Mildred Weller spent the last decade as the proverbial wrench in the gears of the Community Redevelopment Agency, taking powerful politicians to court, badgering bureaucrats and even reducing one city official to tears. As president of North Hollywood Concerned Citizens and a member of the redevelopment agency's elected Project Area Committee, Weller was the agency's chief critic in North Hollywood, charging that it failed to revitalize the community despite spending more than $110 million.

The Los Angeles City Council voted Tuesday to uphold the election of a citizens advisory panel dominated by proponents of redevelopment in North Hollywood, rejecting challenges by critics who have turned the panel's meetings into bitter battles over the issue. By an 11-0 vote, the council validated the Oct. 13 election of 21 members to form a new North Hollywood Project Area Committee.

A citizens panel set up by the city is challenging the legality of a plan by the Community Redevelopment Agency to issue $5 million in bonds for street improvements to benefit a major film studio project proposed in North Hollywood. A statement released Tuesday by the Project Area Committee asks the city attorney's office to determine whether it is legal for the agency to issue the bonds to pay for street widening projects that will benefit the project proposed by developer J. Allen Radford.

Programs to create housing for artists in commercial buildings and promote North Hollywood to potential land buyers may be dropped as a result of a Los Angeles redevelopment panel's action this week. On Thursday, the Los Angeles Community Redevelopment Agency board tentatively approved cutting $481,000 from the North Hollywood redevelopment area's $7-million budget. The plan was part of a larger proposal to turn over $20 million to the city to ease its financial crunch.

The Los Angeles City Council on Friday disbanded a citizens advisory group dominated by critics of North Hollywood's redevelopment project and ordered an election for new members in September. The head of the group said it would not go away quietly. "This is outrageous," said Mildred Weller, chairwoman of the North Hollywood Project Area Committee. She announced after the council's 10-0 vote that the committee would hold its own election Tuesday. "This is about control," she said.

Teddy Roosevelt's advice was to speak softly and carry a big stick. To which could be added in North Hollywood: "Or at least carry a bigger one than your opponent." A meeting of the frequently quarrelsome North Hollywood Project Area Committee at St. David's Episcopal Church erupted into a battle of the gavels as two women--each considering herself the legitimate head of the citizens council--attempted to conduct the meeting.

Most incumbents retained their seats in the election of a citizens advisory panel for a controversial, multimillion-dollar city redevelopment project area in North Hollywood, according to unofficial election results released Wednesday. But neither pro- nor anti-redevelopment agency forces in the Project Area Committee claimed victory after Tuesday night's election at St. David's Episcopal Church. The 25-member panel must determine winners in April of two tie-breakers for seats on the panel.
