The Los Angeles City Council voted Tuesday to delay for one year approval of a nearly completed dumping site for septic tank waste in the Sepulveda Basin so that city officials can complete an environmental study of the project. The environmental review had been requested by environmentalists and neighbors who fear that the septic tank dumping site at the Donald C. Tillman Water Treatment Plant may create excessive truck traffic and contaminate adjacent parkland.

Cal State Northridge's proposed University MarketCenter is nothing more than another Valley strip mall masquerading as support for CSUN's educational mission and program. The environmental impact report states that the proposed development would create "350 jobs, many for students." So what are grad students supposed to learn from the development's minimum-wage jobs? To attend more college? Or maybe the development could be a work-study program on what not to do with your life. CSUN officials should return to their mission of educating students with the highest achievable standards.

Re "Stop Poisoning Schools," May 10. Your editorial and the news story that preceded it warning of the effect of farming operations on teachers and students is particularly timely as the Oxnard Elementary School District is on the verge of approving construction of a new campus in the middle of farmland. District staff are pressing to put a new school in southeast Oxnard, which would be within 1,000 feet of farmland despite the fact that your article provided numerous examples of health-related problems when schools are put within 7,920 feet (1 1/2 miles)

The Ventura River is slowly moving to the east and could flood a sewage treatment plant, along with $30 million in planned improvements, during a heavy storm, an environmental document states. But because the potential for flooding at the Ojai Valley Sanitary District is already present and flood-control embankments are in place, there is no reason not to upgrade the plant, the report concludes.

Much has been written recently in your paper regarding the proposed destination resort at Long Point. To the board of directors of the Palos Verdes Peninsula Chamber of Commerce, the hotel development seems overwhelmingly beneficial to the Peninsula. Take, for instance, the recreation value alone. The project would offer a golf course, tennis club and health spa, each with public access. Presently, the Palos Verdes Peninsula has no major hotel, and through the proposed project, the residents of the peninsula will benefit by having a 495-room destination resort hotel at Long Point with conference center, restaurants, and a ballroom for charity and grad nights and weddings and receptions.

The article, "Burton Strikes at Soka Expansion," (March 13) makes me realize that this is a battle between those who would preserve the California coast in the spirit of Proposition 20 and the people who would develop at all costs. This battle has on one side the four Gov. Pete Wilson appointees plus the Coastal Commission staff, who are obviously under extreme pressure from the Wilson organization and the lobbying largess of Soka. On the other side are the people who want to preserve the integrity of the coastal land-use plan.

The Walt Disney Co. has expressed its objections to a hotel project near Disneyland, leading the project's representative to charge that the entertainment giant is trying to wipe out smaller competitors. Disney has sent a 16-page response to the city Planning Commission regarding plans by Tarsadia Inc., a Costa Mesa-based development firm, to build three hotels with a total of up to 834 rooms across Harbor Boulevard from Disneyland.

Dear Traffic Talk: I am calling about the horrible traffic jam every night when the Hollywood Bowl is open. It is just impossible to get from Burbank or anywhere in the San Fernando Valley to Hollywood without an extremely long delay exiting the Hollywood Freeway. The situation is especially horrible at Highland Avenue. Why can't the city build an onramp specifically for the Hollywood Bowl that would bypass Highland altogether?

More than 20 years ago the Occidental Petroleum Corp. first proposed to drill for oil at the base of the Pacific Palisades cliffs. Since then many questions have emerged about the plan to drill 60 wells at the 1.5-acre site near Will Rogers State Beach, but the main issue remains: Will the drilling project encourage further landslides along the crumbling bluffs?

The North Valley Coalition has been opposed to the destruction of the Sunshine Forest ecosystem for many years. Turning this oak forest into a dump will represent the largest removal of land from a designated significant ecological area (SEA) in county history. This is not a 200-acre deletion, as Don P. Mullally states (Valley Commentary, Jan. 9), but a 542-acre deletion that has already been approved. These SEAs were identified to be protected and remain as relics of what once was found throughout the region.
