Anaheim Bulletin (Newspaper) - September 17, 1992, Anaheim, California NORTH COUNTY NEWS T H K a H G E gC.0 P h T Y| NEWS FOCUS Between 1-5 and a feud Mobile home owners can't make move By Brett Sporich North County News Trapped between progress and a family feud, residents of the Golden Skies Mobile Home Park say they can't sell their homes. About 12 mobile homes in Golden Skies stand in the path of the Santa Ana (1-5) Freeway widening project and the other 140 coaches have been cut off from easy access to Midway Drive, two facts that residents say have devalued their trailers and prevented sales. More than 20 trailers are on the block but none has been sold for months, residents say. For 30 years, the Bostwick family managed Midway Trailer City and what is now known as Golden Skies, at 100 W. Mid way Drive between Anaheim Boulevard and the Santa Ana (I-5) Freeway. "It used to be one park until they started fighting and then they split it up and threw a wall between us, cutting us off from our main entrance on Clementine Street," said Marilyn Heath, a Golden Skies resident. The problem started when Golden Skies land owners, Howard and Edward Anderson, refused the Bostwicks' offer to renew a 30-year lease or sell their 10-acre parcel to them, Paul Bostwick said. After a lengthy legal battle, the Bostwick family sealed off three streets at their property line with a block wall topped by barbed wire. They also erected a long stretch of chainlink and barbed wire fence dividing the residents into two parks. While Bostwick said the walls and barbed wire were erected for privacy and security reasons, Golden Skies residents say the barriers were constructed out of spite and to create a con- Please see PARK/A4 Jack Hancock North County News Marilyn Heath peeks from one mobile home park to another where an access road sign was used to warn motorists.

MEETING Council scratches request for billiards parlor By Vesta Riggs North County News The City Council unanimously denied a request Tuesday for a 30-table pool room in a Knott Avenue retail center that has been cited numerous times in the past seven years for nuisance and zoning violations. The nine-unit center at 1203-1245 S. Knott Ave. includes a bowling alley and a liquor store. The property is surrounded by more retail stores and houses and is next to Hansen Elementary School. Both the planning and code enforcement departments recommended denial of the pool room permit, saying in a report that Magic Stix would be detrimental to the neighborhood." Owner William Jankowski told councilmen that he planned to refurbish the center and that his business was going to be an upscale billiard hall for adults 21 and older. Code enforcement staff members inspected the site last month and said they found two inoperable cars in the parking lot as well as a discarded mattress, wood, bottles and other waste. They surveyed nearby-residents and business owners who complained of excessive noise and loitering in the center, according to the report. Victoria Muhonen-Hernan-dez, principal of Hansen Ele mentary, urged the city not to allow a billiards parlor so close to the school. Jankowski said he didn't think Magic Stix would affect the school. In other action, an ordinance was introduced allowing a $2 increase on all parking citations. The hike is in response to the state Department of Motor Vehicle's increase in administrative fees charged to the city. THURSDAY, SEPT. 17, 1992 TRANSPORTATION Caltrans acquires parcels 1-5 widening lines yet to be drawn By Anne M. Peterson North County News Caltrans officials have acquired 38 core parcels of land necessary to widen the Santa Ana Freeway through Anaheim and Orange. Core parcels are those homes, businesses or land that are completely engulfed by the proposed $900 million widening from the Garden Grove Freeway interchange north to the Riverside Freeway. Other plots of land to be acquired include full-take parcels - in which the majority of the land is needed for the project and part-take parcels in which only a small chunk is necessary. Because widening lines haven't been finalized, full- and part-take parcels won't be acquired until October. Acquiring right-of-way land is the first step for the 2.9 mile, five-segmented project to begin. Construction, however, isn't scheduled until late 1996 or early 1997. Of the 38 core plots, 33 are residential and five are commercial properties. No businesses will be relocated, however, because the buildings were vacant. More than 140 core parcels have yet to be acquired. The widening from six lanes to 12 is nearly completed between the El Toro Y and the Santa Ana and Costa Mesa freeways interchange..
