The Northridge Chamber of Commerce is regrouping after several quiet years, members say. Once among the largest chambers in the San Fernando Valley, the group has lately suffered the fate of many such organizations across the state--declining membership. Its membership has dropped from about 600 in the mid-1980s to 250 now. "I think we have bottomed out," said Jim Beal, chamber president and Northridge attorney.

Iwould like to set the record straight about an omission in the recent James Quinn article (July 8) on parking problems at the northwest corner of Nordhoff Street and Corbin Avenue, Northridge. Under the guidance of its president, Robert Manheim, the Northridge Chamber of Commerce instigated the investigation that led to the course of action taken by the Department of Transportation to help resolve the congested parking situation at this intersection. I would like to publicly thank Bob Manheim and the Northridge Chamber of Commerce for their contribution in this matter.

Re "112 Candidates Vie for Charter Reform Panel," Jan. 28. It is curious that only about 25 candidates have signed up to run for the eight City Council seats that are up for grabs in the April election. One would think more people would be interested in the job. On the other hand, 112 candidates signed up to run for 15 charter commissioner seats. These folks get no salary at all. What a delight to learn that 112 Angelenos are willing to donate two free years of their lives to improving the operation of the city, just because they want to help.

Visiting the San Fernando Valley for the second time in as many days, Mayor Richard Riordan Thursday sought to quell persistent talk about secession by emphasizing how his latest budget benefits the Valley. "From Northridge to North Hollywood, there will be much more done in the Valley," he told a group of about 150 guests at a Northridge Chamber of Commerce luncheon.

What a delight to learn that Cal State Northridge is now actively looking for entertainment production facilities and high-tech industries to locate on its North Campus ("Research Park May Fill Void at CSUN," Nov. 1). This is a much better use of the property than the shopping center concept promoted by the school for the past two years. The new tenants will provide revenue to the school and can provide on-site internships and training opportunities that will greatly assist the school in its primary function of educating 25,000 students.

A memorial service is planned today for Robert W. Manheim, who was active in many San Fernando Valley organizations. A Valley resident for more than 40 years, Manheim died March 6 of cancer at his Northridge home, according to a family spokeswoman. He was 70. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Manheim served in World War II and the Korean War as a naval aviator. Following his retirement from the U.S. Navy as a lieutenant commander in the late 1950s, he was involved in local civic affairs.
