The Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse, expected to open in about a year, will have 212 parking spots, which are reserved for government-owned vehicles and judges, said Mary Filippini, spokeswoman for the U.S.

Congressional budget cutters took their axes to it. The vice president temporarily halted its construction. Even a harsh Italian winter marred the building process. Nearly a decade after it was planned, the Ronald Reagan Federal Building in Santa Ana is set to open next month--a year behind schedule but on budget. It is a spacious 10-story building draped in glass and marble that houses state-of-the art courtrooms and airy public galleries with sweeping views of the county.

After surviving the axes of congressional budget cutters and the knives of government cost reviewers, the Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse in Santa Ana faces another formidable challenge: where to get tons of Italian marble needed to adorn the building. Officials said the 10-story structure, which will house 14 elegant courtrooms, will not meet its December 1997 completion date because of contracting snafus and concerns over the quality of the travertine marble being quarried in Tivoli, Italy.

The soon-to-open Ronald Reagan Federal Courthouse in Santa Ana is about to be subject to an act of Congress. The government spent all of its art appropriations for the $123-million building but neglected to purchase a single picture or statue of the former president. "You've flown in and out of John Wayne Airport? Well, there's a statue of John Wayne there," said Rep.

Barricades started going up Tuesday around federal buildings at the Santa Ana Civic Center in response to the Oklahoma City bombing, eliminating parking spaces and bus stops on two downtown streets. "Basically, we're going to tighten security at all our court facilities," said Arthur Banks, who supervised the U.S. marshal's office in Santa Ana. "We are concerned about everybody who enters those buildings. The safety of the public and our judges is paramount."

Desperate to ensure that the 4th District Court of Appeal doesn't move to UC Irvine, Santa Ana has offered to sell the state nearly 2 acres downtown for $1 on which to build a $17-million courthouse. UC Irvine, which sees an appellate court on campus as a major step toward establishing a much-wanted law school, has offered to sell the state 2.5 acres near its research park for $2.4 million.

UC Irvine has told state officials it will make a proposal for a state appellate courthouse in Orange County to be built on campus, challenging Santa Ana for the $17-million project. Santa Ana, home to the 4th District Court of Appeal, has pitched the idea of a new court for two years as a vital part of the city's redevelopment, while UC Irvine had said it would act only if Santa Ana's bid failed.
