assignment, you must identify an important debate happening somewhere within the City of Los Angeles. The debate must involve the use of private and/or public space.

· What are the arguments being made about this site’s use?
· Who exactly are the main players/actors in this urban space debate? (citizen groups, activists, developers, local city govt., state agencies, etc.) Don’t be vague!
· How do you identify and define these actors if they seem to fall into particular groups? Is it as simple as “pro” vs. “con”?
· Give me a small bit of history to help us understand the issue, the area, and its previous use(s).
