As part of its ongoing efforts to boost business, the City Council has given preliminary approval to an ordinance that will allow gas stations to open convenience stores. Several gas station owners had contacted the Newport Harbor Chamber of Commerce about abolishing a 25-year-old ordinance prohibiting them from opening convenience stores on gas station lots. Councilman John W. Hedges said Monday that there was a lot of evidence that stations were having trouble surviving in Newport Beach.

The only adult-entertainment establishment in the city will be forced to close its doors next week. Attorneys for the city of Newport Beach said Friday that Orange County Superior Court Judge Francisco Firmat upheld their request to close the Mermaid.

Because they are quiet, docile animals, pot-bellied pigs will probably be welcome in Newport Beach without a permit. Other pets, though, may not get the same reception. The City Council on Tuesday will talk about permits for animals, wild and domestic, and discuss guidelines for new-pet permits that should make it easier to own snakes and lizards that the state Department of Fish and Game allow.

It's known as Party Central. The stretch of 1950s duplexes between 54th and 36th streets along Seashore Drive in West Newport--a magnet for summer renters and college students--has an ambience that contrasts sharply with the rest of the city's affluent, homeowner neighborhoods. Over the years, the party atmosphere, noise and rowdiness had become a problem for some permanent residents.

Beginning today, the city will close Balboa Pier from midnight to 5 a.m., imposing the same curfew set in June for Newport Pier. The city's goal is to curb crime and reduce litter, City Manager Kevin J. Murphy said in a written statement. Though adopted in February, the curfew had not been enforced at Balboa Pier because signs and a gate had not been installed. Now that is done, officials said. When the Newport Pier curfew took effect, it drew a mixed response from anglers.

The city's massage technicians and therapists, who for months have been at odds with some residents and officials over regulation of their business, have been invited to help put the final touches on a new ordinance governing the issue.

No more fishing all night in this city. Beginning today, the city will close the Newport Pier from midnight to 5 a.m. in a move aimed at curtailing crime and reducing fish waste on the pier's deck. Although adopted in February, the policy did not go into effect until today. The curfew will also apply to the city's Balboa Pier but won't be enforced until a gate and signs are installed later this month, said Peggy Ducey, assistant to the city manager.
