Waving banners and playing drums, an estimated crowd of 250 marched about a mile from a swap meet on Glenoaks Boulevard to City Hall to protest a developer's plans to build a major retail center that would close the swap meet. The proposed development on 36 acres of privately owned land would replace the swap meet with a home improvement store and a discount department store, as well as small businesses.

Led by Councilman Richard Ramos' campaign to improve a park he used regularly as a child, the City Council this week unanimously approved $378,000 to refurbish Pioneer Park. The money will be used to purchase field lights and remodel restrooms and concession stands, among other things, Ramos said. The 5.2-acre park has two baseball fields, basketball and tennis courts, a picnic area and a roller hockey rink. "That park has not received any money in eight years," Ramos said.

To accommodate a larger crowd, Monday's City Council meeting has been moved from the council chambers to the gym at nearby Recreation Park. The City Council had been scheduled to pick between two developers to revitalize downtown with projects calling for such additions as restaurants and retail outlets. But one developer, Victor Georgino, withdrew his proposal Wednesday. That left the proposal of San Fernando developer Pueblo Contracting Services on the table.

A development firm from Diamond Bar is pouring over San Fernando's financial data, real estate records and crime reports in an attempt to help the 2.4-square-mile city come up with a new economic growth plan. GRC Coppenhaver was awarded a contract not to exceed $37,600 by the City Council last month. Funds for the study come from a federal grant administered by the Los Angeles Community Development Commission for areas struck by the Jan. 17 Northridge earthquake.

One faction wants a theater complex that will feature Latino cinema, in an effort to encourage and perpetuate the culture of the city's majority residents. Another, representing a population that is largely second- and third-generation Latin American, wants mainstream American movie fare for themselves and their families.
