They are its called Measure R (http://www.metro.net/measurer/rail_expansion.html - broken link) .Los Angeles to me will have a good future but the water issue dam..They might have to look at desalination we have plenty of Salt water.Hope fully we could get some rain today it was 90 degress in I.E. Today.I Though it was Winter.

Grand Rapids is a place to watch among the second tier. One of the founders of Amway decided to endow a multi-billion dollar medical research complex downtown, and the city is using that to try to lure even more biotech industries to the area. They've got more LEED-certified buildings per capita than any place in the country, they're doing some interesting things with public and alternate transportation options. And this is in addition to the ongoing gentrifiction of the downtown area, which has seen a new arena and two new museums.

No one knows if the biotech plans are going to work, but consensus is that they need a big bold plan if a Rust Belt city their size is going to be able to stay relevant and thrive.

Eh Houston can compete with L.A ( in which city has a better skyline and economy wise). Houston is growing Fast. 42,000+ jobs added in Nov 2007 to Nov 2008 and L.A losing 60,000+ jobs. Houston adding 100,000+ ppl each year (not including the metro area.) Better job opprotnities here, home prices WAYY less in Houston than in L.A. and Houston skyline is bigger than L.A (which is a shame for its population.) Asians (and other races) fleeing to Houston and realizing they can do more here. Houston has a better freeway system than L.A and not every freeway is clogged up here in Houston like L.A's

No, actually Houston is developed differently from L.A. In Houston there is no zoning, trees (tall trees), bayous, tons of grit,etc.

You'll find places in Houston that resemble L.A. but overall, the cities look different and feel different.
