Despite objections that it "will mar the integrity of the landscape," the Board of Port Commissioners on Tuesday unanimously approved a revised proposal for a new Seaport Village parking garage. Richard Alexander Burt, the attorney for Seaport Village, said he hoped construction on the facility could begin by next spring. Don Wood, a spokesman for Citizens Coordinate-Century III, a local urban planning group that is the leading critic of the project, conceded that Tuesday's 6-0 vote was "a setback" and "a bitter disappointment" but not the final action.

Opponents of a planned $2.7-million, five-level parking garage in West Hollywood Park have questioned the need for the project, saying that hundreds of public parking spaces at the Pacific Design Center across the street from the park go unused. "It doesn't make sense for the city to talk about spending money for a parking structure (in the park), when you've got all this parking across the street that nobody is using," community activist Ralph Feeley said. City officials announced last week that the garage, which would accommodate up to 314 vehicles, represents a first step in the construction of the city's long-planned civic center and an effort by city officials to fulfill a promise to the business community to provide much-needed additional public parking.

In an effort to aid the proposed $3-billion Disneyland Westcot resort, Orange County transportation officials will probably vote Monday to seek federal money to build one of Disney's parking garages. And in a major policy breakthrough, a plan tentatively agreed to by Disney, Anaheim and the state Department of Transportation calls for rail and bus stops as well as a park-and-ride facility at the seven-story building.

The Federal Aviation Administration has warned pilots of jumbo jets landing at Lindbergh Field not to rely on the airport's landing light system because it could lead them to crash into the corner of a six-story parking garage near the airport, according to an FAA report made public on Thursday. Despite that warning, the FAA report concludes that the building, located 710 feet from the start of the runway, does not pose a safety hazard to landing aircraft other than to the jumbo jets.

To help visitors find their way back to their cars, the property manager of a 26-story Century City office building has done away with color-coded floors, numbers and letters. Instead, each of the four parking levels beneath the Century City North building is named for a movie.
