The Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday asked postal authorities to remove a final impediment blocking a bid by residents of the 80-block Chandler Estates community to be fully recognized as part of Sherman Oaks, not Van Nuys. But some council members also questioned the wisdom of the name-change fever that swept the San Fernando Valley last year--leaving parts of North Hollywood re-christened as Valley Village and erasing Sepulveda from the map in favor of North Hills.

Yet another group of Valley residents is petitioning for a new neighborhood name, but this time the petitioners say the idea wasn't really theirs. "It's not that we decided we want to become something else, we've just been ousted, albeit accidentally," North Hollywood resident Steven Cerveris said. When the community of Valley Village was formed from North Hollywood, a three-block patch of houses, including Cerveris', was not included. "We just figured it was an oversight," he said.

Sitting on a bench at Van Nuys Junior High, 12-year-old Augustine Bradley contemplated renaming her school. "If I could change the name of the school," she said, "I would name it after Christa McAuliffe," the teacher-astronaut who died in the Challenger space shuttle disaster. "A lot of people right here at this school have been dramatically changed by people like her." Augustine's wish may come true.

A group of homeowners living on the southern fringe of Van Nuys want to have their neighborhood recognized as Sherman Oaks--a community designation they say they once had, but lost decades ago when postal boundaries were drawn. Residents of the upscale Chandler Estates neighborhood, several of whom claim that old property records list their homes with a Sherman Oaks address, say they were mistakenly made part of Van Nuys when the U.S. Postal Service introduced ZIP codes in 1962.

Van Nuys Junior High School isn't in Van Nuys anymore. The school and the approximately 45-block neighborhood around it on Wednesday joined the epidemic of local name changes in the San Fernando Valley. From now on, the area--bordered by Van Nuys Boulevard on the east and the San Diego Freeway on the west, between Burbank and Magnolia boulevards--is part of Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles City Councilman Marvin Braude announced. It was at least the fifth such change in the Valley since 1986.

The epidemic of local name changes in the San Fernando Valley spread again Wednesday: Yet another portion of Van Nuys will be given to Sherman Oaks--carving Van Nuys Junior High out of its namesake neighborhood. The office of Los Angeles City Councilman Marvin Braude, who represents the area, announced that an area of about 45 blocks will be renamed. The area is bordered by Van Nuys Boulevard on the east and the San Diego Freeway on the west, between Burbank and Magnolia boulevards.

The more things change, the more they stay the same--at least in the eyes of the U.S. Postal Service. Authorized by Los Angeles City Council members, residents of several San Fernando Valley areas have changed the names of their neighborhoods, hoping to raise property values and dissociate themselves from crime and other problems tarnishing the images of their former communities.
