City Councilman Marvin Braude has reached an agreement with the Los Angeles Department of Transportation that will allow the new Smart Shuttle service to stop at Van Nuys Civic Center. "When I saw the final version of the Smart Shuttle routes, I was shocked that such a high-traffic area as the Civic Center was not considered relevant to the success of this study," Braude said this week.

Los Angeles City Councilman Joel Wachs urged city officials Tuesday to expedite land purchase negotiations with the city's Department of Water and Power to expand a parking lot at a Metrolink station in Van Nuys. The Van Nuys stop on Van Nuys Boulevard near the closed General Motors plant has parking for about 90 cars. But the Southern California Rail Authority, which will operate Metrolink commuter trains beginning Monday, requires each stop to have at least 300 cars.

The Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday unanimously voted to endorse a proposal to include Van Nuys as a full station stop on the commuter rail line scheduled to begin serving the San Fernando Valley in 1993. The Los Angeles County Transportation Commission currently is planning only two Valley stops--in Chatsworth and Burbank--on its west line running from Moorpark in Ventura County to downtown Los Angeles.

Passengers on the crowded bus looked up uneasily as uniformed Officer Mike Limon boarded and began walking slowly down the aisle. While his partner spoke with the driver, Limon carefully surveyed the bus, looking for any signs of illegal activity: drug dealing, vandalism, drinking. But all was quiet. The officers stepped off the bus and the driver was on his way again, zipping down Van Nuys Boulevard. The officers continued their journey through Van Nuys on foot.
