Gerald A. Silver, president of Homeowners of Encino, was admonished this week by a city planning official for making comments at a public hearing that the official said were racially insensitive. On Tuesday, Silver fought back, blasting city hearing examiner Larry Friedman for misinterpreting his comments and for bringing a "racial mind-set" to Silver's testimony at the Sherman Oaks hearing.

Thank you for your informed editorial Dec. 13 on the development plans for the Sherman Oaks Galleria. Now that the developer has demonstrated a good-faith effort to ensure "neighborhood protection," the neighborhoods surrounding the Galleria are looking to the Department of Transportation and to Councilman Mike Feuer, who strongly supported the mall's development variance requests, to ensure the improvements are implemented. While bureaucracy threatens to impede these improvements, Sherman Oaks residents are continuing our grass-roots effort to ensure they are realized.

So the absentee owners of the Sherman Oaks Galleria ("Shopping For Shoppers," Sept. 13) want to increase their movie theater screens to 18. Let the city planners and the City Council keep in mind that the intersection of Sepulveda and Ventura boulevards is possibly the busiest and most congested in the Valley. Do we need more traffic to further congest and pollute this already overburdened corner? Remember when developers wanted to construct similar types of movie theaters at the corner of Hayvenhurst Avenue and Ventura Boulevard?

A city zoning official has approved eight liquor permits that would be part of a $30-million project to revamp the Sherman Oaks Galleria--two less than requested by mall management. In a report released Monday, Associate Zoning Administrator Horace E. Tramel Jr. stated that two of the eight restaurants that receive the liquor permits can serve only beer and wine. Plans for the Galleria also call for a reduction in retail space and the addition of 13 movie screens, for a total of 18.

Two influential homeowner groups oppose the Sherman Oaks Galleria's $30-million plan to renovate. The Sherman Oaks Homeowners Assn. and the Homeowners of Encino objected to the plan at an Oct. 23 public hearing, saying that the proposed theater complex expansion and the 10 proposed liquor licenses could turn the mall into a CityWalk-type attraction.

As Sherman Oaks homeowners of 37 years who attended the hearings Oct. 23 on the proposed modification of the Sherman Oaks Galleria, we want to express our dismay at the reaction of Larry Friedman, the hearing examiner, to remarks made by Gerald Silver relevant to the public safety of a remodeled facility. Silver's remarks were well-intended and realistic in light of today's world, where to attract attention is almost to court danger. It was Friedman who chose, for no apparent reason except possibly political expediency, to inject the "race card."
