Councilman Mike Feuer had a good idea to raise money for more public parking. So good that another council member--in fact, another Mike--had already thought of it. On Feb. 16, Feuer proposed that the city administrative officer, the Department of Transportation and the chief legislative analyst study the idea of issuing bonds to raise funds for garage construction. Feuer did so unaware that a similar motion had been introduced a few months ago by colleague Mike Hernandez.

Milligan, who operates the Hansen Dam Equestrian Center next door to the park, said he offered to build an arena there for free, six years ago. And, he said this week, the offer is still good.

To the delight of community leaders, area residents and merchants, the city moved to finally make good on a promise to do its best to have Sherman Oaks' only public parking garage open by the holiday shopping season. "It's a very festive holiday season," said Richard Close, president of the Sherman Oaks Homeowners Assn. Close said the parking lot at Dickens Street and Cedros Avenue means more business for Ventura Boulevard merchants.

Activists from across the city implored a Los Angeles City Council committee this week to exempt their neighborhoods from a proposed bus-bench contract that they say would erase years of efforts to beautify their communities. In order to carry out the proposed contract, which would replace more than 6,000 worn-out benches citywide, the city would have to rewrite the specific plans for 15 Los Angeles communities--including the Ventura Boulevard Specific Plan.
