An unidentified group is operating a phone bank and fraudulently calling itself "Save Our Parks," according to Debbie Cook, spokeswoman for the actual Save Our Parks citizens' organization. The real Save Our Parks was formed last year and led the effort to place an initiative on the Nov. 6 ballot. This initiative, called Measure C, would prohibit the city from selling or leasing park or beach land without a citywide vote.

The city's largest land developer got a huge tax write-off in a deal involving public-access beach land and the Pierside Village development project, according to a citizens group. The group, Huntington Beach Tomorrow, said the city allowed the Huntington Beach Co., the largest private landholder in the city, to claim a valuation of $3 million for oceanfront property previously valued at just $10,000.

A developer in Huntington Beach is being investigated for allegedly destroying the nest of a hawk, a spokesman for the state Department of Fish and Game said Tuesday. Evidence found so far indicates that the developer, David Dahl, had workmen cut down a tree with a nest that was being used by hawks, Fish and Game spokesman Curt Taucher said. Destruction of such nests is illegal. Dahl, in an interview last week, denied that his company had allowed destruction of live trees or an active bird nest.

An environmental organization claimed success Tuesday in an initiative drive to prohibit the city from selling or leasing public land unless voters agree. Debbie Cook, spokeswoman for Save Our Parks, said the initiative, if passed by voters on Nov. 6, would block city plans to lease beach-bluff land for the proposed Pierside Village restaurant project. Cook claimed that the group has gathered 16,500 signatures on initiative petitions, enough to require an election.

Debbie Cook sat outside her home Thursday in northwest Huntington Beach. On her lap were a pad and legal documents. A frown crossed her face. Despite the historic passage of a beach and parks preservation law Tuesday, she fears pro-development forces on the City Council will try to get around the voter mandate and build on beach and bluff land. "The people don't want it," she said. "Look at that vote on Tuesday. People don't want more buildings on the beach."

A major environmental ballot measure, ruled dead earlier this week for lack of signatures, has qualified after all for the Nov. 6 election, the city clerk's office said Thursday. An obscure quirk in state law, discovered only Wednesday, made the difference, city officials said. The ballot measure is a proposed City Charter amendment that would forbid the sale of park or beach land in Huntington Beach without a vote of the people.
