Opponents of the controversial Ahmanson Ranch development filed a lawsuit Monday, seeking to overturn approval of a new environmental study of the 3,050-home project on the Ventura County border near Calabasas. The lawsuit, filed in Ventura County Superior Court, accuses county planning commissioners of violating the state's open-meeting law by visiting the site at separate times before their vote last month to approve the project.

Your article ("It's a Whole New Ballgame," Aug. 2) about a softball game between teams from Simi Valley and South Los Angeles was touching. This event helped to prove to residents of both communities that we are all individuals. In many ways, we are all alike. Unfortunately, such an event would be impossible in the Ventura County community of Oak Park if some of our neighbors have their way. They oppose building a softball diamond at Deerhill Park because they feel that softball players are not fit to enter our community.

A county report released this week recommends approval of a proposal to allow the Bailard Landfill to continue operating for another three years or until it reaches 3 million tons of trash. The Ventura County Planning Department report said the Ventura County Planning Commission should approve the proposal when it hears the issue today, but with a series of strict measures to reduce dust, noise and odor. Today's meeting will be held at 8:30 a.m.

Fatigued by seven hours of testimony, the Ventura County Planning Commission on Thursday delayed a vote until this morning on the $1-billion Ahmanson Ranch housing project, a proposed mini-city just west of Calabasas. Overnight, the commissioners could savor the comments of 69 witnesses, most of whom said that the 10,000 acres of public parkland included in the Ahmanson deal outweigh the environmental damage that the 3,050-dwelling project would do to the Simi Hills.

The Ventura County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved construction of the $1-billion Ahmanson Ranch housing development after deciding that the nearly 10,000 acres of public parkland included in the deal outweighs the environmental damage the mini-city could do to the Simi Hills. Most supervisors said the parkland acquisition--the largest by the state in decades--represents a unique opportunity to protect large swaths of open space forever.

The Ventura County Planning Commission on Friday urged rejection of the $1-billion Ahmanson Ranch housing project, setting the stage for a final vote next week on the mini-city proposed for the rolling hills northwest of Calabasas. "Ventura County does not want to become another Orange County, and chipping away at the borders is the way to do that," Commissioner Betty Taylor said.
