End Of The Line For L.A. River Park
A plan to save a historic site near the Los Angeles River from industrial development failed last week. Mayor Richard Riordans 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. The River Station Industrial Park could rise beside a new Blue Line station in 2002.
