Lawsuits in Arcadia over McMansions
I am surprised at the amount of comments, 29 so far.
A group called, Save the Arcadia Highlands
, is suing to stop construction of two large mansions in Northern Arcadia. They are using the CEQA, California Environmental Quality Act. I note on their website, at least one of the members is Chinese. Arcadia is 59% Chinese, and have been attracted by the excellent school district. I grew up in Monrovia, next door, so I am very familiar with Arcadia.

every year. And we will see what impact 3D Printing will have in the future.
