The Lemmon Valley area is set to get more than 200 new homes if a planned development moves forward, but residents in the area are fighting it, saying it will make their homes less safe.

Members of the Lemmon Valley/Swan Lake Recovery Committee were trying to stop the development using an appeal, but Tuesday afternoon the commission voted that the appeal wasn’t valid.

That came as a big disappointment to the appellants, who crowdfunded on social media to pay for the process.

"We had over 190 people donate for us to do this appeal," Lemmon Valley resident Tammy Holt-Still said. "None of these residents are being heard. It’s all developers and that’s it."

The publication dinged Los Angeles for high taxes, onerous regulations and a housing crisis.

Miami made the biggest-loser list because it lacks a major research universi...
