Parks, libraries, museums--these are the amenities that make a city livable. With a measure of nature here, knowledge there, they leaven our day-to-day lives. On the simplest level, they give residents something to do on a weekend afternoon. But more than that, by providing a place for people to play, to learn and to share a common experience, they foster community.

A proposal to build the Los Angeles Children's Museum at Hansen Dam became clouded Tuesday after several area homeowners spoke against the plan and some City Council members said the San Fernando Valley site is too far from inner-city neighborhoods. Despite the opposition and questions, the council kept the proposal alive for the time being by directing the Recreation and Parks Department to work out a possible lease of 1.5 acres at the recreation area.

The MTA board agreed Thursday to begin negotiations on the first two development proposals for agency land near the North Hollywood subway station--a new Los Angeles Children's Museum and a senior housing project planned by the recording academy. But both proposals faced serious questions Thursday over whether they are the best use of valuable land near the Red Line station, which will open June 24.

The Los Angeles Children's Museum should move to the soon-to-open North Hollywood subway station, providing easy access to children throughout the county, an official proposed Thursday. In a motion to be considered by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority board on Thursday, Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky asked that the agency negotiate a long-term lease of MTA land. Officials are considering a site at the southeast corner of Lankershim Boulevard and Cumpston Street.

For two decades the Los Angeles Children's Museum has been housed in a space intended for a Japanese restaurant in the busy Civic Center area, and serving up to 200,000 kids and their parents annually in that cramped and increasingly worn-out setting is no longer viable.

After more than a decade of searching for a new home, Los Angeles Children's Museum officials have set their sights on city-owned land on the fringes of Griffith Park, an area that could serve more children than the current cramped space downtown. This 6 1/2-acre site, near the southeastern edge of the park, is quickly winning favor over another proposed park location across the street from Travel Town Museum, which met with intense opposition from environmental and equestrian groups.

* Mission: To inspire and motivate children to read by introducing them to books and theater through live presentations of stories. As part of its literacy effort, the Los Angeles Children's Museum created the Reader's Theatre Project six years ago. Now, at least least once a month, seven actors and musicians bring stories to life in the museum's Louis B. Mayer Theatre. About 100 people, mostly 4- to 10-year-olds and accompanying grown-ups, attend each 40-minute performance.
