Among factors most of us will never have to deal with when landscaping our gardens: a cliff-side locale and millions of yearly visitors. No wonder Kathleen Garcia had "dreams and nightmares both" over her work on Santa Monica's BIG (Beach Improvement Group) project.

A proposal by Santa Monica City Councilman Kelly Olsen to close city parks from midnight until 5 a.m. is meeting with stiff opposition from homeless people, who say it is aimed at evicting them from the only place they have to sleep. Olsen said the park closures are necessary to curb rampant drug dealing that led to 502 narcotics arrests last year in Palisades Park alone.

The city of Santa Monica is accepting proposals from organizations interested in youth programming at the historical Miles Memorial Playhouse, which has been closed since the 1994 Northridge earthquake. Depending on the nature of the proposals, the city will lease the facility or continue operating it, said Barbara Stinchfield, director of the city's Community and Cultural Services. "There are very few facilities of this size available."

After years of pleading for more park space for their canines, dog owners in Santa Monica have won City Council approval for a new temporary off-leash dog park and for longer hours at the existing dog park. The council's unanimous decision leaves the city's dog owners with fenced-in areas at two municipal parks where, temporarily at least, owners can let their dogs run free. The new hours for the popular off-leash dog areas--at Joslyn Park and now tiny Pacific Park--extend from 7:30 a.m.

City Hall in Santa Monica was swamped with calls Tuesday from more than 150 people eager to register for the city's new computer network.

Clients of a senior center whose original site was destroyed in the Northridge earthquake celebrated the opening of a new site Tuesday. The January 1994 quake forced the WISE Senior Services Adult Day Care program out of its facility at 15th Street and Wilshire Boulevard, said Maria Arechaederra, executive director of WISE Senior Services. After operating in Santa Monica's Ken Edwards Center for nearly four years, the program has moved to a city-owned building in Memorial Park on 14th Street.

Teenage in-line skaters lobbying for a public place to skate in Santa Monica are celebrating city plans to build a temporary skating park. Sparked by the city's removal in June of an 18-foot-long staircase handrail that some youths used for skate tricks at Douglas Park, the teenagers' campaign for a permanent skating park got a boost with the city's announcement last week that it plans to build a temporary one.

There is a small but significant hurdle that stands between many homeless people and the jobs that would help them get off the street. Don Paschal, who was formerly homeless, puts it this way: "Let's face it--who's going to hire someone who smells?" In Santa Monica, a possible solution arrived last week. It is called Shwashlock. The new facility at 505 W. Olympic Blvd. consists of several trailers on a downtown lot.

Mitch Kato threads his way through the Saturday night crowd on the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, past a bare-chested escape artist and a banjo player, past twinkling movie marquees and tinkling wine glasses. Enticing aromas of pizza and espresso mingle with the sea breeze, but Kato's attention is on the sound of the place--the happy hum of people at play. As he zigzags down the Promenade, he is hugged and thumped on the back. Everyone is glad to see Mitch.

The knot of people gathered in the West Los Angeles park chatted amiably in the waning sunshine, leashes in hand, as more than two dozen dogs raced and tumbled over each other on a carpet of grass. When strangers approached on a recent afternoon, the dog owners eyed them warily: Were they animal control police come to ticket scofflaws flouting leash laws? They weren't, but it started them debating again--should they push to make it legal for their pooches to romp sans leash.
