Inspired by a proposed countywide measure, a group of residents plans to seek a city ballot initiative that would limit growth within Simi Valley. Organizers say about 48 residents have formed a group to promote passage of an initiative for Simi Valley similar to a countywide drive known as Save Our Agricultural Resources, or SOAR. The city measure, like SOAR, is planned for the fall ballot. Both are intended to preserve farmland and open space from encroaching development.

Simi Valley school board candidate Jim King says he should have expected some connection to be made between his surname and that of the man whose court case brought this Ventura County bedroom community notoriety. Over the weekend, a vandal pasted Rodney over King's first name on about half of his 30 campaign signs. The altered signs read, "Elect Rodney King--a proven investment in our children's future--for School Board."

Feeling pressure from a coalition of residents, the Simi Valley City Council will discuss Monday whether to let voters decide the fate of a proposed new discount store. In recent months, elected leaders and local activists have debated the potential impact of a new 151,000-square-foot Wal-Mart: Would it bring the city a flood of new sales tax dollars and new jobs? Or would its low prices put Simi Valley's small retail shops out of business?

Wal-Mart has agreed to pay for a ballot measure seeking voter approval for the retail chain's bid to build a store on a hillside overlooking the Simi Valley Freeway, officials said. Wal-Mart representatives have signed a waiver indicating their willingness to pay the $16,800 for the citywide ballot measure on the Nov. 2 special election ordered Thursday by Gov. Pete Wilson, said John Newton, a Moorpark consultant representing the Arkansas-based retailer.

Wal-Mart, which wants to build a large discount store in Simi Valley, has submitted a proposed ballot measure to let local voters decide the store's fate. But two critics have asked the city to make changes in it. The Arkansas-based retail chain, which has agreed to pay for the ballot measure, wants the city to revise its development rules so that Wal-Mart can build next to land that Simi Valley has reserved for a regional mall.
