The suit was filed by San Remo, an Irvine partnership, Cameo Homes in Newport Beach, Glencrest Inc.

Like some kind of shopping siren, the reddish-brown, rectangular-block buildings beckon the Gelorminos every couple of weeks from the comfort of their Garden Grove home. They pack their two children into the car and take the 25-minute Saturday afternoon drive to Orange County's newest--and most controversial--retail complex, where they make their regular rounds through the home improvement, clothing and toy stores. Despite the attraction, though, Tustin Market Place leaves them cold.

After two years of exhaustive research and many walks around the city, Tustin's Cultural Resource Committee produced a survey of the city's historic buildings. "It was a labor of love," said Councilwoman Leslie Anne Pontious after the report was presented to the City Council last week. The survey identified 271 pre-1940 buildings, 94 of which were rated as "premier historic resources" on the basis of their historic significance, architectural style and uniqueness.

The proposal to close the massive Marine Corps Air Station here triggered a wave of speculation among real estate experts Friday that was slowed only by the realization that major problems threaten to complicate any sale. The base is on prime property, centrally located in a rapidly developing county where flat, buildable land is becoming scarce. But closing the base won't simply be a matter of turning around and selling it to a developer.

The Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved plans to build a shelter in North Tustin that will house up to 18 pregnant teenagers, despite objections from some residents who complained that the project is too large. Plans for the nonprofit Mary's Shelter call for the construction of a one-story structure in the 18200 block of 17th Street. A smaller shelter is now on the site.

North Tustin residents said Friday that they will express opposition to the inclusion of their community in the proposed Tustin general plan, which will go before the City Council on Monday. "We won't be waving placards or have an unmanageable crowd, but yes, we will protest," said Don Kragenbrink, president of the Foothill Communities Assn., which wants its 3,831-acre area left out of Tustin's planning document. The city completed its proposal for the general plan after three years of work.

The Planning Commission on Monday unanimously rejected a developer's request to rezone a recently annexed parcel. The rezoning would have paved the way for the development of up to 25 condominiums. When the 2.3-acre area at Holt and Warren avenues was annexed in 1989, some North Tustin residents opposed it, saying Tustin would rezone it to allow multifamily dwellings instead of the five houses that are there now.

From a distance, the meandering residential streets at the former Marine Corps Air Station in Tustin look much like the sleepy tree-lined cul-de-sacs of so many thriving master-planned communities in Orange County. Handsome duplexes, townhouses and apartment clusters fan out from a beckoning neighborhood playground. Baseball fields are a short walk away. But like the rest of the former military base, the dwellings that officers and their families once called home have been vacant since July.

About 75 parents and school administrators from Santa Ana were in Sacramento on Wednesday to lobby for bills that would give them 100 acres on which to build a new campus. Getting the property, part of the closed Tustin Marine Corps Air Facility, would ease overcrowding in the 60,000-student Santa Ana Unified School District, which now operates at double capacity, officials said.

Gray Davis for his signature. The bill, by Assemblyman Lou Correa (D-Anaheim), easily passed the Assembly in April. A similar bill by Sen. Joe Dunn (D-Santa Ana) also was approved earlier by the Senate. Sen.

Chanting, "Shame on Tustin" and "Do the right thing," about 300 people rallied Monday at Tustin City Hall to demand that the city give up 100 acres of its closed Marine base to two Santa Ana school districts for new campuses. The protest was the latest skirmish in an increasingly acrimonious dispute between the districts and Tustin.

Hopes for resolving a stubborn dispute between Tustin and two Santa Ana school districts over land at the closed Tustin Marine base evaporated this week after Tustin presented its final offer and the districts rebuffed it. "We're at a standstill," attorney Ruben A. Smith, representing the Santa Ana Unified School District, said Tuesday. "You can't negotiate with yourself." Tustin made significant concessions in recent weeks but isn't willing to go further, City Manager William A. Huston said.

They are neighbors, but these days, Santa Ana and Tustin are far from neighborly. Particularly when it comes to deciding the future of the mothballed Tustin Marine Corps Air Facility. And don't look for the relationship to improve any time soon. When the Department of the Navy approved Tustin's reuse plan for the 1,561-acre former helicopter base Feb.

An Assembly bill that would have forced Tustin to provide land at the closed Marine helicopter base for Santa Ana schools will not be introduced this week as planned, the bill's author said Thursday. Assemblyman Lou Correa (D-Anaheim) said some progress has been made in negotiations to resolve Tustin's dispute with the Santa Ana Unified and Rancho Santiago Community College districts. The city asked for more time, he said, so he agreed to hold off on his bill.

With its historic blimp hangars empty, its gates locked and weeds sprouting from cracked pavement, the shuttered Tustin air base has become a symbol of government at its slowest. For more than six years, the state, the city of Tustin, a fistful of school districts and the land's rightful owner--the Navy--have wrestled over the base's future. But that long struggle will reach an important juncture Dec.
