The Los Angeles City Council paved the way Tuesday for builders to halve commercial development planned for the Porter Ranch area in the northwest San Fernando Valley. In changing the city's planning designation for the area from "regional" commercial to "community" commercial, city officials recognized what the Porter Ranch Development Co. had already determined--that the market made construction of 6 million square feet of retail shops and office towers impractical.

Your editorial "New Names Create More Division, Less Community" (Oct. 6) is absolutely correct. But you offer no solution. What a pity the issue wasn't given more exposure when these self-serving changes started. I take issue with your assertion that "residents, of course, have the right to name their neighborhoods whatever they want." Why? Unless it is a newly established community, they should only be able to do so if special circumstances exist. Otherwise our communities' names will change at the whim of any group having enough influence to do so. Imagine the ramifications of such whimsical actions; where would it stop?

The Valley Fair Board of Directors, citing dissatisfaction with its present home at Burbank's Equestrian Center and lack of cooperation by other local venues, said Friday that the fair most likely will move to the Santa Clarita Valley. The nine-member board, which has been negotiating with the city of Santa Clarita, decided to make that area its first choice for a permanent relocation site, said Bob Scott, a board member. The move would not take place until at least 2000, he said.

Planning on attending today's American Legion District 20 All-Star baseball game at Burroughs High? Better show up early. Because of the recent closure of athletic facilities at Los Angeles Unified School District campuses, the game was moved from spacious Birmingham High, a district field, to the more compact Burroughs site, which is under the auspices of the Burbank Unified School District. Game time is 1 p.m. Burroughs is cozy in more than just the seating area.
