An environmental impact report for the controversial Bixby Ranch development proposal won conditional approval from a city panel and will move to the Seal Beach Planning Commission. The Environmental Quality Control Board's approval of the report does not mean it endorses the project, only that the document meets legal standards and will provide enough information for city officials to make a decision about the development proposal.

When a state panel last week narrowly blessed a project that would fill a piece of Seal Beach coastal wetlands for an 18-hole golf course, one onlooker remarked that the Eureka meeting room was so thick with lawyers that it felt like a courtroom. Not surprisingly, one of those lawyers spent most of a United Airlines flight home to Southern California poring over a copy of the California Coastal Act, which governs development along the state's 1,100-mile coastline.

In a move that has angered activists, a state panel is scheduled to decide the fate of the controversial Hellman Ranch development in far-off Eureka, 700 miles north of the Seal Beach wetlands that have sparked a spirited environmental tug of war. Due to a tangle of deadlines and geography, the California Coastal Commission will vote on the project the second week in September, when it convenes in the far northwest corner of the state.

The buses were to pull out of Orange County shortly after dawn today, headed for Santa Barbara and an emotional showdown over the future of one of Seal Beach's last remaining pieces of open space. Two buses were to carry project supporters prepared to tell the California Coastal Commission why it should approve the building of 70 luxury homes, an 18-hole golf course and restored wetlands at Hellman Ranch.

Citing concerns about traffic and quality-of-life issues, Los Alamitos officials plan to protest a commercial development in Seal Beach. City Council members said Monday that the proposed Bixby Old Ranch Towne Center project on Seal Beach Boulevard, north of Lampson Avenue, will worsen an already congested thoroughfare. "I am afraid we're heading for disaster," City Councilman Robert P. Wahlstrom said.

For the second meeting in a row, the City Council has voted against allowing a live broadcast of environmental board hearings on the controversial Bixby Ranch development--even though their own attorney told them the vote means nothing. "It's out of the city's hands," City Atty. Quinn Barrow said.

The future of the Hellman Ranch development, a project expected to bring an 18-hole golf course, 70 homes and dozens of acres of saltwater wetland restoration to a 231-acre parcel on Seal Beach Boulevard, could be in jeopardy. City Councilwoman Gwen Forsythe said Monday that she has been told the California Coastal Commission could deny the project because it wants more freshwater and saltwater marsh restoration on the site. The developer could not be reached for comment Tuesday.

A multimillion dollar upgrade for Main Street, including improvements to parking lots and beach areas, will begin in 1998. Mayor Marilyn Bruce Hastings said the city has earmarked $850,000 for the first phase of the $3.5 million project. "We really want to embark on the specific plan for Main Street," Hastings said. "The pier area is probably the most expensive to make attractive and draw people to it."

City Councilwoman Patty Campbell's College Park East neighbors have been talking recall since the day she took office as their representative nearly 19 months ago. With the highly controversial planned development of neighboring Bixby Ranch as the catalyst, the talk has turned to action. In mid-March, the neighborhood's 3,500 registered voters will go to the polls to vote in the city's first recall election in more than two decades.
