Dwindling requests for post-earthquake residential building permits has resulted in the closing of the temporary walk-up West Valley public permit counter in Reseda. The closing is a bittersweet event, said Karen Constine, chief of staff for Councilwoman Laura Chick. It marks another step in earthquake recovery and the return of a handful of building inspectors to field duties, she said.

Without warning, the sleeping giant stirred to life. There was a faint quiver at first, followed by a deep rumble that seemed to shake the walls. Then a high-pitched moan echoed down the hallway.
