The National Guard wants to open a large regional facility at the site of a former rock processing plant in Azusa that would be home base for 600 guardsmen and 300 military vehicles, city officials said. Officials for the National Guard and the Owl Rock Products have presented a proposal to the city council for a nearly 100,000-square-foot facility to be built on the 15-acre site at Todd and Sierra Madre avenues, Mayor Cristina Madrid said.

The 1958 sci-fi thriller "The Blob" ends with "The End" melting into an unsettling question mark. This sequence, projected through a steady drizzle onto the screen of Los Angeles County's last old-style single-screen drive-in, pretty much sums up the beleaguered theater's predicament. The property is in a prolonged escrow with Azusa Pacific University, the private Christian school that flanks the 19-acre drive-in. The school has purchased the land for redevelopment as part of its campus.

The City Council has approved a $1.6-million make-over for the city's downtown that calls for the narrowing of Azusa Avenue, landscaping, teak benches and ornate lighting. The project, approved by the council Wednesday night, will stretch between Fifth and Ninth avenues, with work beginning as early as next spring. "We want to make the downtown attractive," said Mayor Cristina Madrid. "We want it to be a destination for people."

Azusa residents have resoundingly defeated three measures that would have allowed 1,602 homes to be built on one of the world's largest commercial nursery sites. The vote came late Tuesday, more than six months after the City Council originally approved the so-called Rosedale project on a 3-2 vote. More than 60% of nearly 4,000 voters rejected the project, a development by Upland-based Lewis Homes and the Monrovia Nursery. It would have covered the city's last major stretch of agricultural land.

The developer of a massive housing development on a nursery in Azusa is expected to announce that the project will be reduced from 2,103 units to 1,800, a city official said. The proposed downsizing of the Rosedale development comes after a city draft environmental impact report for the project suggested that its density be reduced. City Councilman Dick Stanford said details of the reductions in size of the Rosedale housing project will be made public next Wednesday by developer Lewis Homes.

The city attorney has determined that City Council members would not face conflict of interest in voting on a huge housing development that is near the homes of all five members. The potential conflict of interest could have disqualified every council member from voting on the proposed 2,000-home Rosedale project by Lewis Homes in northeast Azusa. But an appraiser determined that the 520-acre development would have little or no impact on the values of the council members' houses. City Atty.

A citizens group that includes the mayor announced Tuesday that it will gather voters' signatures in an effort to block the 1,602-home Rosedale development. Mayor Cristina Madrid said the group expects to gather 1,500 signatures by Feb. 18 to qualify for a citywide referendum on the development, planned on the site of one of the world's largest commercial nurseries.

Faced with the daunting prospect of a proposed 2,138-home development on a nursery near its eastern border, Azusa's city leaders are turning to a nonprofit agency designed to help local government be more effective. The Local Government Commission began three days of workshops and meetings Thursday with City Council members, planning commissioners and city staff to discuss Lewis Homes' Rosedale development project on 520 acres of the Monrovia Nursery.

Residents have collected enough signatures to force the City Council to repeal its approval of a 520-acre housing development or call a special election to let voters decide on the project. Azusans for a Better Community collected the signatures of more than the 10% of the city's 15,337 registered voters, City Clerk Adolf Solis said.

Environmental change--from polluted streams to congested highways and overdeveloped land--is affecting the quality of life across the nation. Such change is gradual and often goes unnoticed while it happens. To measure how various areas have been affected over the decades, The Times dispatched reporters to the places where they grew up. This occasional series of articles examines how our hometown environments have been altered--for better or for worse.
