With a goal to spruce up the scenery for drivers coming and going on San Fernando Valley freeways, part of the Valley Gateways Project was unveiled Friday at the Roscoe Boulevard on- and offramps of the San Diego Freeway. Assembly Speaker Robert Hertzberg (D-Van Nuys) and the Economic Alliance of the San Fernando Valley have teamed up for the $250,000 beautification project that will landscape major freeway on- and offramps in the area.

Taking sides in a dispute between the mayor and the city's top bureaucrat, the Board of Public Works will act next week on a contract to build a $20-million police dispatch center in the San Fernando Valley, board President Ellen Stein said Thursday. Acting City Administrative Officer Paul Cauley had asked the board to delay until he has completed a study into whether the city could save $7 million by moving the 911 project to Sun Valley.

Millions of dollars for sidewalks, recreation centers and fire stations would flow to a neglected stretch of the northeast Valley under the $4.9-billion budget proposed Thursday by Mayor Richard Riordan. The spending plan--which includes $1.3-million to spruce up streets, alleys and parks in Pacoima and Panorama City--won praise from Councilman Alex Padilla, a Riordan ally who has often charged that his working-class district suffers from a dearth of basic city services.

Bowing to pressure from Mayor Richard Riordan, city officials awarded a $37.7-million contract Wednesday for new 911 centers in downtown Los Angeles and West Hills, projects approved by voters nearly seven years ago. Tutor Saliba Corp. of Sylmar, which turned in the lowest of three bids, was picked and plans to begin construction in a few weeks on the newly expedited projects. About 8,400 callers to 911 hang up each month because operators cannot get to them quickly enough, said Police Capt.

Citing the plague of blight and poverty in the northeast San Fernando Valley, the Los Angeles City Council moved Tuesday to step up economic development in the area and provide incentives for manufacturing and retail operations. "This motion is a small step, but a significant step, in one of the long-term initiatives: bringing about economic development and revitalization in one of the hardest-suffering areas of our city," said Councilman Alex Padilla, who represents much of the area.

An official with the city's Bureau of Street Service recommended Wednesday at a hearing of a Los Angeles City Council panel that $4.84 million for sidewalk construction and improvements be included in next year's city operating budget. If approved by the full council, it would be the first such allocation in more than two decades, officials said.

On a small stretch of Screenland Drive next to the Ventura Freeway, a rusty chain link fence is the only barrier between Dan Zappin's house and the speeding cars. "It's tough to sleep," said Zappin, 25, who has lived in the house for one year. "And if we go out . . . we have to yell to talk to one another." Zappin and his neighbors may be yelling for a few more years. He lives in an area that has been promised a sound wall since 1989.

A new downtown 911 communications center will begin operations in July 2002, but a backup center in West Hills will not be completed until 2003, Los Angeles Police Department officials said Monday. Los Angeles City Councilwoman Laura Chick, who heads the council's Public Safety Committee, said she was disappointed to hear about the delay, which was explained during a briefing of her panel Monday.
