The project, a Wednesday announcement said, 'will produce goods and obs and hopes." Celes King, head of the Los Angeles chapter of | :he National Association 'or the Advancement of Colored People, praised the plan as a partial answer to the crucial prob- em of jobs in the Negro community. "Unemployment is our ;reatest problem," he said, "the unemployment rate in Watts is 10 points higher than the national average." * * * * THE PARK, to be developed by the nonprofit iconomic Resources Corporation, a biraciai group of businessmen, will be located at the easternmost part of the South Central Los Angeles community ?nown as Watts-Willow- irook. Secretary of Commerce VTorris H. Stans in Washington said the 34.5-acre site is now occupied mostly by junkyards and "other facilities of little economic value." He said the project will not require any residents to move. King noted in Los Angeles that several similar plans previously proposed would have meant relocation of residents. ''Most people in the community will applaud this move," he said, "because it does not displace people." The Aerojet G e n e r a l Corp. was the first major firm to launch a business enterprise in Watts after the 1965 riots. Its Watts manufacturing company is located in the center of Watts. * * * * AEROJET President R. I. McKenzie praised the new industrial park plan, saying: "A partnership of government and private industry is the best approach. In our opinion, private industry can best provide meaningful jobs for the residents of the ghettos and give these citizens the chance to break out of the poverty cycle. "But industry cannot do the job alone," he added. "It is very difficult and very expensive to start a ghetto plant from scratch and bring it to a sound operating level. With some special financial help from the government, we think it will work." Jay Jackson, director of t h e Economic Resources Corporation office in Los Angeles, said clearing of the land would begin within 45 days. Funding of the program was called by the Commerce Department "a new approach to meeting the pressing needs of aging, compacted urban areas." * * * * THE P R O J E C T was announced at a Washington press conference at which the Lockheed Aircraft Corp. signed a lease with the corporation for a 6.5-acre section on which the firm will construct a $2-million parts plant that will hire and train 300 persons within four years. The Commerce Department's Economic Development Administration is lending the corporation $3.8 million for development of the industrial park and a matching $3.8- million grant from the Office of Economic Opportunity will be used by the corporation for low-interest loans for businesses in the area and for social- betterment activities. Corporation presidenl Richard Allen, who signed a 25-year lease with Lockheed president A. Car] Kotchian, estimated that the industrial park will create 2,400 jobs by the time it is fully developed during the next 5 years. Of the Commerce loan, $2.8 million is being made available immediately and the balance is being held in reserve. The amount al- loted Wednesday will go for: --A $755,000 program clearance, including access roads, grading and utilities. --An $808,000 sevice center to include space for training, administration, health and community services. These will include an auditorium available for use by groups in the vicinity. --A Si-million complex of buildings available for use by commercial and light industrial enterprises. The site is bounded by Alameda St., Imperial Hwy., 124th St. and Mona Blvd. and is within the cities of Compton and Lynwood as well as unincorporated territory. Allen expressed confidence that his corporation's industrial park and other activities will provide a "catalyst for the economic recovery" of the Watts- Willowbrook district. ^ M Every time you come InlCi At over 3000 Stendird Stations Participating Chevron Dealers NO PURCHASE NECESSA .
