  1. The area started to deteriorate in 1992, when the General Motors assembly plant in Panorama closed with the loss of 2,600 jobs.
    Business flight from high costs and a construction industry recession didn’t help, plus the ’94 earthquake, left abandoned buildings and empty lots.

    A vacum was left, when the $18 per hour factory workers left and the area around Van Nuys Blvd eventually morphing with residents who live below the poverty line at three times the county average.

    Cue: The Transformers – The Metropolitan Transportation Authority, who are scheduled to plow through the area in 2021, bringing trains, trains, trains, by 2027.
    9.2 miles of rail under the guise of providing transportation to an underserved community. 14 stations stretching from Van Nuys, Panorama City, Arleta, Pacoima and San Fernando.

    I have a feeling Van Nuys Blvd will be re-born similar to Colorado Blvd in Old Town Pasadena.
    Officials hope that the Van Nuys line and the Orange Line dedicated busway will transport spectators to the Sepulveda Basin to watch equestrian events and canoeing during the 2028 Summer Olympics, but first, the favela shanty town will need to be bulldozed away.

    Maybe the free dick will see a business opportunity and start charging.
