      Transit Village as Wave of Future
      MTA's proposed rail station developments hope to boost
      areas and metro ridership.
      By MORRIS NEWMAN, Special to The Times

      Developer Michael Dieden is creating a village at the Blue Line
      station in South Pasadena, even though the first train won't pull in
      for three more years. At the depot site on Mission Street he plans
      to build a market and cafe, condos, artists' lofts and scads of
      parking for commuters and shoppers.
      Dieden ...describes his company, Creative Housing Associates,
      as "socially and environmentally responsible" because its projects
      promote transit use and high-density housing. "We have an
      obligation to get as many of us out of cars and into mass transit as
      possible."

      ...Maybe Mr. Dieden could be persuaded to consider the carfree concept?

        Sounds like Mr. Dieden could be a valuable ally in our efforts:
