Train commuters unhappy about losing free parking spaces to a new, $2-per-day garage claimed Wednesday that downtown merchants are gaining customer parking at their expense. Merchants claimed just the opposite. "For years, the commuters have been taking our parking spaces and walking past our shops," said Mike Darnold, co-chair of the Downtown Merchants Assn.

The City Council has approved paying for a $224,924 project study report on the Ortega Highway-Interstate 5 interchange. City Manager George Scarborough said the intersection is the city's "critical traffic point."

Ross lives only about five minutes away, but he starts early to get one of the 131 parking spaces in the Franciscan Plaza next to the historic depot. "I always wonder what happens to No. 132," Ross said. As co-chairman of the Amtrak Commuters Assn.

The budget also includes more than $3 million for public safety, $2.

Recreational vehicles stored in the city's Los Rios district lot will pay an extra 50 cents a foot starting April 1. The City Council unanimously approved the price increase last week, which bumps the cost per foot from $1.25 to $1.75. The rate is based on the length of each vehicle. The price hike will generate about $38,100 in revenue per year, which covers the city's cost for the lot, said David P. Bentz, San Juan Capistrano's finance director.

The City Council will seek public comment Tuesday as it begins discussions on the proposed 1997-98 city budget.

Among other things, the council will be deciding which community groups should receive city funds. Last year, $44,000 was given to community groups.

Saying the city doesn't have the means to finance a larger community center, the City Council this week decided to stick with original plans for the $1.8-million project. By a vote of 3 to 2, the council decided to stay with its current plan for a 9,180-square-foot center, including a 1,800-square-foot community hall and a game room and lounge for seniors. They opted against a plan that would have enlarged the community hall to 4,200 square feet and cost the city an additional $846,000.

Construction crews are repairing the front adobe wall of Mission San Juan Capistrano that collapsed four years ago in heavy rains. Masons have worked since Monday to rebuild a 57-foot portion of the mission's rolling wall near the front gate. The repairs will restore the protective shield surrounding the "Jewel of the Missions." "It was like having your front teeth out," mission administrator Jerry Miller said of the hole in the wall.

Officials in three cities proceeded this week with plans to spend their share of a $100-million state fund set up by the Legislature in January for the Citizens Option for Public Safety program, known as COPS. The windfall was especially welcome in Buena Park, where the Police Department just last month slashed programs to help balance the city's budget.

Trustees of the Capistrano Unified School District approved a revised $165-million budget this week for the 1996-97 school year that is $7 million more than the tentative budget previously approved in June. The new spending plan is bigger because the state budget Gov. Pete Wilson signed on July 15 allocates more state funds for education. The tentative budget had shown a $3.6-million deficit, but with the additional money, that shortfall was erased.

A $9,300 campaign to encourage residents and outsiders to shop and dine in downtown won approval this week from the City Council. The "Shop and Dine" will include direct mail, signs in neighboring cities and information packets for hotel guests.

The City Council has approved a $10-million annual budget that includes money to hire a deputy for a community policing program but eliminates three other city positions and halves the hours of a fourth employee.
