City Councilman Joel Wachs urged the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to proceed in good faith as it began negotiations Friday to provide land for the Los Angeles Children's Museum to relocate next to the North Hollywood subway station.

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.
