Swap Meet Parking Found

In an effort to defuse a controversy that might cause revocation of a permit allowing swap meets at its Edwards Drive-in Theater near Arcadia, Edwards Cinemas has purchased property for off-street parking.

Residents of the unincorporated county area and parishioners from a nearby church have registered numerous complaints about traffic and parking problems stemming from the meet, which is open from 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.

The meet attracts about 10,000 shoppers in about 1,000 cars each day it operates.
