Hollywood redevelopment critics this week began listening to tapes of meetings to determine whether the citizens group advising the Community Redevelopment Agency was illegally constituted in 1984. The tapes were recorded at about 30 meetings over the past two years by the Hollywood Redevelopment Project Area Committee. The committee voted Monday to make the tapes available after critics contended that they contained the only true account of committee actions.

A proposal to set up an emergency redevelopment zone in quake-ravaged North Hills generated lukewarm reaction Tuesday from community leaders. But members of the North Hills Community Coordinating Council, who discussed the proposal with Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency Commissioner Bobbi Fiedler, said they would not rule out the option. "I don't think that the CRA is necessarily the answer," said council president Harry Coleman, who leads the non-governmental advisory panel.

The Assembly on Wednesday rejected legislation creating a new Los Angeles community redevelopment agency that would have coordinated rebuilding efforts in parts of South-Central and Koreatown devastated by last year's riots. The measure, sponsored by Assemblyman Curtis Tucker (D-Inglewood), received 42 votes but required 54, or a two-thirds majority, for passage. Tucker said he would try again for approval at a later date.

(Times Staff Writer) Irene Chang, in her article mistitled "Renewal Project Gets a Boost" (Times, Sept. 16), was at a loss to make any sense of the mess which we in Monterey Park call the "Atlantic Square Muddle." The latest flurry of activity was instigated by a number of developments, all of which make the questionable project less attractive as an investment for Monterey Park. The developments are: 1. Champion Development failed to obtain a loan to cover its part of the land acquisition and construction costs under terms originally agreed upon by a previous City Council.

A top-ranking bureaucrat at the city of Los Angeles has recommended a massive overhaul of the government's economic development efforts in which the City Council would take over the controversial and quasi-independent Community Redevelopment Agency. In a 20-page report, Chief Legislative Analyst Ron Deaton echoes what many in City Hall have said for years about the city's attempts to spur business activity and revitalize dilapidated neighborhoods: "No one is in charge."

Responding to a report that the Community Redevelopment Agency may have "grossly inflated" figures on how much housing it has provided for low-income families, Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley on Wednesday ordered a CRA review of the charges within two weeks. In a letter to CRA Administrator John Tuite, Bradley said: "While I know the agency has an excellent record in housing, apparent inattention to program accounting has brought that record into question. "This is unnecessary and unfortunate."

The City Council unanimously approved a policy Wednesday to boost the number of construction jobs available to residents who live near blighted redevelopment zones and others who have low incomes or have trouble finding work. The policy is expected to provide more than 5,000 jobs over five years in areas where the city Community Redevelopment Agency lures developers with public subsidies, zoning changes and other incentives. The construction plan will apply to projects that receive $1 million or more from the agency, as well as to those on agency-owned land or where the agency invests $500,000 or more to improve infrastructure.

Your article on the North Hollywood Redevelopment District (April 8) was very informative. The article pointed out the lack of interest by the community, so I called the Community Redevelopment Agency. I was informed that I would be able to attend the monthly advisory meetings but that under CRA rules, I am ineligible to become a member of the board because my home lies five blocks outside the boundaries of the redevelopment district. The official I spoke with also suggested I was misinterpreting the article as to the lack of community support.
