Concerned that recent changes in federal telecommunications laws may produce an explosion of towers and antennas across the city, officials are taking steps to regulate the equipment. The Telecommunications Reform Act, signed into law earlier this year by President Clinton, was a sweeping reform of the industry. It removed monopoly protections so that telephone companies, cable companies and others in the communications industry now can compete in each other's markets.

City officials got an earful from about 30 residents who attended a town hall meeting this week at Laurel Elementary School. Although attendance was lower than expected at the meeting Wednesday night, there were spirited discussions about a variety of community issues. Margie McMillan, president of the Laurel School PTA, said she is worried that single-family houses are giving way to condominium units in the neighborhoods close to the school at 200 S. Flower Ave.

Despite a legal challenge to the city's effort to acquire three properties on south Brea Boulevard, city officials said their plans for widening the street will not be affected. Marina Vega, who owns property at 224-228 S. Brea Blvd., has agreed that the city has a right to the purchase of sections of her land for development, but not to the entire property. Office complexes, a house and a storage yard now occupy the land.

The City Council last week voted to rezone 27.7 acres at the northwest corner of Berry Street and Northwood Avenue to allow construction of 97 single-family homes.

The City Council has tentatively approved zoning changes and an amendment to Brea's land-use plan to allow construction of a 108-unit apartment complex for senior citizens. The project is proposed for a two-acre site on North Brea Boulevard near West Central Avenue. The vote last week was 4 to 0 in favor of the project. Councilman Burnie Dunlap abstained because he is the director of insurance services at Brea Community Hospital, which is near the proposed apartment site.

A proposed zoning change designed to encourage historic preservation in Brea has been sent back to the city attorney's office for reworking. The City Council and the public are concerned that buildings would be designated historic against the wishes of property owners.

The City Council has tentatively approved an ordinance designating certain areas in the city where bookstores, cabarets, movie theaters and other establishments showing adult-oriented entertainment may be allowed. With the unanimous vote last week, the council moved closer to putting in place a permanent ordinance; a temporary one was adopted in 1992 and extended twice, each time for six months.

Mynes lives on Redwood Avenue, a quiet street of about 20 homes which the City Council four years ago designated as a historic block. The plan was to move historic homes from elsewhere in the city to Redwood and then to renovate them to showcase the community's architectural heritage. But, Mynes said, "it's been a nightmare.
