The Eastsider L.A. brings discouraging word that not only has Los Angeles City College dropped plans to build a satellite campus at the old Van de Kamp's bakery site, but on Tuesday night an L.A. College District official promised a community meeting “that the fence surrounding what is currently called the Northeast Campus

will be decorated with cupcakes, cookies and sheaves of wheat in honor

of the bakery.”

Sweet dreams: LACC's Northeast campus

Change you can taste, in other words. Blaming the economy, LACC says it will now only lease out one part of its Glassell Park property to a jobs resource center and another part to a charter school.
