The city's takeover of more than 1,000 acres surrounding the Bonita Canyon Dam should be a milestone for Irvine and its historic 1988 Open Space Agreement with the Irvine Co. Instead, the city may balk at the prospect of taking responsibility for the reservoir and the 18-acre parcel on which it sits. Maintenance costs could far outweigh the benefits of the wilderness area, city planners said. "We've continued to work with the Irvine Co.

City planning commissioners will delve into the subject of smut tonight in the hope that members of the public will never have to.

A proposal to build an apartment complex in an area surrounded by manufacturing and industrial buildings will be heard by the City Council tonight, five months after planning commissioners called the site one of the worst in the city. The Planning Commission denied the proposed 87-unit McGaw Apartments complex last August by a 4-1 vote. The commission said the site on McGaw Avenue west of Jamboree Road was too close to companies that use toxic chemicals and generate too much noise.

The Planning Commission late Thursday again denied a permit for a proposed 87-unit apartment complex surrounded by toxic chemical users, five months after its first rejection of the plan on the grounds that homes in the industrial area would be unsafe for residents. The commission, which denied plans for the proposed McGaw Apartments by a 3-2 vote Thursday, had rejected the apartment plan last August, but was asked by the City Council to look at the project again after the developer appealed.

Scientists were elated by the gesture, especially former students at Caltech, where Nobel Prize winner Robert Andrews Millikan "was a figure something like George Washington to us," said Lee Carleton, 78, a Huntington Beach resident who studied at Caltech while Millikan conducted pioneering research into cosmic rays.

For more than three decades, Irvine has been a model of planned growth, its rapidly increasing population drawn to the new homes, self-contained villages and attention to detail, right down to the landscaping in the street medians. And just as Irvine set the course for other new cities, it is now positioning itself to take on a new role: growing old gracefully. "The city is at a crossroads," Councilman Greg Smith said.

Boeing Co. will shutter its historic Anaheim defense facility and shift the operation's 3,700 jobs to Huntington Beach over the next four years, the aerospace giant said Friday. The facility, Anaheim's second-biggest employer after Disneyland, was the birthplace of the guidance systems for the world's first nuclear submarine and developed components for the manned space program. It boasted 36,000 workers at its Cold War peak.
