The Staples Arena, playground-to-be for hockey's Kings and basketball's Lakers and Clippers, is rising fast near the Convention Center. Planning has begun on an entertainment complex and hotel to be built on nearby land.

I have been following the newspaper accounts of the controversy regarding new commercial real estate development in Los Angeles, in particular that in the Westwood area ("Westwood Zoning Plan Unveiled," March 8). I am dismayed at the lack of progress that has been made to solve the problem. It seems that the major complaint voiced is that of traffic congestion, yet no one seems to come up with a solution except to curb growth of new buildings. This solution, however, would adversely affect both sides.

The City of Los Angeles recently approved construction of Watt City Center, a 1.6-million-square-foot office complex located downtown, west of the Harbor Freeway. As part of the deal, the developers agreed to include an on-site day-care center, implement a state-of-the-art traffic management system and pay $38 million in fees and taxes. That added about $24 a square foot to the cost of construction. Nonetheless, some citizens groups wanted the city to impose even greater taxes and fees.

After an emotional four-hour public hearing, the Simi Valley City Council voted 4 to 0 early Tuesday to quash the school district's plan to build a retail center and housing on 36 acres across from the Civic Center. The unified school district, working with two private developers, was counting on the project to generate $39 million over the next 10 years for school maintenance and repairs at a time when state dollars for education are becoming more scarce.

The development proposal would require a zoning change of the 36-acre parcel to allow 26 acres to be used for commercial development, officials said.

For many drivers, there is a special kind of aggravation associated with the traffic congestion that chronically afflicts the stretch of Santa Monica Boulevard between Beverly Hills and the San Diego Freeway. What makes traffic jams there all the more frustrating for the 98,000 people who travel the route every day is a strip of weedy land that splits the corridor into what residents call big and little Santa Monica boulevards.
