About 100 Orange and Villa Park residents attended the Serrano Water District meeting Wednesday night to urge water officials to drop their lawsuit against the Orange Unified School District. The water district is suing the school district to force it to sell Barham Ranch, which the districts co-own, to developer SunCal. The school district wants to use the land for an elementary school; residents want it sold to the county and preserved as a nature site. C.L. Pharris Jr.

Concerned that Barham Ranch could be sold to a developer, Villa Park and Orange activists from Save Barham Ranch requested legal assurance from the Orange Unified School District on Monday to keep the 525 acres of wilderness as open space. Activists have requested that the school board at its Feb. 10 meeting require a deed restriction as part of the purchase agreement with the water district that ensures Barham will remain permanent open space.

Aside from large yards, school fields and a narrow, mile-long green belt, Villa Park residents have no place to enjoy the outdoors in their 2.1-square-mile city. The community has no park filled with playground equipment for children, benches for lounging or paths for those who want to take a stroll. Many residents take advantage of the open space at the four schools in the city, but others feel that is not enough.

The city's budget for the coming fiscal year includes funds for two major projects: buying rights-of-way for the long-planned widening of Loma Street and adding on to the Civic Building. The City Council has reviewed the budget and has set a public hearing and vote on the proposal at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday. City Manager Fred Maley said the fiscal plan designates $100,000 for the Loma Street project and $125,000 for the Civic Building at 17855 Santiago Blvd.

Architectural Team Three has been chosen to design an addition to the Civic Building. The City Council this week awarded the contract to the Irvine firm after City Manager Fred Maley recommended it as the city staff's top choice. Four firms submitted proposals, Maley said, with Architectural Team Three's $10,250 bid being the lowest. In its fiscal 1996-97 budget, the City Council authorized $125,000 to build a 1,000-square-foot addition to the Civic Building.

Completion of storm-drain improvements is among projects that the city government will tackle in 1996, City Manager Fred Maley said. Contracting was begun last fall for drainage-related development in the northeast part of the city. That area suffered flood damage during torrential rainstorms a year ago. "These are storm-drain improvements for the gully that's behind Valley Drive," Maley said.

The council is also considering a 360-square-foot addition to the city's branch library, which adjoins City Hall in the Civic Center complex. At its Oct.

Second dwellings on residential lots will soon have to meet strict guidelines, and mobile homes will not qualify. The City Council this week gave tentative approval to an ordinance that would govern so-called second-residential buildings--small houses that state law allows homeowners to build in their back yards or on other parts of their residential lots. The state statute was enacted to ease a shortage of affordable housing.

Construction work by Pacific Bell in placing new, high-tech underground cables in part of the city is scheduled to begin in August, City Manager Fred Maley said.

The City Council said it supports local efforts to save Barham Ranch, an undeveloped 525-acre plot at the center of a dispute over whether to develop it or keep it as open space. But the council has no jurisdiction over the plot's fate. At its latest meeting, members of the council voiced their opinions on the issue after Orange and Villa Park residents made a presentation on the land.

It began as a handshake between a father and son during a Sunday night dinner. The father was a board member of a dying water district looking to sell off its half of 526 acres of prime Orange County wilderness. The son was an administrator of a local school district looking for land for future expansion.
