After 14 years and $800,000 in city expense, the Battle of Porcupine Hill is over. The City Council voted 3 to 2 Tuesday night to give up the fight to save a ridgeline and to allow developer Robert Maurer to build his dream home on a hill overlooking Capistrano Valley. Tuesday's vote followed more than five hours of negotiations last Friday conducted by Orange County Superior Court Judge Robert O. Frazee. "It was time to have the issue settled," Councilman Gary L. Hausdorfer said.

The City Council voted 4-0 Tuesday to allow former Councilman Gil Jones to add a narrow-gauge train for children to his mini-farm in the historic Los Rios commercial district. Opponents of the train, including members of the Cultural Heritage Commission, said the train did not fit the historic character of the area. But Councilman David Swerdlin argued that trains have been a century-old part of San Juan's history.

Heeding the advice of City Atty. Richard K. Denhalter, the City Council has delayed action on a proposal for a church and preschool development on Rancho Viejo Road south of the city limits. When Resco Development of Irvine requested a zoning change for the project on an 11.5-acre lot, the city staff raised several questions about environmental issues such as grading, transportation, air quality and noise.

Camino Capistrano's row of car lots will soon be joined by a new Toyota dealership on the former Rosan Ranch. The City Council voted 4 to 1 Tuesday night to change the zoning on the old ranch, now called the San Juan Capistrano Gateway, to allow the new dealership next door to the city's oldest car lot, Barwick Nissan. Camino Capistrano, which can easily be seen from Interstate 5, now has dealerships for Honda, Saturn, Dodge and Nissan, with Toyota, Ford and Jeep Eagle on the way.

Despite intense opposition from some neighbors, the City Council has agreed to allow two houses in the 200-year-old Los Rios Historic District to be used exclusively for business. The city's zoning code allows "cottage" businesses to operate in the historic neighborhood but with a requirement that the house be occupied by a full-time resident. Businesses such as a photography studio and mini-farm with pony rides have been open in the neighborhood for several years.

Linda Fisher, 41, has battled adversity all her life. When she was 3 years old and living on her parent's farm in Wisconsin, a haymower sliced off her left leg. In 1980, Fisher was diagnosed as having ovarian cancer. But the last few months of her 10-year battle have undoubtedly been the toughest. Her mother, who was caring for Fisher, died of lung cancer in July.

The City Council has postponed for two weeks a decision on plans for a 112-unit seniors-only apartment complex at Ortega Highway and Rancho Viejo Road. The delay this week was caused by a failure by the city to give public hearing notification to all adjacent property owners. But the proposed apartment complex, which would be built by Kaufman & Broad, received City Council support that clears the way for $1.55 million of tax-exempt financing through the state.
