The Huntington Beach City School District is seeking 25 volunteers to serve on a committee to work with architects and officials on the design of a new elementary school. The proposed school, which would be built at Garfield Avenue and Saddleback Lane, would be the first new school to be built in the area in about 20 years, district officials said. The committee is expected to be active for about four months.

To the Sowers Middle School art students who finished painting a temporary wall around a construction site here Monday, the frequent compliments from passersby had them high on pride.

Bounded by the ocean on one side and thickly settled cities on the other, this 80-year-old beach town would appear to have been built out long ago. But appearances are deceiving. The city, the third-largest in the county, expects to add about 35,000 residents over the next 20 years--as many as the entire population of Brea. "The city currently has a population of about 189,000," said Hal Simmons, senior planner for the city.

In the wake of an abrupt move rescinding a property fee to fund school maintenance, representatives of four school districts are now faced with hammering out an agreement with business leaders who have promised to help district officials cope with funding woes. Although trustees from the districts said they based their decision to rescind the fee largely on the local Board of Realtors' commitment of partnership, neither school officials nor the realtors have sketched a plan for that endeavor.
