Is anyone up on what exactly is going on with any train station going into Glendora? First there was suppossed to be property on Lone Hill near the freeway for a train station. That didn't happen. Then a station was going to go in just south of the post office on Glendora Avenue with condos. They even had a contest
and some young man won for his orange grove theme. I just haven't been keeping up with everything, I know they are going ahead with homes on that property, maybe a gated community. Is a train station going to be there or not? Anyone know the latest? Thanks for the info.

Smoke and mirrors, the land was owned by the city of Glendora at one time then they sold it off, wth hopes of making million$
That was 8 years ago!
Bare land and NO buildings as of yet.
Keep your fingers crossed.

SCAG does have a track record for making disastrous, and at time hilarious, projection errors.
If you remember back around 2006 one of the more repeated arguments in favor of high density overdevelopment in our downtown area (the now widely reviled "Downtown Specific Plan") was SCAG's "visioning" prediction that millions of new residents were on their way to California.
And unless we built to accommodate the needs of all of these new arrivals there would be massive housing shortages and we in Glendora, California would be left out of all that easy money.
Current demographic data shows just how wrong SCAG was.
The great California exodus of this decade has led to a population stagnation here, leaving a significant amount of the high-density development built on SCAG's recommendation in the previous decade unsold, glut and laying dead on the market even today.
