The residents of Leisure World have passed the halfway point in their quest for a sound wall to reduce traffic noise from the San Diego Freeway. "We have hundreds of people whose lives are dramatically impacted by the noise," Seal Beach Councilman Joe Hunt said. "In certain areas of Leisure World, there's no such thing as opening your windows."

The roundabout at Fourth Street and Central Avenue recently opened, after several weeks of construction. The city built the traffic configuration to slow vehicles at the busy intersection. Residents should be aware that the signs currently posted in the area alerting drivers to the construction will be taken down after a 30-day period, Councilman Shawn Boyd said.

The city might bring back tram service on the Seal Beach Pier, once fire repairs to the landmark structure are completed later this year. City Manager Jerry L. Bankston said that the Ruby's restaurant and a charter fishing business at the end of the pier are interested in reviving the city-operated tram, which was frequently used by residents from Leisure World. The service was halted in 1991 after a fire burned the heavy wood pilings in the middle of the pier.

The City Council has decided to move ahead with a traffic signal project along Seal Beach Boulevard. The project, which calls for the replacement of some old signals and the synchronization of others, is being carried out in conjunction with the city of Los Alamitos.

Officials here on Tuesday beat the June 30 deadline to qualify for Measure M funds, which means that the city is eligible to receive more than $200,000 annually from gasoline tax revenues. The city met eligibility requirements by incorporating a growth management plan into its General Plan. The growth plan, which will ensure that further development does not surpass Seal Beach's road capacity, was adopted unanimously by the City Council.

The locals in Old Town Seal Beach, a quaint seaside community where stores and cafes really do dot a place called Main Street, face a threat to their way of life. The treasured, residents-only parking sticker may be in jeopardy. The way the California Coastal Commission sees it, the shoreline belongs to everyone. That means the right to park near enough to walk there.

It may not be paved in gold, but this is one street that's being rebuilt with the finest materials money can buy, and adorned with four different species of palms and flowering trees. It's also the block of 12th Street in Old Town on which Mayor Marilyn Bruce Hastings lives, and it's undergoing a $275,000 face lift at taxpayers' expense.

A group of residents plans to meet with City Manager Jerry L. Bankston next week to discuss whether the speed limit can be reduced along a stretch of Seal Beach Boulevard where a 12-year-old was struck and killed earlier this week. The boulevard, the main link between the San Diego Freeway and central Seal Beach, has long been viewed as a safety hazard by some residents, especially a portion that runs in front of McGaugh Elementary School and Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station housing.

The Rotary Club will begin cleaning up a stretch of Seal Beach Boulevard on a regular basis in what city officials hope will be the first of several "adopt-a-road" programs sponsored by groups in the city. The Rotary Club has taken responsibility for a roughly two-mile portion of the boulevard between Pacific Coast Highway and the San Diego Freeway. Rotary members and their families will periodically remove litter that collects along the roadway and on adjacent sidewalks.

Driving down Seal Beach Boulevard is a little bit smoother these days, thanks to a road improvement project completed this month. A three-quarter-mile portion of the road from Bolsa Avenue to the Seal Beach police station was resurfaced with more than 4,000 tons of asphalt. Workers also re-striped the street, added new reflective markers and adjusted several manhole covers and gas valves, said Greg Lindsay of Seal Beach's engineering department.
