Pacific Point, the largest development in the city in over a decade, won final approval from the City Council last week. The council voted 3 to 1 in favor of the 256-acre planned community. Councilman Jeff Vasquez dissented, while Councilman Gary L. Hausdorfer abstained, citing a potential conflict of interest. The project includes 350 housing units, two parks and two commercial sites spanning prominent Window Hill in the southernmost part of the city above Interstate 5.

I applaud Gary L. Hausdorfer's Commentary ("Everyone Must Help Save Environment," Nov. 11) for his insight into what must be done to save the environment. The issue of preserving the environment is a very popular one but, unfortunately, a costly one as well. People need to stick with this important movement, even when they hear the words "new taxes," because accomplishing this goal, like any other, is certainly not an easy task. As Mr. Hausdorfer wrote, our efforts to preserve the environment must come from everyone--all levels of government, big and small business and, of course, the taxpayers.

City Councilman Gil Jones says he will seek election to a second term. Jones, 62, became the first incumbent to declare his candidacy, filing nomination papers Tuesday. Jones, the owner of the Jones Family Mini Farm, said he wants to encourage businesses to locate in the city. He said some proposed projects in the past have made their way toward approval, only to be turned down by the council.

Bulldozers are clearing a downtown lot for a new video store, restaurant and coffee shop. The lot, which is part of a larger shopping center, has been unoccupied for more than five years, city planning director Tom Tomlinson said. The land is at the southeast corner of Del Obispo Street and Camino Capistrano. Tomlinson said developers plan to build about 11,000 square feet of space for a Blockbuster Video, Starbucks Coffee and Boston Rotisserie Chicken.

Council Moves to Exempt Some Events From Public Drinking Ban The City Council has given conceptual approval to a policy that would allow exemptions to a city ban on public drinking. The exemptions would apply to special events and certain uses of city property, such as weddings. A draft of the policy addressing when alcoholic drinks could be sold will now go the city's Parks, Recreation and Equestrian Trails Commission for review and comment. The council on Tuesday voted 3 to 0 to proceed.

The limit on campaign contributions from individuals to City Council candidates was increased this week from $100 to $250 after a 3-2 council vote. The council voted Tuesday night to rewrite the 19-year-old city ordinance and increase the limit for the Nov. 3 City Council election. Councilman Gary L. Hausdorfer said he proposed the new limit to update the law. Hausdorfer, who is not up for reelection, said he believes that $100 in 1973 had nearly the same value as $250 today.

It was with great shame and building anger that I read in your paper (Aug. 17) about Linda Fisher of San Juan Capistrano. Her home is an RV parked in her cousin's driveway. Fisher, 41, spends most of the day inside, hooked to an intravenous unit. She had a leg amputated at age 3, and for the last 10 years she has had cancer. Because of the close quarters, she can get to the bathroom without help and do minor things in the kitchen. The RV is not just her home--it's her world. To the couple who complained that Fisher's RV is lowering their property values--which led the city to order her and her "home" off the property by Aug. 27--I can only say that while Fisher's RV may be an eyesore in your neighborhood, your heartlessness is a sore on the soul of us all. Why not take her a magazine to read, a casserole to eat, a cat to pet or a tape to listen to?

I'm screaming mad and ashamed for our city! Mayor Kenneth E. Friess and Councilman Gary L. Hausdorfer and City Manager Stephen B. Julian have made San Juan Capistrano the laughingstock of Orange County. Shame on us all! A sordid tale of years of cozy dealings by entrenched, arrogant leaders with a "public be damned" attitude. Everybody wanted to be mayor, but nobody wanted to watch the store. But now the message to Messrs. Friess and Hausdorfer is loud and clear: Stop that ruinous San Joaquin Hills Toll Road "Y"; find the city manager a job elsewhere; get that Redevelopment Agency under control, and start listening seriously to the people.

Orange County Supervisor Gaddi H. Vasquez on Monday was named chairman of the Orange County Transportation Authority, the $600-million-a-year agency that sets transit and highway priorities countywide. Vasquez succeeds San Juan Capistrano Councilman Gary L. Hausdorfer, who was OCTA's chairman for 18 months during a period of record spending on traffic improvements under Measure M, the half-cent sales tax approved by Orange County voters in November, 1990.
