It is one choice chunk of real estate--on the water, on the Westside, close to freeways and the airport. Marina del Rey--anchored by the world's largest man-made small-craft harbor--is owned by the public and managed by Los Angeles County. The marina was conceived in the late 1950s as a money-making partnership between government and business.

The last surviving original developer of Marina del Rey will start work Monday on a $165-million apartment complex there that will replace one he built in the 1960s. The project is part of a push by Los Angeles County officials to spruce up the aging publicly owned marina, the largest pleasure boat harbor community in the United States. Leaseholders of land there have been urged to upgrade their restaurants, shopping centers, hotels and apartments in the hope of creating a more dynamic community.

After languishing for years, plans for a new $175-million Los Angeles state building were given a big boost Wednesday when state and city officials targeted October, 1986, to start work on the massive structure to be built on downtown's once-thriving Spring Street.

Jerry Epstein's Jan. 17 commentary gave an outdated account of U.S. aviation security. In the past two years, the Federal Aviation Administration has made real progress in enhancing security. An important advance has been the FAA's work with the airlines on a massive deployment of sophisticated security equipment. Congress appropriated $197 million in 1997 for the FAA's purchases of innovative equipment to protect air travelers. By the end of 1998, we had bought 327 trace explosives detection devices and 96 bulk explosives detection systems for U.S. airports.
OPINION

As the chair of the Assembly Select Committee on California Ports, I read Jerry Epstein's article slamming the Southern Pacific railway ("A Robbery From Downtown to the Sea," Commentary, April 28) with mixed feelings. In his article, Epstein acknowledged that the corridor is "perhaps the most important unfunded infrastructure project in Southern California." On April 8, when he testified on the project, he said straight out that "the Alameda Corridor is critical, not just to the local and regional economy, but to the state as a whole."
OPINION

Kudos to Marina del Rey lessee and would-be film critic, Jerry Epstein, for never mixing his metaphors ("Playing Playa Vista as Farce," Commentary, Aug. 16), but his review leaves me wondering if he saw the same production I did. For almost 19 years, the organization I head, Friends of Ballona Wetlands, has been the primary advocate for the wetlands, an integral part of the property known as Playa Vista. The previous developer, the Summa Corp., proposed an intensely destructive plan that would have destroyed a vital portion of wetland, replacing it with 10- to 20-story commercial buildings, housing and a golf course.
