The latest proposal to develop a liquefied natural gas terminal off the coast of Ventura County begins a crucial process today as regulators hear from the public about which issues to consider during an upcoming environmental review. The $600-million Clearwater Port terminal, proposed by Houston-based NorthernStar Natural Gas Inc., would convert an oil platform about 11 miles offshore from Oxnard to receive and process up to 1.

A federal appeals court Thursday upheld a 1996 federal environmental review approving construction of a larger terminal at Burbank Airport, which the project's supporters said moves it closer to reality while critics said the fight is far from over. If there are no further appeals, the ruling by the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals clears away the last significant legal challenge to the Federal Aviation Administration study.

County supervisors refused Tuesday to pay any more than $100,000 this year to an engineering company hired by an environmental law firm that is advising the county on contamination issues at El Toro Marine Corps Air Station. The subcontract calls for GeoSyntech Inc. of Irvine to review Navy documents detailing soil and water contamination at the base, which the Marines plan to turn over to the county by July 1999. The county wants to build a commercial airport at El Toro.

A San Diego judge ruled Friday that Orange County taxpayers must pay $410,756 in attorney fees to El Toro airport opponents who successfully challenged the adequacy of the county's environmental impact report for the project. Superior Court Judge Judith McConnell said the opponents were entitled to have their legal fees paid by the county because she ruled in their favor on several key issues.

A federal environmental report analyzing the effects of a proposed 500-megawatt hydroelectric plant near Lake Elsinore gave local officials insufficient information, the Board of Supervisors declared by vote Tuesday. The board urged the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, which prepared the document, to further investigate the 2,400-acre project's effect on transportation, water quality, views and recreation, including hang gliding in the Santa Ana Mountains.

Although Orange County officials said they were surprised to learn recently that they might be saddled with legal liability over environmental hazards at the former El Toro base, internal county memos show that such concerns had been raised nearly three years ago by county staff. County supervisors said last week that they were upset that their staff had never conducted an environmental assessment of the property, which some want as the site of an international airport.

San Juan Capistrano's City Council, which hopes to sell 13 acres of land for a home-improvement warehouse store, voted unanimously Tuesday to study the likely environmental impact of such a project before proceeding. The proposal to sell the city-owned land west of Camino Capistrano and north of Stonehill Drive has drawn objections from residents who say such a business would bring noise and air pollution and cause excessive light to shine in their homes.

Orange County's lengthy environmental review of a proposed El Toro airport drew hundreds of responses, including many demanding answers to questions about impacts on safety, traffic, pollution and noise. One of the most critical responses came from the El Toro Reuse Planning Authority, a coalition of eight South County cities opposed to an airport at El Toro.

A voluminous draft environmental impact report was released Thursday on a controversial expansion project proposed by the Self-Realization Fellowship for its church headquarters in Mt. Washington, a hilly enclave several miles northeast of downtown. The $40-million proposal has evoked strong passions among proponents, who contend that the church's plan would not negatively affect the almost rural nature of Mt. Washington, and opponents, who contend that the plan's magnitude would destroy it.
