Rightsizing Los Angeles Government
By Ronald Oakerson

This article appeared in the Spring 2005 issue of The Independent Review


Abstract

Lack of local control is at the root of recent efforts by Los Angeles residents to redraw the city’s boundaries, revise subcity governments or boroughs, and establish neighborhood councils. If city governments are to meet the needs of local communities, procedures must be established so that the scale of municipal authority can be adjusted to match the desired performance.
