Officials hope to raise the visibility of this 2-square-mile city this year by building distinctive city markers at major entryways and by improving streets and landscaping. City Manager Daniel E. Keen said the boundary markers will be erected in 1998 to help identify La Palma to motorists who drive through and don't notice the city. In addition, major arteries such as Orangethorpe and La Palma avenues will get new medians and landscaping.

A troublesome intersection near two campuses, where traffic backs up before school, is expected to get a face lift. The Community Development Commission today is expected to approve hiring a consultant to devise a plan to upgrade the traffic signal at Walker Street and Crescent Avenue. Residents have complained that the signal and layout of the intersection jam traffic, especially mornings when students are dropped off at Kennedy High School and Walker Junior High School.

The City Council this week unanimously voted to join 22 other cities in the Orange County Taxi Administration Program, a voluntary regulatory group. The program, which goes into effect Jan. 2, tries to streamline permit applications and better monitor taxis, said project manager Sabrina Schaffer. Currently, cab drivers must get permits and vehicle inspections in each of the cities they serve. In many cases neither is done.

The City Council has unanimously approved a senior citizen transportation program that could become a pilot for serving future needs of the elderly. The program is administered by the county through the Older Americans Act at a cost of $24,000. For La Palma to participate next year, it must spend $6,000. The city could provide 1,765 round trips, five days a week for 50 weeks, for up to seven seniors at a time.

More than 800 motorists were stopped in La Palma this weekend in a crackdown on drunk driving conducted by police officers from four cities. It was the third jointly run "sobriety checkpoint" in three months. It resulted in 13 drivers being given sobriety tests, two arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and five cited for alcohol-related offenses, La Palma Sgt. Mike Sellers reported.

Concerned about the safety of pedestrians and cyclists in the Central Park area, the City Council has ordered a study of the number of people and vehicles crossing the intersection of Walker Street and Byrne Drive. The intersection is near Central Park and the Edison right-of-way, both of which draw many joggers and bicycle riders, council members said. There is no traffic signal at the intersection now, and some residents recently petitioned the city to install one.
