Opposition is heating up against a proposed major expansion of the Sherman Oaks Fashion Square mall. A group of 700 residents who live near the shopping mall has distributed 700 flyers decrying the project. Tybe Drum, president of the Sherman Oaks Property Owners Assn., said that in the next week her group will be sending out another 300 flyers, which urge residents to oppose the project at a public hearing scheduled for Sept. 26.

A postcard affixed to Sandy Roberts' refrigerator with a Marilyn Monroe magnet reads "Beat Goliath." In January, when Irvine-based real estate developer Legacy Partners bought the 53-year-old Chase Knolls apartment complex with plans of leveling it to make room for a larger apartment building, the phrase became a battle cry for the 120 residents who fought to save the 260-unit complex in Sherman Oaks. "We all became Davids," said Roberts, a Chase Knolls resident.

For the second time, the city's Cultural Heritage Commission deadlocked 2 to 2 Wednesday on whether to approve the Chase Knolls Apartments as a Historical-Cultural Monument.

A city plan to acquire the controversial Deervale-Stone Canyon land long targeted by developers has gained enough momentum that development opponents now predict the owner will sell off the property for use as open space. City officials recently gave Deervale-Stone Canyon high priority on a list of projects eligible for funds from Proposition K, a county parks measure passed by voters in November. A total of $2.

A city panel deadlocked Wednesday over whether to declare the Chase Knolls Apartments a historic monument and help save tenants from eviction. After more than two hours of public testimony, City Cultural Heritage Commissioners Catherine Schick and Kaye Beckham supported the designation, which would block, at least temporarily, plans by a developer to raze the Riverside Drive complex. "I do feel that Chase Knolls is notable and does embody the modern architecture of its kind," Beckham said.

The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy and the Sherman Oaks Homeowners Assn. are looking to the November election as a possible boost to their effort to prevent the development of 79 acres of canyon land near Mulholland Drive. The groups say passage of a city ballot measure, Proposition K, would provide funding for the conservancy to declare the site of the proposed Deervale-Stone Canyon residential development as open space.

Efforts to save the Chase Knolls Apartments from the wrecking ball received a boost Monday when the chief architect for the city Cultural Heritage Commission recommended that the Sherman Oaks complex be designated a Historic-Cultural Monument. The commission is scheduled to vote Wednesday on the recommendation of staff architect Jay Oren, who concluded that the 1949-era apartment complex on Riverside Drive deserves the designation, which would make it more difficult to demolish the buildings.

In a move that has infuriated residents, the developers who want to demolish the Chase Knolls Apartments in Sherman Oaks have cut relocation payments by as much as $10,000. In a letter, Legacy Partners told residents that it could not afford the "enhanced" relocation payments it originally offered. Instead, the company intends to spend the money to bankroll its fight to stop the city from declaring the complex a historic monument.
