Van Nuys Boulevard is getting spruced up. Or at least cleaned up, in an effort that Los Angeles officials hope will enhance the area's businesses and attract more customers. Until November, Department of Public Works crews will battle traffic from Victory Boulevard to Calvert Street along Van Nuys Boulevard to replace about 43 old, unhealthy and unattractive trees with new ones, said Sandy Kievman, field deputy for L.A. City Councilwoman Cindy Miscikowski, who represents the area.

If a group of Van Nuys residents and merchants have their way, Sandy Mcleod won't have to deal with dirty diapers anymore. Every morning, the 35-year-old apartment manager gets up and removes diapers, fast-food containers and other trash dumped along a two-block-long center median that splits the 7000 block of Sepulveda Boulevard. But now, a local coalition of citizens and merchants is asking the city for permission to discourage such littering by beautifying the barren dirt median with plants.

The event runs from 7 a.m. until noon and begins at Delano Park at 15100 Erwin St., where Erwin, Noble Avenue and Delano Street meet. Teams will work in an 8- to 10-square-mile area removing graffiti, picking up trash and pulling weeds.

There is good news and bad news for Van Nuys residents living alongside the San Diego Freeway. The good news is that eight years after the project was first approved, and more than three years after it was delayed because of the 1994 Northridge earthquake, funding has finally come through for a sound wall between Victory Boulevard and Sherman Way. The bad news is that construction is not likely to begin until 1999.
