Students, teachers and residents were split between overwhelming support Monday for a $6-million ballpark at Saddleback College and fear that the college is rushing to a decision. "I love the idea of being taken out to the ballgame," Robert Cosgrove, a faculty member and president of the college Academic Senate, told the crowd of about 200 at the public forum. "I don't like the idea of being taken to the cleaners."

Residents who stormed a City Council meeting this week to protest a 525-unit apartment complex will have their concerns addressed at a special community meeting in November, city planning officials said Tuesday. After hearing about 100 residents speak for nearly four hours Monday night against the project, planned for 19 acres at Puerto Real near Crown Valley Parkway, the council agreed to delay a decision on the apartment complex until Dec. 9 and schedule the community meeting.

A zoning change that would clear the way for construction of a 525-unit apartment complex near Crown Valley Parkway and Los Altos will be considered by the City Council and Planning Commission on Monday. The proposal would convert the zoning for a 19.5-acre parcel owned by Mission Viejo Co. from commercial to residential. If it is approved, the company would then submit plans for the apartment complex.

As construction starts on a 200,000-square-foot entertainment mall, the City Council will meet today to settle parking and access issues connected with the so-called Kaleidoscope project. The city became partners last year with the developer, Pacific Development Partners Inc., investing $2 million to build the mall, which is to include specialty shops and entertainment such as a theater complex and a community concert venue.

Although leaning toward overturning a Planning Commission denial of plans to expand a Unocal gas station, the City Council on Monday delayed a decision on the appeal. The Unocal proposal seeks to add an express carwash and a convenience store with beer and wine sales to the existing gas station at Crown Valley Parkway and Puerto Real. Planning commissioners had turned down the project last month, saying the expansion would overcrowd the 32,000-square-foot lot. Mayor Sherri M.

Plans to add a car wash and allow beer and wine sales at a Unocal gas station were denied Monday on a 3-2 vote by the Planning Commission. Commissioners believed the proposed expansion would have overcrowded the corner lot at Crown Valley Parkway and Puerta Real, an intersection that is already one of the busiest in the city.

City planners have recommended against a plan to add an express carwash and beer and liquor outlet at a Union Oil station. The expansion would generate more traffic in what is already a crowded intersection at Crown Valley Parkway and Puerto Real, Planning Director Clint Sherrod said. "This is the most active area in the city," he said this week. "This plan is too congested, and we're recommending denial."

The city will get $1.1 million for recreational facilities and roads under an agreement between the Mission Viejo Co. and the City Council. In a closed session Monday night, the council agreed to accept a cash settlement instead of requiring the company to build an 11-acre park at Olympiad Road and Alicia Parkway. The company made a commitment in 1987 to build the park as part of a development agreement for the planned community of Mission Viejo.

The city will return about $500,000 of the $3.5 million it was paid for land slated for a housing development because of unstable slopes on the property, officials said this week. City Manager Dan Joseph said the developer will have to cut into slopes on the property at a sharper angle than expected, which means that stabilizing the hillside will be more expensive that first projected.

A controversial 47-unit housing project that would have stripped most of the parking from the Nadadores Swim Club and a YMCA has been scuttled by the developer. Unable to win concessions to exceed city standards for housing density, project developer Polygon Communities has returned the Casta Del Sol property to its previous owner, the Mission Viejo Co. Under the Mission Viejo Co., the 9.2-acre parcel near Casta del Sol and Marguerite Parkway had been approved for 27 units.
