez for his good deed. We will all need to keep our eyes on the council and the Bureau of Street Services to make sure that the changes they make reflect common sense.

And at the risk of tooting my own horn, I pointed out the foolishness of LA’s parkway regs back in 2010.

  1. OK quick!!! Everyone go out and plant something edible on your parkway! Seriously, if enough people do it, maybe the city will feel foolish about enforcing their stupid rule.

  2. So glad to hear this. I read the LA Times article and it was very disheartening. I thought my hometown had come into the 21st century on this. But now at least there’s hope!
