Adams Square, Tropico, High Line Road and a dozen other neighborhoods are all part of the puzzle that equals southern Glendale. But have they lost their identity as the city has grown and their unique houses and shops were razed to make way for apartment buildings?

As part of a campaign to enhance and preserve neighborhoods citywide, the Planning Commission Friday made 50 recommendations for east Anaheim. Planning Commission Chairman Bob Messe said most of east Anaheim is "lovely, but some areas need improvement. . . . If we are able to get all these recommendations in, it will be an improved area and a model for the rest of the city." A blighted area south of the Riverside Freeway and east of State College Boulevard is among those that would benefit.

In addition to living in one of these areas, I am a real estate agent who works in the neighborhoods--North Park, University Heights, Normal Heights, Hillcrest, Golden Hill--and I find myself listening to both sides and often being asked for an opinion or a solution.

People with Chinese or Vietnamese roots are as segregated as Latinos in neighborhoods nationwide, a study from Brown University has found. In Los Angeles and Orange counties, the pattern is even more extreme - and has grown more so over the last two decades. But the same study suggests that that may not necessarily be a problem. In many cities, some Asian Americans live in neighborhoods that appear "separate but equal," with incomes and education levels as high or higher than largely white neighborhoods, researchers said.

On the surface, the matter before the Cultural Heritage Commission on Wednesday was a proposal to preserve the architectural character of two residential neighborhoods in the Miracle Mile area. But the real issue was change--whether a trend toward high-density housing will continue there and whether 60-year-old buildings with gables, towers and curving archways will survive north of Wilshire Boulevard.

Waits for 911 medical aid vary dramatically across Los Angeles and many of the city's most exclusive neighborhoods have the longest response times, according to a Times investigation. Under national standards adopted by the Los Angeles Fire Department, rescuers are supposed to arrive within six minutes to almost all medical emergencies. But the Times analysis found that in affluent hillside communities stretching from Griffith Park to Pacific Palisades, firefighters failed to hit that mark nearly 85% of the time.
