Los Angeles County has just wrapped up an initiative to make homeowners more aware of a property tax breaks that go unclaimed each year. The figures are stunning. For example, some 435,000 families across the county could trim their tax bills by $70 a year by claiming the Homeowner’s Exemption. The largest number of unclaimed exemptions fall within the City of L.A. There are also property tax breaks for veterans, senior citizens and disabled homeowners.

Metro’s rendering of the one-car-lane-each-way proposal for Colorado Boulevard shows one car driving east toward Maywood Avenue and one parked car. The reality would be more crowded conditions for cars, though bicyclists and pedestrians would benefit.
