"Feel this paper," Stefanos Polyzoides insists, opening a brand new notebook, his favorite kind. Made in Germany by a company called Sennelier, it looks like an old-fashioned American composition book, but the cover is green and black instead of white and black. Stefanos has filled almost 30 of these notebooks with drawings and ideas and notes from places he has traveled to--internally and externally.

Architects and planners Elizabeth Moule and Stefanos Polyzoides have been among the biggest fans and supporters of downtown Los Angeles. They were the lead consultants on a widely heralded $2-million strategic plan to help revitalize the commercial core. Their firm has long been located in a historic downtown building. But now the husband-and-wife design team are preparing to do what so many other downtown employers have done before: head for the suburbs.

Re "O.C. Builders Reach Their Final Frontier," June 15: Having been born and raised in Orange County, I have come to a number of conclusions about life here: There is little pride in the beauty of the land or for the wildlife that lives on it. Landowners, especially rich ones, usually get their way, and often claim to be working for the common good. People would rather participate in over-development's miseries (traffic, pollution, lack of open space, lame public transit, scarce affordable housing)

"The long reign of the Community Redevelopment Agency ended this week--not with a bang, but with a brief reference on Page 4 of Mayor Richard Riordan's budget message," William Fulton wrote recently in this newspaper's Opinion pages. The CRA reign may indeed wind up yielding to some kind of reorganizational interregnum, but if it does it at least will go with a small bang.

It's been a year since the Trails served its last rib-eye steak, but some people still can't let it go. Others can't wait until the bulldozers arrive and the new neighbors move in. The popular restaurant, once a stop for Route 66 travelers that became a local watering hole, sits on 2 1/2 acres that is caught between parallel drives by conservationists and developers.

DEAR HOT: I love leggings, but I'm extremely conscious of my legs--they're really skinny (my brothers used to call me Olive Oyl, OK?). Is there any way I can wear leggings this fall and not look like a toothpick? --N.G., Woodland Hills DEAR N.G.: Don't despair, there's a solution that will pump up your legs without leaving you looking like Bluto. Printed leggings are expected to be all the rage this fall, and they also create an optical illusion, making your legs seem heavier.

The City Council has decided to build a new civic center on the existing City Hall site, bringing to an apparent end two years of acrimonious debate and controversy. By a 3-2 vote, the council last week approved a plan to remodel part of the current City Hall on Mission Street, erect new City Council chambers and construct buildings to replace the police and fire facilities now at Mission and Mound streets.

Beverly Hills' downtown is being prepared for a slight make-over--a nip and tuck that officials say will enhance what is one of the most lucrative shopping areas in the country. The improvements will provide the 20-block retail core with an eclectic mix of the best attributes of the small-town atmosphere of Larchmont Village, the vibrancy of the Sunset Strip and splendor of New York's Madison Avenue, proponents say.
