MacLaren Hall in El Monte, infamous in its history, is already expecting the construction of a new 5.6-acre park on a section of the 14-acre property. Now, there is a proposal for a large affordable housing project that, if approved, would provide 340 units, half of them for senior living. A vocational school and medical clinic would also be part of the deal. L.A. County Supervisor Hilda L. Solis of the First District is spearheading the enterprise. 'This is our opportunity to take a space with a dark history and convert it into a space of hope,' Solis said.
