After weeks of negotiations, Studio City's new bookstore has won consent from a residents group to replace a five-foot-tall stucco falcon head atop an old building with a single red star. In exchange, Bookstop/Bookstar Inc. agreed to scrap plans to remove the name Studio City from two signs on a prominent column and promised not to paint green- and peach-colored stripes on the building, an old movie theater that the new owners are converting. The issue might seem trivial.

Efforts to form two more business improvement districts in the San Fernando Valley got a push forward Tuesday from the Los Angeles City Council, which approved petitions supporting the Canoga Park and Studio City zones and called for a vote of the affected property owners. If approved, these districts would join commercial corridors in Tarzana and Van Nuys in a trend toward pedestrian-friendly shopping villages maintained by fees paid by area property owners.

The Los Angeles Planning Commission is scheduled to vote today on requests by the developer of a Studio City mini-mall for exceptions to local zoning ordinances. The developer of Laurel Promenade mall, 12050 Ventura Blvd., has asked permission for more and larger signs than allowed under the Ventura Boulevard Specific Plan, which places limits on development along the 17-mile strip.

A city zoning board delayed formal action on Tuesday regarding the traffic headaches in the Laurel Promenade's parking lot, but it did send a clear message to the shopping center's developer: Something has got to be done. The Board of Zoning Appeals instructed the developer, Ira Smedra, to present a better parking plan for his shopping center in two months.

A Studio City residents association has joined the battle against a plan being considered by transportation officials to demolish a local racquet club to make room for a Metro Rail parking lot, a spokesman for the group said Tuesday. "We are definitely against putting a parking lot on the site of a highly used recreational facility," said Jack Gold, a board member of the Studio City Residents Assn. "It will just invite criminals to hang out where the cars are parked and commit robberies."

A group of Studio City residents have scored a key victory in their fight against development by persuading a City Council committee to recommend reversal of an earlier decision allowing higher and denser building. The city Planning Commission last year approved zoning that would have allowed construction of structures up to 45 feet in height and up to 10 units per lot on Tujunga Avenue between Valley Spring Lane and Woodridge Street.

City officials denied a popular mini-mall permission to serve alcohol in an open-air patio because the mall lacks sufficient parking. Albert Landini, a city zoning administrator, said the owners of the Laurel Promenade on Ventura Boulevard failed to provide enough parking spaces, more than one valet to park cars and reneged on a promise to not develop the 2,021-square-foot covered patio. "What they submitted just wasn't adequate," Landini said. "We found that some parking spaces were unusable.

A city zoning administrator on Friday granted permission for a new cabaret to open on Ventura Boulevard despite objections that the restaurant would be too noisy and create parking problems for neighbors. The planned cabaret, Pasion, situated at 12215 Ventura Boulevard--was granted a city permit to serve alcohol and food, have dancing and provide live entertainment.

The owners of a vacant Studio City bank building will seek city approval to demolish it and construct a 60,000-square-foot office complex in its place, a spokesman said. But architect Phil Terhorst said there are no immediate plans to develop the site between Laurel Grove and Vantage avenues. "Right now there are no immediate plans," said Terhorst, on behalf of the building's owner, F. O. K. Partnership. "We just want to get things approved before we go forward with any plans."

A city zoning administrator Monday conditionally approved up to 2,120 square feet of outdoor seating in which alcohol may be served at three restaurants in a Studio City mini-mall. In doing so, Zoning Administrator Albert Landini required the developer of Laurel Promenade mall to provide valet parking in the mall's above-ground parking lot and to show "good faith" in making required landscaping improvements at the mall at the corner of Ventura and Laurel Canyon boulevards.

Despite protests by nearby residents, the Los Angeles Planning Commission approved Thursday a request by the developer of a Studio City mini-mall to install more signs than are allowed under local zoning ordinances. The commission ruling allows two 6-by-10-foot signs to be installed at the recently opened Laurel Promenade at Laurel Canyon and Ventura boulevards. The Ventura Boulevard Specific Plan, which controls development along the 17-mile strip, allows for only one such sign.

A celebrated carwash may be gone, but Studio City's battle over the site where the neighborhood landmark once stood continued Monday, with opponents of development appealing on grounds of liquor and zoning laws instead of cultural memorabilia.
