The last time bulldozers rumbled through Huntington Beach's Talbert Marsh, it was to block the tides that made it a productive wetland. Now, the bulldozers are back--this time to give the parched land another chance at life. Since ocean access was cut off in the 1950s to the former salt marsh at the city's southern tip, it has become a dusty vacant lot, home to little more than parked cars, stagnant runoff water and windblown trash.

In response to pleas from a newly formed youth sports coalition, Councilman Ralph Bauer has pledged to seek a way to enable sports use of a legally tied-up part of Central Park. Bauer said an undeveloped portion of the park near Ellis and Golden West streets would be ideal for a long-proposed Youth Sports Complex. But that park land has been dedicated by the city until the year 2008 for possible relocation of mobile homes displaced by downtown renewal. City Atty.

The controversy over plans for the Pierside Village development, which call for building more restaurants on the beach side of Pacific Coast Highway, is now headed for trial in Orange County Superior Court. A court commissioner Friday declined to hear the city's request to dismiss a suit in which the State Lands Commission argues against giving full title to the land involved to the city.

Against the bleak backdrop of a shoreline stained with crude oil, city leaders on Saturday proceeded anyway with plans to delight beach lovers. City Council members, city employees and a cross-section of civic leaders met at the Huntington Beach Art Center throughout most of the day to discuss plans for a new pier fronted by an artistic plaza. Before going into their meeting, the city leaders walked around the pier area to survey the ruin.

The City Council has decided not to seek a bond issue in the Nov. 6 election but instead to have a referendum on what voters want built in Central Park. The council dropped the bond issue option this week after failing to agree on financing major projects proposed for the park, including a youth sports complex. Councilman John Erskine had pushed for getting a bond issue on the Nov. 6 ballot.

Some advertisements enticing young people to pop open a beer or light a cigarette would be outlawed in this city under a proposed ordinance. City Councilwoman Grace Winchell, who proposed the idea, said liquor and tobacco ads on public property suggest to young people that the city endorses those products. Adopting a law against such advertisements on city property would be largely symbolic. As a policy, the city already does prohibit them, officials said.

City law is clear: People in Huntington Beach must be given the right to vote on construction proposed on beach or park land. That right came to the general public when voters overwhelmingly passed an initiative, called Measure C, in 1990. What remains unclear, however, is at what stage a project must be placed on the ballot for voter approval. Is it when the project is first planned?

The City Council has unanimously approved a county plan to halt erosion around bridge abutments at the new Talbert Channel at Huntington State Beach. The erosion could threaten a parking lot next to the bridge. The new outlet to the sea was carved into the beach last year. It connects the newly restored Huntington Beach Wetlands at Brookhurst Street and Pacific Coast Highway with the Pacific Ocean, allowing ocean water to flush the wetlands.

Most residents believe that the city has recovered from the oil spill that happened one year ago today, but the memory of the disaster lives on in the form of a new wave of environmental awareness, according to a new survey. The Times Orange County Poll also found that a majority of residents favor removing the offshore oil unloading terminal where the tanker American Trader spilled 397,000 gallons of oil last year.

The Huntington Beach-Fountain Valley Board of Realtors has reaffirmed its support of the controversial Pierside Village project in the Huntington Beach downtown area. The plan proposes redeveloping a paved area of the beach between Main and Lake streets, and building three or four new restaurants and a plaza of small shops. Two citizens' groups, Huntington Beach Tomorrow and Save Our Parks, vehemently oppose the project, charging that it would be a misuse of a public beach.
