Delivering what could be a blow to Gov. Gray Davis' plan to accelerate power plant projects, Huntington Beach officials filed a formal appeal with state regulators to halt the speedy reactivation of two old, gas-fired generators and promised to go to court if that doesn't work. A pair of boilers owned by giant AES Corp. are among a variety of power generators the California Energy Commission is trying to fast-track into service on orders from the governor.

In the decades-long battle over whether to develop the Bolsa Chica mesa, the Huntington Beach City Council debated Monday whether to seek state funds to buy the scenic bluff-top property. The proposal won praise from environmentalists, who have fought for years to preserve Bolsa Chica, a coastal stretch between Huntington Beach and Seal Beach that includes the largest wetlands complex in Southern California.

In a move that may further delay a controversial proposal to build 1,234 homes on the Bolsa Chica mesa, the City Council this week decided to stop processing further permit requests from the developer. The council's decision follows a recent Superior Court ruling that will delay the Koll Real Estate Group project for at least a year.

A developer tearing down the aging Seacliff Shopping Center will assume much of the costs tied to relocating the complex's popular artwork. Shea Properties will pay $210,000 of the estimated $250,000 to move the painted tiles of birds to other locations when the existing center is demolished in the fall, said City Councilwoman Shirley S. Dettloff, who is leading the campaign to preserve the artwork. She said more money is still needed.

The Planning Commission recently delayed a decision on redevelopment plans for the Seacliff Shopping Center, after listening to public concerns for nearly 2 1/2 hours. The commission was to have decided on plans by Shea Properties to demolish the mall, at Main Street and Yorktown Avenue, and build a larger, more modern structure that would double the existing retail space.

It is an unlovely parcel of land, only seven-tenths of an acre of salty water and weeds. But the big man with the big blue sign says saving it--from bulldozers, from townhomes, from cigarette butts--is the reason he was put on Earth. Joe Racano means it. For 10 days now, he has parked his RV across the street from the site and stood there, holding a sign that reads, "Save This Wetland."

While they still lack a permanent resting place, the birds that have graced the SeaCliff Village shopping center in sculpture and mosaic for 22 years will not be destroyed to make way for a new development. Officials with Shea Properties, the Walnut-based developer that plans to replace the aging Main Street strip mall with a commercial and residential complex, said they would foot the bill for preserving the avian artwork.
