Cal State Northridge officials on Monday are expected to unveil plans for a scaled-down football stadium to be built on Lindley Avenue. Reducing the stadium's size from 15,000 seats to about 8,000 is an attempt to appease neighbors opposed to a larger facility, said David Honda, chairman of the university's athletic facilities site advisory committee. If approved by CSUN President Blenda J.

When Santa Ana school officials identified a piece of district-owned property as the site of a proposed high school a few years ago, they had only about five acres to build on--not nearly enough room for academic buildings and athletic facilities. But when the new high school opens in 2004, it will include a gymnasium, an auditorium, a football/soccer field with a track, softball and baseball diamonds, a parking structure and maybe even a swimming pool.

At least one school board member has not given up on building a $1.2 million stadium at the planned Northwood High School, even though Irvine Unified School District budget managers say the district can't afford it. When the new $51-million high school opens in the fall of 1997, it will have athletic fields, a gymnasium, athletic courts and locker rooms. But plans to construct a 5,000-seat stadium, 50-meter pool, an additional gymnasium and three tennis courts are on hold because of their $3.

Cal Lutheran University plans to build an athletic complex that includes two sports stadiums, a gym, a swimming pool, sports fields and a large parking lot on 200 acres of mostly pristine open space north of Olsen Road, according to city documents released Friday. Four years in the making, the proposal is part of a larger master plan for the campus over the next two decades that will be presented Tuesday to the City Council.

Construction, thy name is Olympics. Those who remember the last-minute dash in Athens in 2004 and recent visitors to 2008 host city Beijing might think that the five Olympic rings represent cranes, forklifts, hard hats, power tools and nuts and bolts. That, thankfully, won't be an area of concern should the Summer Olympics land in Los Angeles for a third time, down the road in 2016.

The former president of the National Assn. of Athletic Directors, speaking at a meeting of the Cal State Northridge Task Force on Intercollegiate Athletics on Monday, said that Northridge should "bite the bullet" and spend whatever money is necessary to upgrade its athletic facilities. "It all comes down to facilities," Dr. Fred Miller told a standing-room-only crowd of more than 100. "If you don't build a [big football] facility, who wants you?

A court ruling this week cleared the way for the city to begin work on a 26-acre, $7.7-million sports complex that proponents argue is badly needed in a city they say lacks recreational facilities. But opponents of the complex, who plan to appeal the Los Angeles Superior Court ruling, say the project would bring noise and heavy traffic to an otherwise quiet and peaceful neighborhood. "I am absolutely thrilled," said Nello Iacono, director of Glendale Parks, Recreation and Community Services.
