City Councilman Greig Smith introduced a proposal Wednesday to block the proposed 5,500-home Las Lomas project just north of Sylmar from receiving further review by the city. Smith and six other council members signed a motion that would allow the council to instruct city departments to "cease and desist all work" associated with processing Las Lomas Land Co.'s development application. "I'm very confident that we have the support to finally kill this project," said Smith's chief of staff, Mitch Englander.

A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge has declined to order the city to reopen its environmental review of a controversial 5,553-home development proposed for steep hillsides near where the 5 and the 14 freeways intersect. Judge David P. Yaffe ruled Friday that state law doesn't require the City Council to finish preparing environmental studies before considering the proposal by developer Dan Palmer to build a mixed-use community known as Las Lomas.

Concerned about the effects of a proposed subdivision on its southern border, the Santa Clarita City Council is expected to launch an effort Tuesday to annex 555 acres where a developer hopes to build 5,800 homes. Developer Las Lomas Land Co. plans a subdivision with an expected population of 15,000 people on the rugged, hilly property that many Santa Clarita residents value for the psychological distance it gives them from the rest of the Los Angeles area.

A developer who spent years trying to build a 5,553-home development on the jagged ridgelines at the intersection of Interstate 5 and the Antelope Valley Freeway sued the city of Los Angeles on Monday, saying that a decision earlier this year by the City Council to halt its review of the project was illegal. In a 25-page complaint filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Las Lomas Land Co. argues that the council violated state law and the developer's constitutional right to due process when it voted 10 to 5 in March to instruct the Planning Department to stop processing the application to build the project.

A divided Los Angeles City Council voted Wednesday to halt its review of the 5,553-home Las Lomas project, dealing what could well be a fatal blow to the mega-development planned for north Los Angeles County. "This project would have put 15,000 cars a day in an already heavily impacted area," said City Councilman Greig Smith, who represents the northwest San Fernando Valley. "The people of L.A. said we can't take that anymore. We're tired of it."

Escalating their fight against the proposed 5,553-home development known as Las Lomas, Los Angeles City Councilman Greig Smith and Assemblyman Cameron Smyth (R-Santa Clarita) called Thursday for two law enforcement agencies to determine whether a real estate developer perjured himself in public documents submitted on behalf of the project.

Plans for a large master-planned community in northern Los Angeles County were unveiled Friday by a builder who hopes to provide housing for 15,000 people in a transit-friendly setting. The proposed Las Lomas development in mostly hilly terrain north of the interchange of the Golden State and Antelope Valley freeways would include 5,800 housing units, 2.3 million square feet of office, and research and development facilities, along with retail and government buildings.

A court ruling Tuesday dealt a setback to Santa Clarita's fight against a 5,800-home development near the city's southern border that could become one of the next major battlegrounds over suburban growth in north Los Angeles County. Set in a largely undeveloped swath of mountains between the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys, the Las Lomas project is envisioned as a self-contained community of 15,000 people, retail stores and more than 2 million square feet of office space.

Former Los Angeles City Councilman Richard Alatorre is enjoying a second coming at City Hall. Six years after he left the public stage -- his reputation in tatters after admitting that he took cash from people trying to influence him -- he has returned as an advocate for companies seeking city business. The gravel-voiced 64-year-old, a pioneering Mexican American politician known as one of the architects of Latino empowerment in California, is trading on his status as an elder statesman.

Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Steve Cooley has opened an inquiry into the lobbying work of former Los Angeles City Councilman Richard Alatorre and whether he violated city laws by failing to disclose those activities, several sources said. Cooley's Public Integrity Division, joined by investigators with the Los Angeles City Ethics Commission, also have been seeking information about any lobbying work by former city commissioner Leland Wong, who was sentenced last month to five years in prison.
