The Planning Commission will take up the issue tonight. The ensuing debate is likely to echo several recent controversies that have pitted Main Street merchants against neighborhood residents who want to safeguard the area's quiet ambience.

Bowing to the protests of residents, the Planning Commission this week rejected a proposal to transform a vacant 68-year-old building into a pizza parlor. The 3-2 vote came after the commission heard from supporters and opponents of the plan at a commission meeting Wednesday night. The Bichsel Co., which seeks to refurbish one of the oldest buildings on Main Street into a branch of the B.J.'s Chicago Pizzeria chain, could appeal the commission ruling to the City Council.

Thirteen planned homes and 30 remodeling projects in Seal Beach are in limbo, city officials say, because a court commissioner ruled earlier this month that no residential building permits can be issued until the city updates its state-required plan for future housing.

Nepotism occurred when Seal Beach Police Chief William Stearns' wife got a new job without the position being posted first, the city's civil services board decided in a 3-2 vote this week.
