Many of the neighbors are throwing an absolutely fit because, despite this area being served by metro-rail and several bus routes, the neighbors are worried they won't be able to park directly in front of their homes. Santa Monica is allowing no off-street parking and it won't even get the Expo line extension until 2025.
The expo line extension is going to be there in 2015 not 2025. Santa Monica is certainly a city where this can be pulled off.
