Azusa Foothill Drive-in update

Several items of note...

Today, the lawsuit APU filed against the State Historic Resource Commission was heard in Superior Court. The judge dismissed all but one of the six "causes of action" in the case - essentially all of the issues having to do with the CA register designation being a financial burden and an infringement of APU's First Amendment rights to the free exercise of religion. The judge did not believe that the university had a case at this time due to the fact that they have not actually proposed a development plan for the site. She set another hearing for March to find out what the status of the case will be at that point.

The one cause of action not dismissed will be heard in another court as soon as the administrative record has been prepared. We are not sure of a date yet.

The university is moving its plans forward. Here is the latest regarding the community meetings taking place:

APU to Host Community Forums

This October, Azusa Pacific University will host a series of forums concerning the campus development plan. The first two meetings will focus on sharing the university’s vision and listening to input from community members. The second two meetings will focus on planning, incorporating important feedback from the first meetings. After all of these meetings, the university will submit the formal campus development plan to the city and anticipate the City Council’s consideration of the initiative in spring 2003.

Here is the Case number BC274893 if you want to track it on the L.A. County Superior Court Civil Case information. The next hearing is mid March according to the website.

The San Gabriel Valley Tribune 10/3 front page makes it sound as though the university had won the lawsuit. I hope that you will send a letter to the editor to define what really happened!

(: Thanks for the update - without all the legalese...
