Our readers say: "Arcadia should have been a great Mid-Century resource of Modern homes, interspersed with what was a nationally significant collection of of California Ranches. Unfortunately, the remodeling, updating and McMansionization of Arcadia has caused irreparable damage to the historic character and context, and a loss of integrity that fully compromises the significance of the resource from a historic preservation standpoint. Anything, WE do now is too little, too late, especially north of Lafayette Blvd. We must do a historical significance survey before the survivors are trashed."
