That would be one big-ass city. I'm not sure how large LA county is but a city being the size of an entire county...That wouldn't be great for the whole "L.A. isn't sprawlville" image.
Its failed by vote.chicagogeorge said:Why would L.A. city merge with L.A. county? Wasn't it a year ago that part of the (the Valley) city of L.A. wanted to secede? BTW, how close was that referendum?
Ya the merger will never happen, its never even been mentioned before. Anyways, the secession vote was defeated, not even close city wide, slight majority in the valley, somewhere between 50 and 51%. 5n the harbor area and Hollywood it was 75% againts.chicagogeorge said:Why would L.A. city merge with L.A. county?

LA County=About 10 million people, apparentlydjm19 said:I dont think LA county would have the same population as metro tokyo.
Yeah, such as the suburb, city-like Long Beach, Ca is bigger thanChrisLA said:It will never happen, LA suburbs aren't like many other cities burbs. The majority of them are incorrporated cities with their own mayors and local government. Now regarding LA spliting up, most everyone here already knew it wouldn't happen. In spite of LA lack of civic pride compared to other cities. The city still has a lot more pride than outsiders realize. Yes Angelenos can be very critical of their city, but they still love it and wouldn't leave. In fact most people I encounter in day to day coversation (I interact with the public) where I work will tell you they love it here. Many will add they have no desire to move anywhere else.
