The City Council, after approving a 10-unit condominium by a 3-2 vote, asked the city attorney to draw up an ordinance establishing a moratorium on construction of multifamily residential buildings until the Planning Commission finishes reviewing a list of density measures. "If this is not done," said Mayor Paul A. Jacobs, who asked for the moratorium, "there will be a substantial negative effect on our streets, parking, parks and infrastructure." But Jody Hall-Esser, community development director, said there may be legal problems in instituting such a moratorium.

The City Council this week unanimously adopted an interim ordinance that limits the height of new buildings to 58.5 feet, with an additional 13.5 feet allowed for architectural features and mechanical or electrical equipment. The ordinance took effect immediately, replacing an earlier ordinance that stipulated a 97-foot height limit and required City Council review for all buildings over 43 feet. City Atty. Joseph Pannone said the ordinance would not supersede stricter height limits already in effect in some areas of the city.

For Sashi Kuchiki, the Olympic dream began in a dim, long-forgotten ice rink in Japan, a rink illuminated by a single light. Three decades later, Kuchiki is still pursuing that dream on ice, sometimes seven days a week, on well-lit, well-kept rinks all over Southern California. Not longer himself, though. At 51, his Olympic hopes are long gone. Now he skates for his daughters, Tamara, 14, and Natasha, 12. Both of the Canoga Park girls are rising stars in the skating universe.
