A plan to save a historic site near the Los Angeles River from industrial development failed last week. Mayor Richard Riordan’s newly appointed Central Area Planning Commission, meeting for only the second time since the new City Charter created it, voted 4-1 in favor of a 32-acre warehouse-and-factory project in the deserted and polluted Cornfields railroad yard, the last expanse of open space east of Chinatown.
