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."

The controversial archeological research plan for the Hellman Ranch project was approved without fanfare by the City Council on Monday night, moving the residential and golf course development a step closer to reality. The archeological research design outlines the methods to be used in surveying and excavating the 231-acre site. Earlier reports indicate that Native American burial and village sites could be buried under the vacant land.

Bixby Ranch Co. has reached an agreement with the city on a plan that would save a popular seven-acre tennis club. Earlier this year, Bixby had put up for sale about 23 acres of property including the club, which is zoned for commercial use. The Old Ranch Tennis Club is considered a community center by residents of the nearby College Park East neighborhood.
