The council voted 5 to 0 Monday night to rescind the city's purchase of the Lido Estates Mobilehome Park, a 121-space complex at Avenue I and 26th Street East.

City officials have joined forces with private business owners in two deals aimed at putting an office building on Lancaster Boulevard and a new golf center in an east side industrial area. To encourage the construction of the 7,000-square-foot office building, City Council members Monday approved a development agreement with Ronald A. Green, owner of several McDonald's franchises in the Antelope Valley. Green has told city officials that his present office building is too small.

A 17-year campaign by authorities in the Antelope Valley to get water board member Glenn Martin to clean up junk strewn in and around his Lancaster house ended when the city demolished the fire-damaged structure with a trio of bulldozers.

To find out what Lancaster residents have on their minds, the city next week will launch the largest survey in its history. Beginning Wednesday, 120 volunteers will begin telephoning residents at random, asking them if they are willing to rank proposed solutions to city problems and to suggest ways of improving the quality of life. If they agree to participate, the volunteers will send them a four-page questionnaire. The goal is to get at least 1,500 people to respond.

Lancaster has been outbid in its attempt to buy the remains of two partly built, abandoned housing tracts--but that doesn't change plans to partially burn one of them for a movie, city and federal officials said Monday. Officials of the federal government's Resolution Trust Corp., which seized the tracts after the failure of the savings and loan that financed them, declined to reveal who submitted the winning bids.

The Antelope Valley's two major cities have failed to agree on a proposal to create a new regional group responsible for coordinating efforts to lure businesses and jobs to the high desert. Palmdale Mayor Jim Ledford proposed the creation of the government and private industry group Tuesday night during a joint meeting of the Palmdale and Lancaster city councils, saying the region needs a single new organization that can represent the entire valley.
