Even on a rainy day, Joe Sinsangkeo can gaze out the window of his son's bedroom and see down the coastal bluff to the ocean. But if he shifts his gaze down to the floor of his condominium, the carpet is sopping wet and the walls bubble with watermarks. Three years ago, Sinsangkeo, 35, bought this "dream home" perched on an oceanfront bluff in the exclusive gated community of Laguna Sur Villas in Laguna Niguel.

A group of Glendale developers last week dropped plans to purchase 22 acres of Glendale Community College land, forcing officials to consider a lower bid for the property. The Tensor Group bid $2.55 million for the hilly property just south of the college in August. But the group withdrew the bid after soils engineers advised the developers that the rugged site would be too difficult to develop, said Haik Vartanian, chairman of the group.

The Glendale City Council this week endorsed the concept of issuing tax-exempt bonds to pay for streets, utilities and other public improvements in the proposed Rancho San Rafael subdivision. City Manager James Rez said he asked for the council's vote because extensive paper work and staff time would be required to prepare the bond issue. Council members unanimously approved the concept.

Idon't know what Glenmore Canyon residents are griping about (Glendale Section, April 19). So Homes by Polygon wants to build 61 houses on a hillside above their neighborhood. What's the big deal? After all, Polygon has a reputation for developing communities that show a sensitivity to the surrounding area. Just look at what the company did with its Rancho San Rafael community, shoving 550 homes into about a five-acre parcel just east of the Glendale Freeway. Sure, Polygon had to rape, pillage and scar the land, but I know I'd rather see "progress" than a bunch of hills wasted by being left in their natural state.
