Mayor Richard Riordan has proposed setting aside $1 million in his 1998-99 budget for improvements at Van Nuys Civic Center. The money would add the Civic Center and the area around it to the mayor's list of "targeted neighborhoods"--areas singled out for special funding to combat blight. Canoga Park, Pacoima and North Hollywood were named targeted neighborhoods last year, and would continue to be funded next year under the mayor's proposal.

Five years after the Northridge earthquake damaged Van Nuys City Hall, Los Angeles officials said Friday that the Federal Emergency Management Agency has finally approved $6.2 million needed to restore the historic structure. The city has accepted FEMA's offer of $4.9 million for reconstruction work and $1.3 million to relocate 160 city employees during the retrofit project, according to Paul Cauley, acting city administrative officer.

The courthouse in San Fernando, damaged extensively in the January earthquake, will reopen in April, Superior Court officials said as bidding began Monday on the first phase of a multimillion-dollar rebuilding job. Officials had hoped that the four-story building would reopen by March, but problems with federal disaster officials and insurance adjusters pushed the target date back about six weeks, according to Judge Judith Ashmann, supervising judge of San Fernando Superior Court.

A City Hall committee recommended Wednesday that Los Angeles go forward with the most ambitious of several options being considered for the Van Nuys Civic Center, a plan to build a $30-million municipal service center next to the old Valley City Hall building. The proposed 135,000-square-foot building would allow city offices now scattered through the San Fernando Valley to be united under one roof, and perhaps facilitate renovation of earthquake damage to the Van Nuys City Hall.

Los Angeles City Councilman Marvin Braude said Tuesday that he has asked city officials to look into a proposal to replace Van Nuys City Hall with a new, modern civic center that would be built through a public-private partnership. Under the plan, Braude said the aging Van Nuys City Hall and adjoining buildings would be replaced with a civic center that would combine office space, a police station, movie theaters, restaurants and commercial developments.

Envisioning Van Nuys as the seat of city government in the San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles City Councilman Marvin Braude is hosting a community meeting Wednesday to discuss the future of the Van Nuys Civic Center. In particular, Braude has proposed building a single structure on Van Nuys Boulevard that would house city of Los Angeles agencies from the city attorney's office to building and safety.

About 100 employees and customers at a Department of Motor Vehicles office in Van Nuys were evacuated and 16 became ill after a mysterious "swamp water" odor wafted through the busy workplace Tuesday. The office at Vanowen Street and Kester Avenue was closed after the evacuation and will remain closed at least through today. Two employees were treated and released from a nearby hospital and 14 were treated in the parking lot of the building by paramedics. No one was hospitalized.

The seven-story Van Nuys Superior Court building has long been a San Fernando Valley landmark, a high-rise familiar to locals since 1967. Now it's gone national--as the backdrop for the scores of television reporters updating the story in the Menendez brothers murder case. The TV crews will be back for another hearing Friday in the Menendez case.
