A proposal designed to keep the city free from social ills brought by sex-oriented businesses includes a ban on nudity that could result in censorship of mainstream theater, arts administrators said Friday. "I am incensed by such an ordinance," said Stephen Barker, chairman of the UC Irvine drama department. Although UCI rarely stages performances with nudity, banning nudity would restrict artistic exploration of legitimate social themes, Barker said.

In the bright, airy conference room at the Irvine Civic Center, the atmosphere was anything but tense as businessmen and city officials recently negotiated the details of this city's ballyhooed ban on chemicals that damage the Earth's ozone layer. And for good reason. Business leaders who were initially outraged by last year's City Council vote to outlaw emissions of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) and other ozone-depleting chemicals by July 1 now find they have little to fear.

Three months after a last-minute deal saved the unfinished, castle-like home of Haym and Fern Ganish from demolition, city officials say safety code violations inside the stone-covered structure have been corrected and the family can move back into its house.

After months of bouncing back and forth between the Planning and Transportation and Infrastructure commissions, the city's parking code will be back on the City Council's agenda today. Council members said the code has been the source of questions from many residents who are frustrated over parking spaces that are too small for their vehicles. Also at the meeting, the council is expected to consider a proposal to increase city funding to the El Toro Reuse Planning Authority by $203,000.

The city has turned over campaign finance statements to the Orange County district attorney's office as part of an examination of campaign rule violations by the Irvine Conservancy. The city attorney had been reviewing documentation of contributions to the environmental group by former Irvine Mayor Larry Agran, UC Irvine professor Mark Petracca and three other people. The donations violated a city law that limits contributions to $190 from any individual for each reporting period.

The City Council tonight will review a proposal to revise the city's ordinance governing political campaigns. The new plan is intended to close loopholes in existing regulations. The proposed ordinance, more than a year in the making, would raise limits on campaign contributions, prohibit multiple campaign committees and create new regulations in areas ranging from the transfer of campaign funds to campaign loans.
