Maybe they can work out of a car?: Strapped for cash, the Irvine Unified School District might sell four properties, including its 35,000-square-foot headquarters on Barranca Parkway. If the idea is approved, the district hopes to sell the property to a buyer willing to give the district a long-term lease. But given the deep cutbacks the district faces, Deputy Supt.

A controversial plan to build a Taco Bell restaurant across Coast Highway from the Balboa Bay Club goes before the Newport Beach City Council tonight.

A city policy aimed at installation of sidewalks along residential streets is slowly getting results--but in a way that makes some streets look like a crazy quilt. "You can probably find, in the city of Newport Beach, an example of anything that you want to come up with in the way of sidewalks or lack thereof," City Engineer Don Webb said.

A plan to take utility lines underground has angered a handful of Corona del Mar residents who say they are being asked to pay too much for too little. A 1913 law authorizes cities to form assessment districts with approval of half the property owners in the proposed district. It states that owners should bear the cost of improvements in proportion to each's benefit. The district at issue is bounded by Seaview, Goldenrod and Fernleaf avenues and Bay View Drive.
It wasn't a huge hit, but the Hard Rock Cafe's request for a 50-foot-tall, guitar-shaped sign at its proposed Fashion Island location was approved by the Newport Beach Planning Commission on Thursday night. Although three of the commissioners opposed the size of the flashing sign, the other four voted to allow it, with the proviso that they would review the situation 90 days after the sign goes up. "Some energy in the city might be quite wonderful," Commissioner Norma Glover said.
