Call it a cop-out or call it Solomonic. At least it's a decision. After months of wrangling, Santa Monica officials have decided who will pay for the earthquake retrofitting of about 2,000 "dingbats"--boxy apartment houses that jut out over carports, seemingly suspended in midair. The cost will be shared by landlords and tenants. In May, a divided rent board passed a regulation allowing affected landlords to raise rents to the point where tenants, in effect, would be covering retrofit costs.

For Shane Walker, it was a chance to retrieve some of his fashion sketches, a piano and a surfboard. Beverly Voran wanted some shelving and a last ocean view from her fifth-floor window. Victor Alferos got his framed pictures and a still-intact bottle of scotch.

Mother Nature has done for Santa Monica landlords what 15 years of lawsuits could not: evict more than 1,000 low-rent tenants. But it's a classic Pyrrhic victory because their apartment buildings may have been lost as well. Early estimates indicate that about 100 rent-controlled apartment buildings are uninhabitable in a city that probably has the toughest rent control law in the nation.
