The City Council gave final approval Tuesday to a plan to create a billboard district next to the 10 Freeway in downtown Los Angeles. In a unanimous vote, the council allowed two billboards -- four sign faces, half of them digital -- to be erected on the north side of the freeway at San Pedro Street. The vote came hours before the council's Planning and Land Use Management Committee moved ahead with another proposed billboard district next to the 110 Freeway. That proposal, which would be used to generate money for parks and other services, is expected to take at least a year to draft before coming back for a council vote.

A City Council panel Tuesday approved a 219-unit condominium project on La Brea Avenue despite criticism from community groups who said it was too big for the surrounding neighborhood. The council's Planning and Land Use Management Committee voted to approve the seven-story project known as La Brea Gateway, which is planned for the northwest corner of La Brea and Willoughby avenues. Critics warned that the residential project would dwarf one- and two-story buildings in the surrounding neighborhood.

Re "Endorsements 2009: Essel for City Council," Editorial, Sept. 12 I have been a member of the board of the Greater Valley Glen Council for almost four years. I have been co-chair of the planning and land use management committee for almost two years. I never have heard, or seen, Christine Essel at any of the numerous meetings that I have attended in that time, until she announced her candidacy for the vacant City Council seat. That "she knows her way around the city bureaucracy" is certainly a plus for some special interests.

I wish to respond to The Times' coverage of the L.A. City Council meeting during which the council debated and then approved my Wilshire Boulevard development by a vote of 9 to 4 ("Family Ties Are Glaring as Council OKs High Rise," news analysis, Jan. 21). Beth Shuster's mean-spirited piece was, in my view, little more than biased tabloid fare. I'd like to redirect the focus back to the issues. My team and I worked diligently to understand the needs, nature and culture of this special community.

This letter is in response to a letter published April 13 titled "Frustrating Trip To City Hall." Our homeowners organization has followed the evolution of the Mulholland Specific Plan for four years and has been City Hall's most unforgiving critic. However, credit must be given where credit is due. The design and fate of the unpaved portion of Mulholland Drive was never the subject of this particular plan and its discussion would have been out of place at this public hearing of the Planning and Land Use Management Committee.

The Los Angeles City Council's planning and land use management committee voted Tuesday to scale down a controversial proposal to build a housing project for low-income seniors in Echo Park. The committee approved a 49-unit project, 14 fewer units than the Los Angeles City Planning Committee recommended last August. The developer, the nonprofit Chinese Community Service Center, originally requested permission to build an 86-unit housing project on the one-acre site.
