A week after the Los Angeles City Council rejected plans to build a golf course in the Big Tujunga Wash, the developer Thursday filed a $215-million claim against the city, charging that the project was illegally rejected. The claim, which sets the stage for a lawsuit, accuses the council of opposing the project because of pressure from an influential labor union--the Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees Union, Local 11--instead of basing its decision on the merits of the project.

The Los Angeles City Council was on sound legal ground when it voted last month to reject plans for an 18-hole golf course on the banks of the Big Tujunga Wash, the state's legislative counsel said in a report released Friday. The analysis by Legislative Counsel Bion M. Gregory comes in the wake of a $215-million claim by Foothill Golf Development Group, which charges that the city illegally rejected the project.

When Los Angeles lobbyists talk about the Top 10 list, they are not referring to David Letterman's nightly inventory of wacky one-liners. In City Hall, the Top 10 list is issued quarterly by the city's Ethics Commission, showing the 10 organizations that spent the most on lobbying in City Hall. In the most recent list, for April through June, the San Fernando Valley is well-represented.

The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy is offering $3.5 million to buy and preserve 352 acres of environmentally sensitive land along the banks of the Big Tujunga Wash where a developer wants to build an 18-hole golf course. But a spokesman for the developer dismissed the offer Tuesday as too low, saying it would not even cover what has been spent on designing and planning the project.

From a distance, the Big Tujunga Wash looks like an untouched wildlife preserve set against the majestic San Gabriel Mountains. But up close, the vast landscape is strewn with trash, tires, rusting appliances and twisted scrap metal.

The Los Angeles City Council took the proper course last week when it postponed a vote on whether to allow a golf course in the Big Tujunga Wash. But that was just the first--and perhaps easiest--step in an effort to preserve the ecologically sensitive wash. The two-week delay is meant to allow the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy to make a purchase offer for 350 acres on which Foothill Golf Development Group intends to build a public course and wildflower preserve.

A developer who was denied a permit by the Los Angeles City Council to build a golf course near the Big Tujunga Wash is expected to file suit today, claiming the city has illegally denied it the right to develop the land. The lawsuit will probably rely on the legal argument that the city cannot deny a property owner "all economically beneficial uses" of the land, according to sources.
