Nearly two years after San Pedro residents first expressed concern about apartment development along Pacific Avenue, the Los Angeles City Council has enacted an ordinance intended to curb such growth and promote commercial revitalization along a 26-block stretch of the street. The Pacific Avenue interim control ordinance, adopted Wednesday by a 12-0 vote, is a temporary measure that will place restrictions on development for the next year, while city planners draft permanent controls.

As city animal control officers see it, it's a simple case of illegal sheep. "It's a routine complaint," says Lt. Tim Goffa. "He's maintaining sheep (too close) to the neighborhood dwellings." But in San Pedro, where residents are up in arms over rampant apartment construction, the battle between the city of Los Angeles and developer Art Corona is more complex than that.

The city of Los Angeles on Thursday ordered a builder to completely cover deep holes drilled for foundation pilings at a construction site for a two-story house in San Pedro. The open work site at 525 Shepard St., near Pacific Avenue, must either be fenced or 24 holes must be covered at night, said Alexander Bruce, manager of the San Pedro branch of the Department of Building and Safety. The order was issued to the home's builder, Atul Jain, who lists a post office box in Westchester on permit applications, Bruce said Thursday.

On Saturday afternoon, March 18, approximately 300 San Pedro residents came together at Peck Park auditorium. For 300 San Pedro residents to gather on such a lovely springlike day, the reason had to be important. It was, for today San Pedro has a crisis brewing. The crisis is a building industry that has gone crazy. Anyone who has to travel on Pacific Avenue or Gaffey Street in the mornings and early evenings or wants to park his car in front of his residence knows what I am writing about.

Jantina Hoyt picked out sugar, cigarettes and soap from the shelves, then braved a long line at the checkout counter. Hoyt, 72, did not seem to mind the wait, even though the counter next to her was closed and bright red signs swinging from the ceiling informed patrons that all cash registers would be open during rush hours. What bothered her was the fact that on Monday the Vons supermarket will close permanently.
