Creation of a Reseda Business Improvement District has been put on hold pending an April 27 public hearing. The effort to provide a program to shore up neighborhood businesses and improve safety in order to attract trade has been spearheaded by City Councilwoman Laura Chick. "This is just one piece of the whole in making Reseda a thriving business district," Chick said at a City Council meeting this week. The district would be funded by taxing about 740 area merchants.

A group of Reseda homeowners Thursday won the latest round in a dispute over a development they say would change the character of their neighborhood. Members of the city Planning Commission, meeting at the Sherman Oaks Woman's Club, made it clear they did not favor a plan that would put 21 homes on a two-acre site near Reseda Boulevard and Calvert Street.

Hoping to perk up a sagging neighborhood noted half a century ago for its thriving mom-and-pop stores, the Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday approved a new business improvement district for Reseda. Councilwoman Laura Chick, who represents the area, has spearheaded the effort to boost safety and spruce up the appearance of the commercial corridor, which includes parts of Reseda Boulevard and Sherman Way.

A plan to develop a community youth center in Reseda was given a boost Tuesday when the City Council voted to spend $6,400 to buy computers and printers for the center. At the behest of Councilwoman Laura Chick, who represents Reseda and other parts of the west San Fernando Valley, the council voted to take the money from an office fund set aside for community cleanup projects in her district.

I'm always looking for signs that Los Angeles is surviving, and perhaps recovering from all the calamities that have hit us in the last couple of years. As a resident, and a homeowner, I want to know that the place isn't going to hell. And as a columnist, my job would be intolerably gloomy if all I wrote was bad news. I'd go back to my original career goal, sportswriting, where I'd be assured of covering winners as well as losers.

The Los Angeles Planning Commission on Thursday voted 4 to 1 to renew an interim law that would prohibit undesirable business uses from developing in Reseda's fading business core while a master plan for the area is being prepared. Interim development controls for the area have been in effect since 1988, when Councilwoman Joy Picus, who represents the area, first vowed to come up with a specific plan to revitalize the 24-block strip.

A moratorium that blocks development of new automotive shops and other types of businesses in Reseda's aging shopping district could be extended into its fifth year today, under a proposal scheduled for consideration by the Los Angeles City Planning Commission. If approved, the moratorium--as it has in the past--would affect businesses along Sherman Way between Lindley and Wilbur avenues, and along Reseda Boulevard between Kittridge and Saticoy streets.

A Los Angeles zoning panel on Tuesday approved a retirement home's request for permission to expand its facilities, despite the protests of nearby homeowners. The Los Angeles Board of Zoning Appeals went beyond a previous decision of a city zoning official, allowing the Jewish Home for the Aging to expand its one-story main building in Reseda into a five-story structure. In January, Associate Zoning Administrator Dan Green had limited the expansion to three stories.

A nine-acre park at the southern end of Reseda Boulevard could become the first visible use of $29 million in parkland acquisition funds released by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors last week. Reseda Ridge Park is scheduled to open in the spring, at a cost of $975,000. It will have picnic areas, trails and an outdoor classroom. But most of the money will be used by the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy to buy hundreds of acres of land that will be left undeveloped.

Downtown Reseda--home to discount prices, plentiful parking and a vibrant ethnic marketplace--has a new attraction: cops walking beats, as they did decades ago. Since mid-November, Los Angeles police officers have been patrolling the business district on foot in an effort to polish the neighborhood's image during the busy holiday shopping season and perhaps beyond it. But the foot patrols are more than simply an increased police presence.

The Jewish Home for the Aging, seeking to expand its residential campus, has encountered vigorous opposition to the new construction from its Reseda neighbors. Letter-writing campaigns and petition drives have swept through neighborhoods surrounding the elder-care facility. More than 20 residents attended a mid-day zoning hearing Monday to testify against a city permit and zone variance needed to allow construction to begin.

Taking a new tack to rebuild the most vulnerable of quake "ghost town" buildings, a Los Angeles housing panel tentatively approved a $900,000 loan Monday to restore a crumbling Reseda apartment complex for low-income tenants. City housing officials say the loan is the first of its kind, aimed at producing low-income housing by salvaging financially troubled buildings, primarily within the 15 designated ghost towns.

The Reseda Community and Business Alliance will meet tonight to discuss several redevelopment ideas, many of them aimed at giving the community an economic shot in the earthquake-bruised arm. "We're going to address several of the immediately doable things in the community," said Rayna Gabin, the Reseda deputy for City Councilwoman Laura Chick. Those "doables" include forming a merchants' association and a parking lot committee, and addressing the ongoing issue of earthquake recovery.
