If these buildings last as long as those of the ancient Incas and Mayans, future archeologists might someday be plumbing the remnants of a series of huge, handsomely appointed structures scattered throughout Orange County. Mostly in the southern half of the county, these structures would be found situated like major temples in the midst of vast green parklands.

November 10, 1991 | Editor's note: The Orange County Board of Supervisors last week gave up claim to land near Trabuco Canyon that had been designated as open space but on which a developer had built 21 homes. These letters represent readers' reaction to the building of these homes on open space
It boggles the mind: An engineering company, a title company and a developer, plus county officials, are all unaware that houses were to be built on public land. To "help" the developer, the Board of Supervisors (gave) up this public land. Considering that Hunsaker made a similar error in Laguna Niguel, it would appear that their engineers are unusually inept or deliberately ignore verification. A title company whose title clearance was meaningless? As an Orange County taxpayer, I wonder if there is any connection between this apparent appropriation of public land by developers and the supervisors' decision to "give" this land to them and the articles a few days ago in The Times indicating that the supervisors' campaigns are largely funded by real estate developers.

A sweeping federal investigation of municipal corruption has snared its first big target, a lobbyist long suspected of being a bagman for developers and politicians. Jeffrey T. Roberts, 43, a consultant on building projects in Fresno County, pleaded guilty last week to helping a city councilman extort a $10,000 campaign contribution from a developer.

Stepping into the middle of a dispute between a hillside developer and Pacific Palisades residents, Los Angeles officials have begun erecting a $150,000 safety fence between a cliff and nearby homes. Officials said Tuesday that they took the unusual step of hiring a private contractor to build the wall after developer Nasser Ahdoot failed to meet a deadline last week to construct it himself.

There are cracks in the walls at Chandler Park Village townhome and condominium complex in Sherman Oaks. But the biggest chasm is the one dividing the residents. Owners of 214 units have divided into rival camps over whether their homeowner association made the right decision in filing a $25-million lawsuit against the developer alleging shoddy construction. Some residents believe that the developer's construction was substandard, that he has been unwilling to fix it and that he should be sued.
