Community leaders are complaining that the only public parking lot in Sherman Oaks remains a mystery to most people. The parking lot, on the corner of Dickens Street and Cedros Avenue, is on the first floor of a building that is under construction. On Sept. 13, part of the parking lot was reopened, making 60 metered parking spaces available. The lot had been closed for more than a year. But the scaffolding-shrouded entrance to the lot on Cedros gave no clue that parking was available within.

Residents here said at a community meeting this week that they want more local control over a proposed Sherman Oaks redevelopment project than it appears the city is willing to grant. State Sen. Tom Hayden (D-Santa Monica) said at a meeting of the Sherman Oaks Homeowners Assn. on Wednesday that he supports the residents' request. "My bias is not for neighborhood input but neighborhood control," Hayden said. "The law is ambiguous. You bargain for what you can get."

On the streets of Van Nuys and what once was Van Nuys, reactions to the announcement of yet another San Fernando Valley name change fell into three distinct categories Friday: A) "I don't care." B) "More money for me." C) "They changed the name??" One day after Los Angeles City Councilman Zev Yaroslavsky declared that a 40-block section of southern Van Nuys will be officially absorbed by Sherman Oaks, some Van Nuys community leaders charged the secessionists with elitism.
