I would like to speak to the informed readers of The Times about the issue of re-establishing our city's Planning Commission. This matter has been placed on the ballot so the people of our city would have the opportunity of deciding to go forward and have a Planning Commission, as do 99% of the cities of California. All of our citizen commissions except the Planning Commission have been re-established over the years. They were abolished in late 1978 after Proposition 13 was passed in June of 1978.

When reapportionment touched off a scramble among Orange County's state Assembly members early this year, incumbent Doris Allen (R-Cypress) was expected to run for the newly drawn 68th district since it contained many of her current constituents. But at the last minute, Allen surprised her party leaders and chose, instead, to compete against two of her Assembly colleagues for a new seat on the coast.

The City Council elected Cecilia L. Age as mayor Monday night by a 4-1 vote. Councilwoman Gail H. Kerry, who cast the dissenting vote, said Age's selection was a decision by the council's "majority of three" referring to Age and members Margaret M. Arnold and Councilman Walter Bowman. "I feel the choice is disappointing but to be expected, with a 2-to-3 block vote," Kerry said. Age, referring to rifts among council members, stressed unity during the coming year.

Former City Councilman John Kanel will have a street named after him in honor of his longtime service to the community. The City Council voted to rename the 5500 block of Mildred Circle as Kanel Circle. Kanel, who is 67 and lives on the street, served on the council from January 1964 to March 1976 and from November 1982 to November 1990. He also was mayor three times: in 1970-71, 1984-85 and 1986-87. "It's an honor, of course," said Kanel, who is semi-retired. "It's nice the council did it."

After months of debating whether to revive the city's now-defunct Planning Commission, City Council members decided last week not to decide the issue at all. Instead, they will put it on the November ballot and let residents determine the panel's fate. The council's long debate has turned on uncertainty about its own makeup after November.

The City Council refused to consider overturning a law this week that limits council members to eight years in office, despite warnings from city officials that the law is unconstitutional. In 1977, an amendment was added to the City Charter barring people from serving more than eight years on the council. City Atty. Jerry M. Patterson said that the language in the amendment is flawed because it implies a lifetime ban, which is constitutionally unsound.

The City Council has ordered a review of city development guidelines, taking the first steps since last month's special election toward finding a use for property surrounding Los Alamitos Race Course. In that election, voters rejected on Feb. 14 a proposal for a business park called Cypress Downs for the site. Updating the guidelines "will give us more direction and more response to some of the community issues that have been raised in the recent election," City Manager Darrell L.

City Councilman Richard Partin, who was targeted for defeat by a group of golfers upset over his support of a development project that will mean closing a 100-acre golf course, was ousted in Tuesday's election. But Councilman John Kanel, who voted against the project, was reelected to a fifth four-year term. Two newcomers, William Davis, 47, a businessman and second-time council candidate, and Margaret M. Arnold, 47, a personnel consultant, won the other two open council seats.
