After dropping plans for an auto mall on a prime site near Interstate 5, a developer is now asking the city for permission to build a 289,950-square-foot outdoor shopping mall. The site plans submitted Wednesday to city planners ended months of speculation in the community over what might be built on the 49-acre site. "This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity in this area to take advantage of a high-volume freeway site," said Mission Viejo Co.

"At times, I saw flames shooting up 30 feet," said Tom Cogdell, manager of South County Brake Supply.

Councilwoman Cindy Greengold opposed the change, arguing that requiring cars to merge into the left two lanes might be hazardous. "I'm just concerned about accidents happening," she said.

The massive, four-year El Toro Y improvement project, aimed to cure chronic traffic congestion at the confluence of the Santa Ana and San Diego freeways, is nearing completion, but motorists' frustration with the seemingly endless road work is a high as ever.
