The city has few friends in municipal government these days when it comes to its opposition to the planned Long Beach Freeway extension. At a South California Assn. of Governments council meeting Thursday night, no one stepped forward to support South Pasadena Councilman Paul Zee's motion to remove the proposed extension between the Foothill and San Bernardino freeways from the region's long-range transportation plan, officials said.

An independent federal agency that protects the country's historic resources delayed a decision Wednesday on whether to challenge preliminary federal approval of the much-delayed Long Beach Freeway extension through Pasadena, South Pasadena and El Sereno. The board of the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation will not decide until at least later this month whether to request the President's Council on Environment Quality to review the dispute over the proposed $1.
