A Calabasas homeowners group appears to have cleared its first hurdle in forcing a referendum to stop a large-scale commercial and retail center approved last year by the City Council. The Save Our City Committee said Thursday it had at least 2,054 unverified signatures. If 1,152 signatures are deemed valid, according to the city clerk's office, it would force a referendum. The group had until 5 p.m. today to collect the necessary signatures, under the state elections code.

The Calabasas City Council has postponed setting a referendum election for a controversial retail and commercial center, saying it must first resolve a key, precedent-setting legal question. Last year the council approved the 1.3-million-square-foot Calabasas Park Centre at Calabasas Road and Parkway Calabasas. In July, homeowners opposed to the project turned in the 1,152 signatures required to force a referendum.

A Calabasas homeowners group has succeeded in forcing a referendum on a controversial commercial and retail development approved last year by the City Council. The group, which opposes the center, collected more than the 1,152 signatures needed to qualify for the ballot, City Clerk Robin Parker said Thursday. "The residents of Calabasas are displeased about what's going on and they want to put it to a vote," said Steve Sklar, a spokesman for the group.

For 18 years, Supervisor Kenneth Hahn has campaigned to enlarge Los Angeles County's governing board to seven members, contending that the five supervisors cannot adequately represent districts that have larger populations than many states. Hahn's long struggle appeared closer to fruition when the election of Gloria Molina this year established a liberal majority that favors adding supervisors.

A voters referendum has, for now, been rejected by the Burbank City Council as a condition for a possible sports arena in the city. "We're not going to be doing anything on a sports arena anytime soon," Councilwoman Susan Spanos said. "I believe this discussion is premature by a few years."

The State Board of Education has approved a referendum on the November ballot that will allow voters in Agua Dulce and Acton to decide whether to stop busing local high school students to Palmdale and send them to a neighborhood school instead. If voters approve the parent-initiated proposal, about 400 students who now attend classes up to an hour away in the Antelope Valley Union High School District would transfer by 1997 to the Soledad-Agua Dulce School District.
