Home prices are surging in LA's 
priciest neighborhoods

Home Prices across Los Angeles are rapidly approaching pre-recession levels, with the median home price in LA County  rising to $549,000 last month, according to a recent report from CoreLogic.

But some neighborhoods are experiencing more explosive growth in home prices than others, and a new  heat map from The MLS shows that prices are surging in some of LA's most exclusive communities.

The map, which tracks recent single-family home sales recorded by the listing service, indicates that tony areas such as Brentwood, Beverly Hills, and Cheviot Hills have seen median sale prices rise significantly over the last year


F or so many years, people did exactly what James T. Butts Jr. told them to do.
It works like that when you are a police chief and your officers must follow every command. But after Butts got elected mayor of Inglewood in 2011, he ran smack into a couple of City Council members who kept opposing him.

"The meetings were clown shows," he recalls. "When you're used to order and discipline ... it was tough to take."

So the mayor dipped into his campaign funds, lent tens of thousands to help a businessman and a former police buddy defeat the incumbents, and created a council in which, he says, "everyone is dialed in that there is one quarterback."


SCLN is proud to honor Inglewood Mayor James T. Butts, Jr. as one of Southern California Leadership Network's 30-in-30, a campaign to celebrate SCLN's 30 th   anniversary by honoring 30 outstanding alumni throughout 2017.

Mayor Butts is a graduate of Leadership L.A. 2001 and has 45 years of public service experience including 19 years in the Inglewood Police Department rising to the rank of Deputy Chief and 15 years as the Chief of Police for the City of Santa Monica. He was elected Jan. 11, 2011 as the City of Inglewood's 12th mayor. In less than five years, his strategic vision and operational expertise prevented impending bankruptcy of the city.

Los Angeles Super Bowl Pushed Back to 2022 Due Construction Delays at Inglewood Stadium

Call it the Super Bowl Reshuffle.

Five days after the Rams announced their Inglewood stadium would be finished in 2020, a year later than the original plan, the  NFL is looking at pushing back the Los Angeles Super Bowl by a year until February 2022.

Tampa will play host to the 2021 game.

Owners of the league's 32 teams gathered Tuesday for their annual one-day May meeting and decided to giving L.A. some breathing room rather than moving forward with the unprecedented plan of a stadium playing host to a Super Bowl in its inaugural season.
