A 2 1/2-year citizens' battle over a controversial warehouse is still not over. Citizens for Sensible Development, which has fought the Shaw Carpet warehouse at Valley View Street and Orangewood Avenue, says it is now taking its case to the state Supreme Court. "This is the kind of case that the Supreme Court may choose to address in order to clear up inconsistencies in how the law is administered by the lower courts," said Daniel Wildish, attorney for the citizens group.

For years, a two-acre site on Grindlay street was vacant. Then an innovative program by the City Council, Cypress School District trustees and developer Leon Hyter transformed it into Cypress Park Senior Community, a housing center for older residents, a cooperative effort that will be recognized today by the state. Gov. Pete Wilson is to present Cypress officials a Helen Putnam Award for Excellence.

An appeals court said Tuesday that it has rejected the plea of a group of homeowners in south Cypress who have battled for 2 1/2 years against having a large carpet-distribution warehouse in their neighborhood. City Atty. John E. Cavanaugh said the ruling by the 4th District Court of Appeal in Santa Ana upheld city government's action in approving the controversial warehouse in September 1994. "It was a unanimous decision of the three Court of Appeal judges," Cavanaugh said.

After several residents protested, the City Council has delayed action on a proposal for a carwash to be built at Valley View and Cerritos streets and agreed to reconsider the issue in 45 days. The proposal calls for a combination carwash, gas station, mini-market and lube-and-tune outlet on the site of a former Unocal 76 service station at that intersection. A crowd of south Cypress residents attended the council meeting last week to oppose the project.

Like a ghost from the past, a warehouse development that triggered a legal battle and an unsuccessful recall election in Cypress in 1995 was once again before a court on Wednesday. Justices on the 4th District Court of Appeal listened to arguments about whether a proper environmental impact report had been prepared before a 439,650-square-foot carpet-distribution warehouse was built at Valley View Street and Orangewood Avenue in Cypress.

As construction at the Business Park area along Katella Avenue and Valley View Street proceeds, city officials have commissioned a traffic study to make sure that the development is not having any adverse effects. The City Council this week approved a $6,400 contract for a survey after Community Development Director Chris Kelly pointed out that approval for the development was linked to traffic forecasts. A new study will see how accurate the forecasts have been, she said.

When Mayor Walter K. Bowman looks at Lincoln Avenue, he sees blight but envisions a bustling shopping and entertainment district with cinemas and restaurants. That dramatic turnaround might happen, he says, if the city and the private sector pull together. "Lincoln Avenue used to be a major shopping area, and I think it can be returned to that," Bowman said.

A lawyer representing residents who have opposed a large carpet-distribution warehouse at Valley View Street and Orangewood Avenue said Monday that the legal battle is continuing. Attorney Daniel Wildish said the homeowners' appeal of a lower-court decision is still being pursued before the 4th District Court of Appeal in Santa Ana. "I recently filed a brief, and we expect to get an early hearing because this is an environmental matter," Wildish said.
