Hat Tip Cristina Calderone

Los Angeles City Council “HOME SIZE LIMITS OK'D” Read article “Ordinance aimed
at 'McMansions'” by Beth Barrett Los Angeles Daily News July 27, 2005

“The [Los Angeles] City Council gave preliminary approval Wednesday to an ‘anti-mansionization’ ordinance for the Sunland-Tujunga area of the San Fernando Valley, the first time it has specifically addressed restricting home size in Los Angeles.”

Councilwoman Wendy Greuel said “We're finding in communities homes are being built larger than is necessary, where quality of life is impacted and privacy issues have come up”.

“Burbank and Glendale already have regulations limiting the size of new homes that overshadow nearby ranch homes and bungalows.”
