Commuters riding the Metrolink train to downtown will have to take a shuttle bus to the Van Nuys train stop for at least six months after the service begins Oct. 26 due to lack of parking space there, Los Angeles city transportation officials said Tuesday. The shuttle bus from a lot half a mile away will operate for up to a year because the city has yet to purchase land for a parking lot next to the stop, they said.

History came full circle Monday as residents, street workers and Councilwoman Cindy Miscikowski celebrated the rebirth of a round, long-abandoned traffic median in Van Nuys.

Dramatically reversing a decade of designs for the San Fernando Valley's main street, Los Angeles city planners will now support a proposal to slash the budget to beautify Ventura Boulevard and abolish the unpopular "trip fee" on boulevard property owners. Under the proposal accepted by the planners--which must be approved by the city Planning Commission and the City Council--the budget for the Ventura Boulevard Specific Plan would be cut in half.

Fresh from a $2.5 million face-lift, the Holiday Inn Express Hotel was rededicated Thursday--more than five years after it was forced to close by the 1994 Northridge earthquake. The 132-room hotel boasts several improvements over its pre-temblor predecessor, including a fitness center, three banquet halls, a marbled front desk and foyer--and 38 steel reinforcement beams, said general manager George Noumer. "Our reopening signifies to the community that we are back," Noumer said.
