Commissioner Sue Himmelrich (“Architects: Downtown Specific Plan too specific,” Nov. 8) said that Ventura, Santa Ana, and Fresno would not be her “model cities for what Santa Monica should look like.” This is quite obvious in view of the generic, soon to be dated, box-style developments currently going up in Santa Monica, juxtaposed with the aforementioned cities, where city leaders are striving to preserve the character, scale and charm of their cities. I’ll take cake over spam any time.
