What's in a name? Plenty, if you ask Los Angeles City Councilman Joel Wachs. And that's the problem. Wachs asked his council colleagues Tuesday to create a policy for naming city properties. Among his first proposals: that the person be dead before a building, park or pool is named after them. And that properties be renamed if that person's reputation becomes discredited. Several City Council members supported creating a policy but they warned that communities should have input.

Six months after the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power vacated 25% of its San Fernando Valley headquarters building in a reorganization, the offices remain without tenants. At the same time, the city is spending millions of dollars leasing space in private buildings elsewhere in the Valley. Today, the City Council is scheduled to consider whether to approve a three-year, $464,000 lease for space in a privately owned building on Van Nuys Boulevard.

Los Angeles City Councilwoman Joy Picus on Wednesday introduced a motion to preserve as open space undeveloped agricultural property in and around Pierce College. Joy Nuell, a spokeswoman for the councilwoman, said the motion was a "symbolic proposal" to the surrounding residential community, which wants the agricultural land around the campus preserved. More than half of the 400-acre college is open space, officials said. College officials said there were no plans to develop the property.

Four months after 82-year-old Viola McClain was killed in the aftermath of a gang rape of a girl in a vacant house in Watts, the Los Angeles City Council voted Tuesday to buy the house, raze it and replace it with a prefabricated home to be sold to a low-income family. The move is part of a new program in which the city will acquire and rehabilitate nuisance properties throughout the city.

A tug of war between San Fernando Valley lawmakers was averted Tuesday when the Los Angeles City Council voted to negotiate the purchase of a 5 1/2-acre site in West Hills to build a new emergency communications center. Councilman Marvin Braude, who represents parts of Van Nuys, last week had argued to build the communication center at the Van Nuys Civic Center, to help revitalize that aging facility.
