As he approaches his 28th birthday, Los Angeles City Councilman Alex Padilla is finally leaving the nest. The city's youngest council member recently bought his first house--just around the corner from the one he grew up in and still shares with his parents. Padilla said it took him more than a year to find his two-bedroom house, a modest, sand-colored abode with hardwood floors, because there was so little turnover in his Pacoima neighborhood.

Declaring war on a local street gang tied to three recent shooting deaths, the City Council has agreed to seek a civil injunction that would bar members from engaging in a host of otherwise legal activities. Modeled after a similar action taken by the council in 1991, the injunction would prevent members of the Shaken' Cat Midgets from, among other things, gathering in public or on private property within the injunction area without written permission of the owner.

Three seats are up for grabs in the March 2 City Council election and, not surprisingly, the big issue among the five candidates is economic development. This year, as in most recent elections, community redevelopment and luring major retailers are the main issues in this mostly Latino working-class, 2.5-square-mile municipality. In 1997, for instance, Councilman Silverio Robledo campaigned with talk of a shoppers' paradise with thriving bookstores, coffee shops and restaurants.

Bolstering the supporters of an underground transit system across the San Fernando Valley, the Los Angeles City Council voted Tuesday to support the subway they favor rather than a rival elevated line over the Ventura Freeway. Following the lead of several Valley council members, the council reaffirmed the position it adopted five years ago in favor of a mostly subterranean line paralleling Burbank and Chandler boulevards for a mass transit project to be built in the coming century.

Concerned about the high concentration of nickel-plating firms in the San Fernando Valley, a City Council panel asked Tuesday for a report on limiting their location near residential neighborhoods. Councilman Hal Bernson, chairman of the Planning and Land Use Management Committee, said his recent appointment to the South Coast Air Quality Management District has helped educate him about the health hazards of fumes from nickel-plating companies.

What may well be a mere handful of voters will decide several important runoff elections on Tuesday in Los Angeles. In the primary, 57 votes separated two candidates in a school board race, so, as usual, every vote counts. There are contests for the Northeast San Fernando Valley City Council seat, the West Valley and Westside spots on the Los Angeles Board of Education and two district-wide seats on the Los Angeles Community College Board of Trustees. CITY COUNCIL--Los Angeles City Councilman Ernani Bernardi, 77, is in his own words a man who is tight with a tax dollar.

With San Fernando Valley City Council incumbents facing little in the way of major opposition in their reelection bids, the hottest April contest is expected to be the race to replace retiring Councilman Marvin Braude. In fact, Councilman Mike Feuer is heading into his first reelection bid facing only one relatively unknown challenger after Sherman Oaks businessman Jeff Brain announced Monday that he was pulling out of the race.
