    Promenade 2035 Project Has Community Support
    August 11
    Letter to the Editor by Stuart Waldman
    The Promenade 2035 project is consistent with the Warner Center 2035 Specific Plan, which received widespread community support and was adopted by the Los Angeles City Council in 2013 - a fact the author fails to acknowledge.
