For decades the community of Glen Avon and, more recently, Jurupa Valley have been known for being the home of one the nation's most polluted places: the Stringfellow acid pits. Jurupa Valley officials are looking change that negative image. They are proposing to do that in part by luring stores, restaurants, offices and maybe even a hotel to a strip of land in a prominent location along the 60 Freeway — just below the Stringfellow site. 'It's astounding, really, what occurred out there,' said Joe Perez, the city's community development director.
