The tiny office suite, located in a strip mall across the street from Kmart, doesn't look like much. But for the 30 congregants of Shalom Alliance Fellowship, a young church of Chinese and Filipino immigrants struggling to get off the ground, it was holy ground--a place for them to worship God and fellowship together. That is until last December, when Fountain Valley closed the gathering down because it was in a commercial zone where churches are prohibited.

Officials have barely begun talks with an auto dealership that wants to buy the city maintenance yard, but neighbors are already expressing opposition to the idea. The yard sits on 8.5 acres of Ward Street property that fronts the San Diego Freeway and is zoned for commercial use, Planning Services Manager Andrew Perea said. Eager to sell the land to a business that will generate tax revenue, the city has bought another piece of property farther from the freeway to house the maintenance yard.

Establishing an adult entertainment district might be the most effective way to oversee such businesses and to minimize their effect on the community, some city leaders said this week. The City Council and Planning Commission met to review eight locations proposed for establishment of businesses such as topless nightclubs and adult bookstores and theaters.

A state-licensed family day-care operator who had been denied a city permit because her home is on a cul-de-sac has won her fight against City Hall. The Fountain Valley Planning Commission on Wednesday reversed the decision of the planning director and approved a conditional use permit for Lucy Romero, who has taken care of children in her home for seven years. City zoning prohibits day-care homes on cul-de-sacs because safety vehicles could have access problems in emergencies.

A moratorium to prevent adult entertainment establishments from opening in the city was extended last week by the City Council until next February. The council unanimously approved a 45-day urgency ordinance Feb. 15 to ban adult entertainment and related uses--a result of an inquiry to open a nude dance cabaret club in the city. But the moratorium will expire April 1, so the council extended the ban for an additional 10 months and 15 days, or a total of one year.

The City Council agreed on Tuesday to extend a 45-day moratorium on the antennas imposed in February. Planning services manager Andrew Perea will report back to the council in two months with an interim policy that would allow applications to be processed.

The City Council agreed Tuesday to allow a homeowner to continue a second-story expansion of her home despite her neighbors' protests. A neighbor had appealed a Planning Commission vote to the City Council that allowed Katina Frudakis to add a second story to her home at 9177 McBride River. After that complaint was filed, two other neighbors joined in asking the City Council to deny the application.
