The City Council has approved the temporary closure of on-street parking on both sides of Glassell Street between Maple Avenue and Walnut Avenue from June 5 to Sept. 5, to accommodate a street reconstruction project.

Residents of Old Towne's East Culver Avenue will have some resolution to their zoning conflicts within the next few months--but at least some of the homeowners are destined for disappointment. At a recent discussion, City Council members reviewed six options for dealing with the zoning on the south side of the street, which now allows multiple units in the single-family neighborhood. They ended by asking city planners to develop more detail on a few options and to come up with new combinations.

Fearing they may be left out of transit plans, City Council members have reluctantly agreed to go along with their neighbors by offering tentative support for a light rail system for North County. Council members said Tuesday they are worried about the cost of running a railway system, but acknowledged that larger cities already have voiced support of that plan. "I think we should consider being a player here," City Manager David L. Rudat said.

City officials have maneuvered around a legal bump in the road and plan to begin a major street-widening project within the year. A plan to add right- and left-hand turn lanes at La Veta Avenue and Main Street was stalled in courts for nearly two years because the Daum family challenged the seizure of their property on that corner. City attorneys tentatively settled with the Daums for just over $2 million at the end of last year, a family member said. The city had originally offered $1.

A long-running dispute with Villa Park over a left-turn lane into a popular shopping center has finally been resolved. The Orange City Council this week adopted a compromise: to build a left-turn-only lane on Santiago Boulevard for drivers turning into Villa Park Town Center after entering Santiago from Brookside Avenue, which is in Orange. The problem is that Brookside does not align with the main entrance to the shopping center.

A section of La Veta Avenue will widen from two to four lanes as traffic increases over the next 20 years. The City Council named the street as a modified secondary arterial highway to bring it into conformity with their master plan and to ensure the city's continued eligibility for $70 million in Measure M transportation funds.

Homeowners clashed with apartment tenants and a business representative in an emotional debate about the partial closure of Adams Avenue during a public hearing this week. The City Council on Tuesday faced a nearly full house of angry residents. Homeowners, many of whom moved to Adams years ago when it was a quiet neighborhood, argued that the traffic is now dangerous. Apartment dwellers say they need the street open. Business owners said they would lose customers if the street were closed.

Promoters of special events that require closing streets around the Old Towne Plaza may have to file early for their permits and jostle with competing events for the privilege. The City Council is expected to approve a new policy today that defines the criteria by which permits for such festivities are granted.

A traffic light proposed for the busy Handy Street-Collins Avenue intersection will not be erected any time soon. Residents who oppose the plan, fearing that a signal would encourage motorists to speed through the intersection to beat the light, managed this week to delay approval of the project. Instead, City Council members agreed to create a Handy Neighborhood Preservation Committee to study the issue.
