In the aftermath of the Northridge earthquake, opportunists seeking a fast buck descended on Santa Clarita, selling "I survived" T-shirts and other quake souvenirs from vans and car trunks. That rekindled the longstanding complaints by Santa Clarita merchants that the peddlers undercut prices because they don't have to pay rent or property taxes and often ignore licensing fees. "I think the time has come to stop being wishy-washy," said Councilwoman Jan Heidt at a recent meeting.

Standing at the intersection of Sierra Highway and Soledad Canyon Road, Assistant City Manager Ken Pulskamp looks around and doesn't like what he sees. What he sees are signs, everywhere. Billboards, posters, placards, mini-mall signs crowded with the names of multiple businesses, signs advertising hamburgers, auto repairs, dental work and yard sales. "If I asked you to count all the signs you saw right here, you'd still be here a half an hour from now," Pulskamp said.

Smoking will be banned in most workplaces and cigarette vending machines prohibited under a new city code to take effect Aug. 1. Santa Clarita City Council members adopted the tobacco control ordinance Tuesday night with a 5-0 vote, ending six months of debate about the dangers of second-hand smoke and the importance of individual rights. Advocates on both sides of the issue bombarded the council with claims and statistics ever since the issue was first raised in late 1993.

A veterans group received approval from county planners this week to serve alcohol at its new post in Canyon Country. The Los Angeles County Regional Planning Commission unanimously voted to grant an alcohol use permit Wednesday to Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6885. The permit allows the group to sell alcohol at the post it bought in October, a 2.25-acre site two miles northeast of Santa Clarita along Sierra Highway.

After a cliffhanger debate, the Santa Clarita City Council narrowly approved a tough hillside preservation ordinance opposed by developers. The council late Tuesday also unanimously rejected a developer's request to exempt a 1,000-acre parcel from a slow-growth measure on the April ballot. The votes are the latest sign of the city's increasingly cool attitude toward developers since the growth-control proposition, Measure A, was proposed more than a year ago by a citizens group.

The city of Santa Clarita should not adopt an ordinance requiring developers to hire local construction workers because such a law would be unconstitutional, according to a legal memo released Wednesday. The Feb. 4 memo was prepared by City Atty. Carl K. Newton in response to a request by Mayor Jill Klajic, who proposed the ordinance late last month.

A Santa Clarita city ordinance limiting political contributions to $250 per person has been replaced by one containing modifications to conform with court rulings on campaign financing. The revisions adopted by the City Council in a 4-0 vote Tuesday night limit contributions and loans to candidates to $250 per person for the duration of an election campaign, rather than for a fiscal year, as stated in the previous ordinance.

The Santa Clarita City Council has approved a resolution limiting the duration of development agreements with builders. Most of the agreements would be limited to seven years. But under the resolution approved Tuesday, the council will have the flexibility to extend the length of the agreements, which guarantee that long-term commercial and residential projects can be completed even if growth-control measures and new development standards are enacted later.

Customers buying sod from Green Landscape Nursery in Saugus may tire of the refrain, but nursery owner Richard Green says the advice he plants in their minds is solid. "When people buy sod, I tell the people to keep it wet, wet, wet . . . and when they're walking out the door I tell them to keep it wet, wet, wet," Green said Friday. "I tell them to water it four to five times a day throughout the day . . . and on a day like today that is absolutely required . . . or else you'll lose it."

Clasping his hands behind his back as if handcuffed, day laborer Jose Trigoros pretended he was being arrested while his companions--waiting on a Newhall street corner for someone to stop and hire them--broke out laughing. Trigoros, 51, was reacting to news that the city of Santa Clarita will begin issuing $250 fines Thursday to anyone soliciting work on city streets--and his playful pantomime reflected widespread skepticism here that the new law will have much effect.

Santa Clarita city officials and county sheriff's deputies hope a new city ordinance designed to cut down on truancy has an additional payoff--reducing the increasing number of daytime burglaries. Statistics have not been calculated, but there is evidence that many daytime burglaries are committed by truant students, said sheriff's Sgt. Lee White.

More than 250 angry mobile home owners, many of them senior citizens, packed City Hall Tuesday night to voice their opposition to a proposed suspension of rent control in mobile home parks. One after another, the mobile homeowners pleaded to the City Council to keep rent control in place, even though current city law calls for controls to be lifted now that the vacancy rate in the parks has risen above 5%.

This city, long opposed to sex-oriented businesses, is on the alert again, this time with residents objecting to a store that will sell adult videos and magazines next to a children's dance studio. Mature World, a novelty store expected to devote half of its space to erotic material, is scheduled to open Monday in a small shopping center on San Fernando Road.

Peddlers and solicitors operating here without proper permits will soon face fines of up to $1,000 under a new ordinance adopted by the City Council. The ordinance, approved by a 5-0 vote Tuesday night and set to take effect in 30 days, updates looser restrictions taken over from Los Angeles County when the city incorporated in 1987. Vendors have been appearing door-to-door and along roadsides in Santa Clarita with greater frequency during the last year, city officials said.

Santa Clarita slow-growth proponents, complaining that a growth-management plan the city adopted last month is too lenient, have set their sights on the April ballot for an initiative that would impose stricter controls. Unlike the city's plan, which sets no numerical cap on growth, the initiative would allow only 475 new housing units in the city each year.

Despite the plummeting rate of water conservation, the Santa Clarita City Council delayed action Tuesday on a proposal to ban planting of new lawns during the summer. Citing concerns that the ban would unfairly penalize the nursery and landscaping industry without attacking water waste, the council voted unanimously to send the proposal back to its newly formed drought committee, which had recommended a moratorium on new lawns from June through September.

Don't be surprised if the price of amber-tinted sunglasses, large ceramic vases and Oriental-style throw rugs begins to go up here. These are just some of the products sold along Santa Clarita's roadsides, where vendors will soon face stricter licensing requirements and stiff fines for failure to obtain a city permit to peddle their wares.

Workers taking cigarette breaks here will have to go outside beginning Monday when the city's new smoking law goes into effect. The hotly debated tobacco control ordinance, approved by the Santa Clarita City Council in June, bans smoking at most indoor job sites. It also prohibits cigarette vending machines in the workplace. But restaurants, bars and small businesses were given some leeway under the new law.
