TV Evangelist Nixes Oil Refinery
Jan. 25, 2002
SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif. (AP) _ Television evangelist and businessman Pat Robertson has abandoned plans to reopen an oil refinery on a 100-acre site in this Los Angeles suburb, opting instead to develop a business park.
Environmental groups had opposed the plan and city officials have been working with Robertson's company, CENCO Refining, for several months to explore alternatives. The refinery closed in 1995.
``CENCO will work with the city and the development community to do a mixed-use business park development in three phases,'' said City Manager Fred Latham.
