They've been called pimples, bumps, atrocities and doghouses, but whatever their name, covered roof-access structures caused a stir in the Seal Beach City Council chambers this week. A doghouse, as it applies to residences in Seal Beach, is a structure that encloses the top of an interior staircase that leads to an exterior rooftop deck. At issue Tuesday was whether to allow James Mastick to build such a structure on his Ocean Avenue home.

The City Council approved 3 to 2 a zone change ordinance Monday that will allow bed and breakfasts along a downtown section of 7th Street. Shawn Boyd, who was one of two council members voting against the ordinance, said the council will look at revisions to the zone change at the next City Council meeting.

The Planning Commission originally balked at the request of Nip 'N Stuff liquor store to move across from its Main Street location.

Almost five years after the 30-foot high observation dome was erected on top of Mark Thompson's Sandpiper Drive home, it came down. A contractor hired by Thompson removed the metal dome Monday, ending a long debate about height limits and community aesthetics initiated by next-door neighbor Jerry Andersen. "I've had any number of people tell me over the years that I'd have to live with it," Andersen said. "I feel vindicated."

The city attorney on Monday filed a complaint in Orange County Superior Court against the owners of the "dome house," seeking demolition of the 30-foot observatory dome built atop their Sandpiper Drive home in 1990.

A preschool operator presented city officials with a petition Monday asking for permission to keep a trailer in the alley behind the preschool on Seal Beach Boulevard. Seretta Fielding presented the City Council with 45 signatures from parents of her preschoolers requesting a reprieve for the trailer, which she parked in the alley six years ago as a temporary way to cope with high winds and provide privacy. The council decided in July that Fielding must move the trailer to comply with codes.

In a decision being closely watched by both Old Town residents and merchants, the City Council is to act tonight on a plan to bring a trendy pizzeria to Main Street. The vote comes two months after the Planning Commission rejected the Bichsel Co.'s proposal to open a branch of B.J.'s Chicago Pizzeria in a 65-year-old brick building. Residents who live near Main Street criticized the plan for not offering enough parking spaces for customers.

An attempt to restrict the hours of the planned Hennessey's Tavern Grill on Main Street failed Monday night. Donald Shoemaker, pastor of Grace Community Church near the restaurant, had asked the City Council to have Hennessey's close at 11 p.m. instead of 1 a.m., among other changes to its permit. The council denied his request but required that the outdoor patio area be sealed off by 9 p.m. and shortened the length of the bar.

Demolition of a controversial 30-foot observatory dome is supposed to begin today, work that the City Council ordered more than a year ago. The city had been assured that the dome would be removed by last week, but homeowner Mark Thompson blamed the delay on a conflict in his contractor's schedule. The city filed a lawsuit on Nov. 28 in Orange County Superior Court against Mark and Elizabeth Thompson, seeking demolition of the metal dome built on top of their Sandpiper Drive home in 1990.
