A Cowan Heights swingers' club was not a business, but rather a private organization like the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts or Elks Lodge, a lawyer for the club's operator said in closing arguments Monday. "It was not a business, but a club to support a lifestyle," defense attorney William J. Kopeny said. Prosecutors disagreed, noting that the club's owner, Stephen M. Cohen, took out advertisements and collected fees from "patrons." The club, prosecutors say, was operated for a profit.

Downtown Santa Ana is known for its historic buildings and vibrant Latino shopping districts. The commercial center also has the distinction of being Orange County's check cashing capital, something city officials are determined to change. About three dozen check cashing businesses operate within a 1.6-mile radius of 4th and Main streets, according to an online directory.

The City Council has rejected a restaurant owner's request to have a cover charge, a change which city staff said would amount to turning the business into a nightclub. The council voted unanimously Monday to deny the permit for Mr. J's, at 2101 E. Edinger Ave., after receiving a lengthy report of concerns from city staff and police.

The City Council on Monday approved new regulations to curb the number of check-cashing businesses in Santa Ana. New businesses will be subject to stricter reviews and cannot operate within 1,000 feet of another check-cashing business. City planners are currently reviewing about 15 applications for the businesses. The city typically receives a dozen applications each year.

After years of debate, council members have declined to make any changes to the mix of homes and industrial shops in one of the city's oldest districts. The council this week adopted updates to a planning document guiding development, but voted against a zoning change for the Logan neighborhood. Five property owners asked that the area be zoned all industrial to better accommodate business needs.

What to do with a parcel of land next to MainPlace/Santa Ana will be the topic for a public hearing at Tuesday's City Council meeting. Officials say the property, between the mall and the Santa Ana Freeway, is too small to be developed but is large enough to have become an eyesore. The property is now zoned for commercial use. City planners are recommending that it be rezoned as open space.

New sign and building requirements will be among the proposals reviewed by the City Council Monday as it considers zoning modifications along south Main Street. Though the area between First and Warner streets is already near its capacity for businesses, city officials said, zoning modifications will ease the permit process for future enterprises.

Longstanding tension between businesses and residents in the Logan neighborhood now threatens to tear the area apart. Today the City Council will conduct a study session on whether to keep the neighborhood zoned residential or change the zoning to manufacturing. "The idea is to make [Logan] one or the other," Councilwoman Patricia A. McGuigan said. The conflict began in 1929 when the Santa Fe Railroad came to Santa Ana, and the city declared Logan an industrial zone, rather than residential.

The City Council has approved variances allowing construction of a church on Pomona Street but has warned its owners that the church will be closed if parking in the immediate area became a problem. The council voted 6 to 1 this week to approve several variances required for the project at 112 E. Pomona St. Councilwoman Patricia McGuigan opposed the motion, saying that when the council previously approved similar plans for a church, the building led to parking and traffic problems.

To better control the placement of stores selling liquor, the Santa Ana City Council will consider modifying its permit-application process Monday. Under the proposed changes, markets of all sizes would have to apply for a conditional-use permit if they want to sell alcohol. Only "small" markets, those 20,000 square feet or less, now have to apply for such permits, according to a staff report.

Veronica Ruiz and her father, Mario Ruiz, wanted to open a shop on their vacant property to repair cars and turn a profit. Instead, they were accused of trying to destroy one of the city's oldest neighborhoods. The showdown, which took place almost two years ago, typifies an ongoing debate over whether the Logan neighborhood in northwest Santa Ana should be for homes or industry.

Art studios, theaters and live-work spaces will be allowed in more areas of downtown under plans approved this month by the City Council to expand the Artists Village. The village consists of a small number of private and public buildings near Broadway and 2nd streets, and city officials believe that altering the zoning laws in nearby areas will help expand it. The existing Artists Village area is bordered by 1st, 3rd and Main streets and Broadway.

Trendy shopping districts like Melrose Avenue and Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Los Angeles County could be the models for the South Main Street area, city officials said. Those retail areas are characterized in part by avant-garde specialty clothing stores. South Main in Santa Ana already includes clothing stores and other small businesses such as hairdressers and real estate offices.
