With the election a week away, contributions continue to trickle in for two growth-control measures on the municipal ballot.

Measure T supporters received an additional $33,000, bringing their total to $362,061, according to reports filed through Monday. The campaign has spent $378,324 so far.

In a report filed Friday, the California Business Properties Assn. political action committee topped the list of new contributors with $15,000, followed by Valencia-based Newhall Land & Farming Co. with $5,000, and $2,500 eachfrom Costa Mesa-based the Keith Companies and Kleinfelder of San Diego.

An additional $8,000 was reported Monday.

Measure T would add parts of the city's traffic-phasing ordinance to the city charter and nullify Measure S, should voters approve both measures.

Measure S, also known as "Greenlight," proposes to put before a citywide vote any development that allows an increase of more than 100 peak-hour car trips or dwelling units or is 40,000 square feet over the General Plan allowance.

Greenlight supporters received $1,000 from Kenneth Colbaugh, a consultant in Corona del Mar, as well as $10,271 in postage, printing costs and flier designs from Stop the Dunes Hotel, a group opposing a proposed hotel and convention center at the Newport Dunes. This brings contributions supporting Measure S to $76,381, with $51,149 spent so far.
