City leaders will trek to Washington next week to lobby federal officials for almost $1 million to study how the city's infrastructure would fare in an earthquake. Federal legislation adopted in 1990 as part of a water bill gave authorization to pay for studies on Southern California cities' needs for earthquake retrofitting to water-related infrastructure, such as sewer, storm drain and water systems. The city will seek $900,000 to evaluate the infrastructure and plan improvements.

The city will pursue deed restrictions to require native plant landscaping at the proposed Orange County Bolsa Chica Regional Park. The action is being taken because of the discovery of an oversight that omitted the conditions when the deed was transferred to the county. The City Council this week agreed to have its legal department pursue the deed restrictions. The city deeded the property to the county to develop the 106-acre park, which will be county-owned and maintained.
