It seems like the kind of neighborhood dispute that might be settled over some of restaurateur Hans Rockenwagner's steamed white asparagus with prosciutto--served at the stammtisch, no less. But to think it's that simple is to underestimate the tensions of urban living, even if the locale is two blocks from the Pacific Ocean and around the corner from one of the highest-rated restaurants in the Los Angeles area. The passionate dispute centers on the Ocean Park neighborhood of Santa Monica.

Street parking in Santa Monica is such a precious commodity that the city's Chamber of Commerce is suing the city over a new 28-block parking zone that grants residents a preferential permit and restricts the number of spots open to others. The chamber filed a suit in Los Angeles Superior Court this week to stop a new parking zone along a stretch of the busy commercial corridors of Wilshire, Lincoln and Santa Monica boulevards and nearby neighborhood streets.

Santa Monica officials have published a zoning plan that calls for a special Main Street hotel district, tougher development guidelines and the rezoning of 1,500 commercial and industrial land parcels throughout the city. The "Proposed Comprehensive Land-Use and Zoning Ordinance" was released by the city this week. Suzanne Frick, Santa Monica's acting principal planner, said the proposal touches nearly all of the city's 15,000 parcels of land.

A proposed zoning amendment that could restrict land use in parts of the Santa Monica Mountains has caused confusion and outrage among owners of horse stables who say they could be put out of business if it is approved by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. But officials with the county Department of Regional Planning say that, even if the amendment passes, it probably would not affect existing property owners.

The Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce and a tenants organization are preparing their arguments for a series of City Council hearings on a proposed zoning code that would determine how every parcel in Santa Monica could be developed. The draft zoning code, which the Planning Commission and Planning Department have labored on for several years, is the first comprehensive review of city zoning since 1960.

After years of heated debate over land use in Santa Monica, the city has adopted a comprehensive Zoning Code seen as a major victory for slow-growth advocates. The 418-page document, unanimously approved by the City Council, cuts new construction by an average of 30% in many areas of Santa Monica. "This is the culminating step of an 8-year process, and I'm quite glad we've reached it," Mayor James Conn said Wednesday night after the council's vote.

Clearing up inconsistencies in Santa Monica's commercial zoning, the City Council reduced the required landscape setback for most commercial structures from a five-foot minimum to an average of 1.5 feet. The unanimously-approved ordinance, which takes effect in November, will allow developers to use more of their land while conforming to the city's land-use requirement that commercial structures be "pedestrian oriented."
