Switching weapons in its fight to make concealed-gun permits more easily obtainable, a grass-roots chapter of the National Rifle Assn. hopes to change the permit standards statewide, one city at a time. For its first target, the East Ventura County NRA Members Council chose America's third-safest large city--conservative, gun-friendly Simi Valley. So friendly, in fact, that the city's police chief may beat the NRA to the punch.

Despite the urgings of development advisors, Simi Valley City Council members said Monday they would rather see a new shopping mall built on a vast hillside site before anything else.

With the help of the Simi Valley City Council, City Manager Mike Sedell is about to become the proud owner of two homes, at least temporarily.

Since then he has been looking for a new home in Simi Valley and trying to sell his Thousand Oaks property.

Extending its pledge to limit residential building to no more than 500 homes per year, the Simi Valley City Council voted unanimously Monday night to renew the city's slow-growth ordinance. About a dozen people attended the public hearing on the issue.

Moved by a grieving mother's crusade for the kind of safer street-crossings that could have saved her son's life, the Simi Valley City Council has agreed to install traffic signals at three crucial intersections along the Arroyo Simi Bike Path. Travis Peterson, 13, was riding his bike across Erringer Road along the popular bike path on May 5 when a car plowed into him at 40 m.p.h. He died two days later.

Tractor-trailer drivers have to park their rigs somewhere. The residents of eastern Simi Valley just wish it were not in their neighborhood, where idle semi-trailers often line the bike lanes along Los Angeles Avenue. On Monday, the Simi Valley City Council plans to discuss alternatives to the current parking scenario that, residents complained in a petition, makes the street by their front yards unsafe for bicyclists and ugly.
