Despite mild protest from some neighbors, the City Council has approved a special permit for a home off Mesa Drive to be built to the maximum allowable height of 32 feet. Residents who live on the hill above the proposed 6,400-square-foot house said that such a height would obstruct their view, thereby lowering the homes' property value by $100,000 or more. The council voted unanimously to approve the building plans. A permit is required when a home's height exceeds 25 feet.

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.

The state Forestry Department wants to designate about half of the city a "very high fire-hazard severity zone." City government, however, wants to avoid that tag, saying that it might unduly increase insurance for many homeowners. "I believe we can achieve the same result without this designation," City Manager Fred Maley told the City Council Tuesday night. "This city, in good faith, can get an exemption."

Your home can be your castle, but there may be stricter controls if you work for a living in that castle. That is the message from the City Council, which announced that it will hold a public hearing Dec. 20 on increasing city controls over home occupations. The proposed changes to an existing city ordinance would, if approved, do the following: * Limit home occupation activities to not more than 400 square feet of a person's dwelling.

Residents urged the City Council this week to reject a neighbor's proposal to build two tennis courts and a luxurious two-story house that they claim would intrude on their privacy. Because of the objections, the City Council Tuesday night postponed a decision on the tennis courts and house but gave the property owner, Thomas Q. Nicholson, permission to subdivide his 1.35-acre lot into two equal-size parcels.

A man who wants to build a mansion that would be almost 7,000 square feet and would have two two-car garages, a cabana, a billiard room and a pool on an estate-sized lot has his neighbors rankled even though they too have homes worth millions of dollars. Thomas Q. Nicholson has been trying for a year to build his four-bedroom home on his 29,000-square-foot lot.

Wilfred and Janet Roof have been given permission to build a 5-foot-tall wrought-iron fence in front of their home, defying Villa Park codes that limit fencing to 3 1/2 feet in height. City Council members unanimously voted last week to allow the fencing, saying it will add beauty to Cerro Villa Drive. The home, which has a 400-foot front yard, will soon be hidden behind an "eye-pleasing" iron fence with 6-foot-high brick pylons at 20-foot intervals, Janet Roof said.
