On June 4, the voters of Seal Beach will have a rare opportunity to decide the fate of one of the last parcels of open space left within city boundaries: the Hellman property. This particular parcel is more than just "open space." It is a historic wetlands that has been highly degraded by neglect. If we vote yes on the A-91 plan, we will continue to use up our precious open space with more housing. It sure sounds good, but once those houses are built, that open space is gone for good.

O ur readers wrote letters throughout 1988 expressing their viewpoints on a variety of issues. Here are condensed versions of some of those letters. We appreciate their taking the time to share their viewpoints and look forward to hearing from you in 1989. The message Seal Beach residents are sending their City Council is loud and clear: They don't want the housing project currently proposed by Mola Corp. Instead, they want to preserve the little open space that's left in Seal Beach.

For the first time since the controversial Hellman Ranch project became mired at City Hall last year, the Hellman family has entered the debate with an endorsement of a Mola Development Corp.-sponsored ballot measure to build 329 homes on the family's land. The Hellmans support the Mola-backed Measure A-91 and say a competing measure, the City Council-sponsored B-91, is economically unfeasible.

The message Seal Beach residents are sending their City Council is loud and clear: They don't want the housing project currently proposed by Mola Corp. Instead, they want to preserve the little open space that's left in Seal Beach. Although Seal Beach residents have waged a vigorous and unified protest against the Mola project, several city officials still seem undecided about their stance on this issue. Victor Grgas, for example, has stated his reluctance to vote against the project because he fears Mola Corp.

Mola wants the city (that's us, the residents and taxpayers) to buy a park for his development. Over and over again we hear the city is broke and we must have new assessments, such as the new lighting assessment. Joe Hunt said, regarding the Hellman property, "We couldn't dig up 1 million, much less 20." If we are so broke, where are we going to get the money to buy a 5-acre park for Mola? Perhaps the City Council will resurrect Councilman Frank Laszlo's earlier request that the City Council legalize bingo to help city agencies raise money.

City Clerk Joanne M. Yeo filed a petition Friday asking a Superior Court judge to review all ballot arguments and rebuttals for two measures to make sure none of the statements are misleading. Yeo had filed a petition Thursday asking the court to change a ballot argument against Measure B-91, an advisory, non-binding measure that would list specific recommendations on the development of the Hellman Ranch property.

After several months of searching for an archeological firm to reevaluate the importance of identified archeological sites on the Hellman Ranch property, the city this week hired KEA Environmental of San Diego. The decision will allow the city to proceed with the public comment period for the recently released environmental impact report for the Hellman property, for which development is proposed. The city Environmental Quality Control Board will meet Tuesday to hear public input.

An archeological survey of the 183-acre Hellman Ranch property has turned up what may be the ruins of a prehistoric house, which would be a rare find. But researchers caution that it might turn out to be nothing more than impressions in the earth left by a water tank. "We don't know if it's a prehistoric house, but if it turns out to be one, it's a very, very unique find," archeologist E. Gary Stickel told City Council members Monday night.
