Fed by a booming economy, proposed housing developments that were abandoned during the recession are sprouting up against the steep slopes of the San Gabriel Mountains, edging ever closer to the Angeles National Forest. Such construction, critics say, raises an age-old question in a county consistently racked by earthquakes, floods and fires: Are there places where disasters are so predictable that they should not be built on?

In an effort to attract more large-scale development, a group of San Gabriel Valley cities is considering a marketing project to develop a distinct image for what one official called the "faceless" area.
