The playground at Berendo Middle School, just west of downtown Los Angeles, looks more like the surface of an aircraft carrier than a playground. There's virtually nothing but blacktop for the roughly 1,300 students to play on - acres and acres of sun-baked tar that heats up in summer and gets slippery when it rains. And that's why there's so much enthusiasm for a beautification plan that aims to transform a corner of the campus into an oasis that would be enjoyed not just by students, but the whole community.

Rocky Delgadillo is facing opposition from Los Angeles beautification advocates for having pushed a lawsuit settlement that could allow hundreds of new and existing illegal billboards to get permits.

Community leaders said the proposal helps advance plans to upgrade the quality of the village, which in recent years has experienced a proliferation of fast-food restaurants and novelty stores that appeal to a transient population of teen-agers and students.
