"[Rick Caruso] criticizes proponents of smart growth for pushing density as the solution to the city’s livability problems. 'You can’t just solve the traffic problem by saying we’re going to become denser, or have housing on top of retail, next to a bus stop or a subway. People still need to get around.'"That's one of many sound bites from Caruso, who was profiled in last week's LA Weekly (unfortunately, you don't get to hear more about his ideas for development), and who may very well be running for Mayor. LA Observed caught up with Caruso last night, and reports that the developer will make a decision by the end of next week. [LA Weekly/LA Observed]
