Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky is to be commended for criticizing the delays in adopting restrictions on future development along Ventura Boulevard. Over the past four years homeowners and developers have worked with city planning staff to propose reasonable limits on density, additional parking and transportation requirements and measures to protect residential areas from commercial encroachment. Whatever justification for the delays, the fact is that Ventura Boulevard landowners and developers are quickly getting projects through the door so that they do not have to meet the new requirements.

Re "Net losses?," editorial, Aug. 10 Once again the Federal Communications Commission has got it wrong. Its regulatory leniency has not only threatened the freedom of content for Internet users, but has all but taken away the competition that spurs innovation essential to broadband development. Instead of unbundling the "local loop" and discounting line rentals, which it should, it has taken a step in all but crushing competition. The only way out of this is for the Bush administration to further develop broadband over power lines with the the money it pledged for research and development.

Can we remind the fickle, naive and fair-weather Dodger fan that the major leagues are not the place to "develop" players. Talent develops in the streets, schoolyards, sandlots and other fields of dreams. You do not teach or learn baseball in the big leagues. Check out rookies DiMaggio, Williams, Musial, Ruth, etc. JOHNNY MAGNUS Hollywood

In your editorial of last Sunday (Aug. 2) about the coastal land between Corona del Mar and Laguna Beach you seemed to approve the latest plan for its development. I disagree. That land should not be touched, except to be made into a national urban park. This almost took place at the end of the Carter Administration in 1979, but the following Administration dismissed it. What we need in place of more hotels and houses in Orange County is a place where the public can enjoy nature and unwind from a very stressful environment.

Re "Pete: A Canyon's Best Friend," Sept. 19: Please do not think that everyone in Silverado Canyon is anti-development. My husband and I support sensible development in Silverado Canyon. The benefits, including increased real estate values and a boost in restaurant and market revenues, outweigh the bad. As for potential traffic problems on Silverado Canyon Road, there are traffic and parking problems associated with existing homes used as "boarding houses" in Silverado Canyon.

The Woodland Hills Homeowners Organization should be elated that there is a desire to rezone and develop a 24-acre parcel of Warner Center property with up to 3.7 million square feet of office space. This will put additional jobs in the community, allowing more local residents to find jobs so close to home that they can walk, bicycle or ride the (future) shuttle to work and thereby reduce traffic and parking problems.

Development of the Ponderosa Corridor has been put on hold at least temporarily. The corridor is the unincorporated county property on the north side of the Ventura Freeway between Central Avenue and Las Posas Road. When Cal State Channel Islands was considering locating west of the area in 1994, a plan was developed that would have made the Ponderosa Corridor the housing and commercial focus point for the university.

I just finished reading "L.A.'s Urban Model" (Oct. 18), describing the Playa Vista high-density housing project under construction. There is only one brief mention of "area residents worried about traffic gridlock." Ironically, it mentions a radio ad for the development in which a husband is "stuck in a traffic jam on the 405 Freeway." I live in Playa del Rey and commute to work in Santa Monica, a distance of six miles. It takes me 25 minutes to get to work in the morning using surface streets and 30 minutes or longer to get home at night.
