Promoting businesses from real estate to pizza parlors to bellybutton piercing, the ads are usually posted on utility poles or on the sides of buildings. They are quick and free--but illegal--advertising for small businesses or upcoming events. But to Sherman Oaks residents, the signs have become a nuisance--to the extent they want to take action themselves.

The Sherman Oaks Homeowners Assn. hadn't seen a turnout like this in years. A crowd of about 500 was packed into the Dixie Canyon Elementary School auditorium, but not to discuss the usual issues, like zoning, development or politics. The topic of the night Wednesday was fear. "We haven't had a turnout like this since the days of Proposition 13!" said the association's longtime president, Richard Close. The guest was Los Angeles Police Chief Willie L.

If the luxury homes recently proposed for Deervale Canyon in the Santa Monica Mountains are ever built, they will have a commanding view of the San Fernando Valley. But a dim view is being taken of the plan by neighbors, who say the 80-acre project will ruin a scenic ridge that should be preserved as parkland. The developer, Shawbeth Inc. of Glendale, wants to build a gated 24-home community that would be the largest hillside development in Sherman Oaks in six years.

Bowing to pressure from an influential Sherman Oaks homeowners group and local politicians, state officials announced Wednesday that they will move a parole office they had opened there less than one month ago. Opponents had argued that opening the parole office in a building at 5121 Van Nuys Blvd., directly across the street from a park, is a violation of the state Corrections Department's own guidelines.
