When park administrators and Calabasas city officials speak publicly about the controversial Micor housing development proposed in the Santa Monica Mountains, they discuss such considerations as traffic volume, visual impact and open space needs. They have kept quiet however, about a more critical factor. As big and intrusive as the project may be, some insiders believe it holds the key to stopping a far more controversial proposal: The expansion of Soka University.

At a meeting punctuated by personal attacks and innuendo, the Calabasas City Council late Wednesday night approved for the second time plans to build a luxury housing project in a secluded canyon east of Las Virgenes Road. Micor Ventures' proposal to build 250 homes on 938 acres was the council's first major land-use decision, but it has also evolved into one of its most troublesome. And no one expects Wednesday's approval to be the final word.

Proponents of Micor Ventures' luxury housing tract on the edge of Calabasas are pressing state parks director Donald W. Murphy to withdraw a letter that contends the project would harm Malibu Creek State Park and Malibu Lagoon State Beach. Along with Micor president Michael Rosenfeld, the effort has been championed by Sacramento lobbyist and former GOP Assembly leader Bob Naylor.

The Calabasas City Council has given final approval to construction of a luxury housing project that residents reluctantly supported because it holds the promise of curtailing further development in the Santa Monica Mountains.

A Los Angeles County board Wednesday allowed Calabasas to annex nearly 1,000 acres for a luxury housing project that critics complain will severely damage sensitive wildlife habitat, but which defenders say actually preserves open space.

An environmental group has sued the city of Calabasas, claiming that the City Council did not follow proper procedures when it gave preliminary approval to Micor Ventures' proposal to build a gated community of 250 luxury homes.
