La Jolla Energy Development Inc., in a letter to the state Energy Commission, said it was withdrawing its application for fast-track approval of the 53-megawatt plant and "will not pursue the Baldwin facility in the future."

But Davis also signed the measure creating the Baldwin Hills Conservancy, a state agency charged with acquiring and managing the land.

Despite offering some of the best views in the Los Angeles Basin, the Baldwin Hills have had a tough time earning their due respect. They've been scalped and terraced, deluged by a burst dam in 1963 and pecked away by hundreds of creaking oil pumps for more than 70 years.
