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.

The 30-year battle over development near the Bolsa Chica wetlands heated up again Thursday when the California Coastal Commission's staff said it will recommend slashing by more than half the amount of land that can be used to build homes. In a report scheduled to be released later this month, the commission's staff will strongly advise that development be limited to 1,235 homes on 65 acres rather than the 183-acre limit set earlier, said Steve Rynas, Orange County area supervisor for the staff.

Environmentalists are calling the state Coastal Commission's unanimous approval of a scaled-down development at Bolsa Chica marsh a victory of grass-roots activism over politics. "It was like a Frank Capra movie, 'Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,' " said Marinka Horack of Huntington Beach, a Bolsa Chica Land Trust member. The land trust would like to buy the acreage and preserve it.
