Blame it on bureaucratic delays or on pocketbooks and patience worn thin. Whatever the reason, the proposed sale of the landmark YMCA building in downtown Santa Ana is in limbo. A year ago, when it shut its operation on Civic Center Drive, the YMCA of Orange County had hoped that by now, its 68-year-old building would be in the hands of the city's Redevelopment Agency and on its way to becoming a single-room occupancy hotel for the working poor.

Santa Ana has paid $205,000 to the family of a suspected car thief shot and killed by police in a shooting that sparked outrage in the Latino community. The shooting death of Jose Campos on Sept. 7, 1998, led to protests in the Latino community and demands that Officer James F. Tavenner be fired. Campos' family had filed a $10-million wrongful death lawsuit against Tavenner and the city. On Thursday, Lt. George Saddeh, head of police internal affairs, said the settlement was paid in January.

The city of Santa Ana's 2-year-old parking-meter program--the scorn of many a car owner--has become so successful that officials are considering extending it beyond the downtown business district. "The money has been coming in like crazy," said Roger Kooi, manager of the city's downtown development. The 628 silver-colored, 3-foot tall, bubble-headed meters are raking in nickels, dimes and quarters as well as money from parking citations.

Police will shut down five of this city's seven community substations in upcoming months, a marked change in department direction that the police chief says is driven by budget constraints and the promise of a sprawling new Civic Center headquarters. Department officials say the planned November opening of a new $100-million police complex will make the substations obsolete. But news of the closures was greeted with trepidation by some community and business leaders.

Santa Ana's city manager said Wednesday he favors granting a five-year freeze on funding cutbacks to the Bowers Museum of Cultural Art after its director argued the museum needs more money to build "a world-class reputation." While he didn't go as far as City Manager David N. Ream, Mayor Miguel A. Pulido Jr. said he was "very supportive" of the museum and would revisit the issue depending on the city's budget.

In an effort to preserve streets and save money, the city's Public Works Agency is studying imposing trench-cutting fees on utility companies that cut into roads to install power lines. The city says it pays millions to repave streets that erode more quickly after utility trenches have been cut. To recover those costs, the city recommends a fee of $9.35 per square foot for brand-new to 5-year-old arterial streets, and a fee of $2.73 per square foot for 21- to 25-year-old residential streets.
