Sammis PCA Partners added two more industrial properties to the Brea Central Business Park, having spent $30 million for all three. The partnership--which pairs the Irvine developer Sammis Co. with Boston's Property Capital Associates, a real estate investment adviser--also recently bought Sammis Business Center/Walnut for $17 million and Reyes Drive Distribution Building in the City of Industry.

Thank you for your informative article on "Keeping It Kosher" (Oct. 29). By implying, however, that Orthodox Jews are the only ones who follow Jewish dietary laws, your article unwittingly makes keeping kosher sound hopelessly provincial, obscure and arduous. An increasing number of moderate and liberal Jews are establishing kosher households along a continuum of levels of observance.

Two companies based here--O'Donnell Armstrong & Partners Inc. and Sammis Co.--are discussing a merger that would place the combined firm among the nation's largest commercial real estate firms. Don Grant, O'Donnell's chief operating officer, and John Hagestad, Sammis' executive vice president, said Tuesday that the two concerns have been studying the benefits of a merger since fall and might make a decision as soon as next month.

Speculative construction was a common real estate strategy during the go-go 1980s. In recent years, however, developing a major project without advance commitments from tenants or buyers has virtually disappeared due to the twin pressures of tight money and the recession. But "spec" construction has returned to Ventura County. Last week, The Sammis Co.

A mall. A mall! Not in this piece of paradise, scores of residents say. This is not the San Fernando Valley. This is not L.A. Plans to build a large factory-outlet shopping center have drawn a groundswell of opposition from residents concerned that the $83-million project would clog the area's narrow roadways and further the urbanization of Ventura County. The 857,000-square-foot project, to be built on 87 acres of farmland along U.S.

Michael Morgan, Camarillo city councilman If it's passed in the future, I'd have to live with it, but I'm not in favor of converting agricultural land at this time. There is not an inalienable right to develop. I think that the project that's presented so far seems to be very intense for the area. It doesn't incorporate just 87 acres but 250 acres, so it's grown from a small mass to a large mass. The Sammis Co. talked about the schools being paid by Mello-Roos bonds, which are becoming less desired than they were initially because you're actually passing on a hidden tax to the folks in that area.

Bill Kobrin, Leisure Village resident Factory outlet retailing is not in the best interest of the residents of Camarillo. Unfortunately, there is not much we can do. The City Council is intent on putting an outlet center in the city regardless of how the citizens feel about it. It is good to generate as much financial activity in the city as possible, but they are not being selective of the merchandise to be sold in the outlet center. This will create a different type of customer base that will generate more congestion and pollution in the area.
