The plan calls for using 100 acres in Lake View Terrace to build sports fields, an indoor soccer arena, roller hockey rink, bike motocross course, skateboard park, model airplane airport and a recreational vehicle campground.

The Children's Museum of Los Angeles unveiled preliminary plans Friday for its two new museums, one at the Hansen Dam Recreation Area in the northeast San Fernando Valley, the other downtown.

Schlossberg and his New York-based firm have designed exhibits for dozens of cultural institutions, including several children's museums and the Immigration History Center at Ellis Island.

No sooner had major league baseball and the Dodgers announced Tuesday a first-of-its-kind, $10-million sports academy for at-risk youth than Lake View Terrace neighbors of the project's site in the Hansen Dam Recreation Area raised objections. Some area residents are not sold on the multimillion-dollar Youth Baseball Academy, questioning how at-risk youth in Los Angeles will be identified and selected to attend the facility and fearing the criteria will be exclusionary.

In a stunning reversal, the Los Angeles City Council voted Tuesday to approve a golf course development in the Big Tujunga Wash, one of the city's last remaining wilderness areas and the last place in the city where a major river runs freely. The action caps a decade-long fight that pitted government, private environmentalists and labor unionists against a mammoth Japanese development firm with interests in the project.

Every weekday morning, Phyllis Hines takes an hourlong walk in her scenic neighborhood, past crowing roosters, grazing horses and wild vegetation. This working-class community of about 20,000 residents--better known for the 1991 Rodney King beating than its world-class equestrian center--is quietly undergoing an image transformation that has longtime residents like Hines thrilled.

Final funding for a long-awaited library has been approved and construction may begin by December, but some residents are divided over the building's revamped design. "If it won't be pleasing to the community, we would just rather have [the process] slowed two months," said Phyllis Hines, land-use chairwoman of the Lake View Terrace Improvement Assn. "We'll take the longer term and get what we like." For more than a decade, residents in this community have lobbied city officials for a library.

Two years after the Los Angeles City Council took the first step to create a redevelopment area encompassing 6,835 acres of the northeast San Fernando Valley, the proposal has bogged down, sharply dividing a citizens panel. The plan for the city's largest redevelopment area is more than a year behind schedule, and the group of local residents and merchants the council formed to offer advice appears deadlocked over whether the plan should go forward.

About 50 neighbors of the vacant Lake View Terrace Medical Center staged a protest Sunday against a proposal to turn the site into a drug rehabilitation center for about 150 adolescents. Lake View Terrace neighbors used similar tactics to defeat a proposal three years ago by the nonprofit Phoenix House Foundation to operate a drug rehabilitation facility to be named after Nancy Reagan. But the plans were defeated when the former first lady withdrew her support amid protests by neighbors.
