For as long as man has been around, he has been drawn to live near the water. And if the Malibu beachfront is out of reach, a man-made lake in Calabasas may be the next best thing -- especially one wrapped in a neighborhood that defies the stereotype of a tract-home development. What it's about At the heart of Calabasas Park is the lake. It's a nameless affair -- commonly called Lake Calabasas -- and only residents who pay dues to the Calabasas Park Homeowners Assn. have permission to use it.

Renovations are nearly complete at Lake Calabasas, a private lake in the city of Calabasas, according to Myra Turek, corresponding secretary of Calabasas Park Homeowners Assn. "We are 99% done," she said last week. "I think it's wonderful. People are thrilled when they see how good it looks." The renovations to the 21-acre lake included shoring up retaining walls, she said. "The lake is approximately 25 years old, and after 25 years there is some erosion," Turek said.

The sign on the hay wagon at the main entrance into town reads "Welcome to Calabasas, Last of the Old West." A little exaggerated perhaps, but Calabasas residents revel in their town's Western heritage--both real and celluloid. A once-rowdy stage stop along El Camino Real and a favorite Hollywood staging area, the town has been home to well-known horse lovers, such as the Lone Ranger (Clayton Moore).

Wild geese may live a carefree existence in the sheltered environs of Lake Calabasas, but their presence is no picnic for area residents, who say the birds have begun to overpopulate and create a nuisance. The situation has fueled controversy between animal-rights activists who want to protect the geese and area residents who fear that they are ruining their lake. "There is a lot of emotion tied to this," said Bruce Richards, director of the Agoura Animal Shelter.

Less than five months after it was purchased by the city, the Calabasas Tennis and Swim Center will open the town's first public pool today. The opening of the cleaned and repaired eight-lane pool marks the latest improvement at the formerly private center overlooking Lake Calabasas. The city opened the center's 14 tennis courts soon after purchasing the neglected, 8.3-acre facility in mid-January, and plans to open a snack bar near the pool by June 20.

The Las Virgenes Municipal Water District has agreed to pay $40,570 to a landscape maintenance district in Calabasas to replace irrigation equipment ruined by reclaimed water. The water sold to the maintenance district contained sand, gravel and other debris, which built up inside valves, rendering them useless, according to an official from District 22. The landscape district maintains Lake Calabasas, road medians, parkways, trees and various creeks and slopes within the city's boundaries.

The city of Calabasas has hired a full-time staff person to oversee the maintenance of four special districts in the city.

He said Monday that he is looking forward to his first day of work next Monday.
