Joel Kotkin celebrates the new epoch of the San Fernando Valley.
No longer the place to move from, the Valley is attracting new business and residents alike and is on its way to becoming the epicenter of Los Angeles culture. Affordable housing, easy access and a bustling economic role as a new home to industries ranging from entertainment to technology, make the Valley a force to be reckoned with. If all goes according to Joel Kotkin's plan, the power of the Valley will soon be recognized in Los Angeles political culture as well. His solution? Valley native, Joel Wachs, for mayor in 2001.
