IS IT NIMBYISM, OR SOMETHING MORE?
The Miracle Mile neighborhood in Los Angeles appears, from the aerial photos, to be bounded by Wilshire, Olympic, Highland, and Fairfax. The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is on Wilshire, adjacent to the northwest corner of the neighborhood. There are large commercial properties lining the south side of Wilshire, abutting the neighborhood.
It sounds like LACMA is building new buildings on its existing site. Hard for me to see how the neighbors could be finding fault with that, but apparently they are.
At least one commentator is suggesting that the neighborhood opposition is a shakedown by the neighbors to get amenities for the neighborhood. Hard for me to see how that would work.
