On Feb. 13, I attended the meeting held at Estancia High School regarding the layout of fencing to be installed at Adams Elementary School. First, I want to commend Newport-Mesa Unified School District Supt. Fred Navarro for how well he led this sometimes-emotional meeting. The fact that there is going to be a fence installed is a done deal. All proposed layouts are basically the same across the front of the campus and will require visitors during school hours to check in through the front office before being able to come onto school property.

WHAT HAPPENED: The commission denied an application to legalize an existing 6-foot-high block wall located 2 feet from the front property line of a single-family home at 2097 Santa Ana Ave. Maria Elena Olivera, the property owner, did not get a city permit for the wall, which encloses the side and front yards. Olivera said the wall acts as a buffer for traffic noise along Santa Ana Avenue and creates a protected play area for her children, according to the staff report.

Mathis Winkler BALBOA ISLAND -- City officials still aren't convinced that a South Bay Front property owner can park his 55-foot boat off of his pier. After two failed attempts to dock the yacht parallel to the beach, Lodwrick M. Cook and his family members instead decided late last month to try berthing the boat at a perpendicular angle. Councilman Steve Bromberg, who represents Balboa Island and attended the boat's trial docking, at the time said Cook's proposal seemed to conform with city policies and could probably stay there.

Assuming that the encroachment does not involve property needed by the city for any reason, the city should offer to sell the property to the homeowner at market price. If the homeowner does not wish to purchase it, the city should enforce its rights and take the property back. For example, it should insist that the homeowner remove fences, etc. MEGAN WAGNER Newport Beach I feel like the fences should be moved at homeowners' expense, and they should be moved to their property line.

CAR STORAGE BUSINESS A Bristol Street businessman will ask the Planning Commission tonight to allow him to build a two-story car storage building without the required space from the building to the rear of the property. Property owner Dave Conant wants to demolish the existing structures at 1192 Bristol St. and build a 8,145-square-foot car storage structure. The first story of the building would hold Conant's personal car collection, according to a staff report.

Ueberroth needs to throw support to senator Your question is: "What role should Peter Ueberroth now try to play in the recall?" Ueberroth is a very astute businessman and an extraordinarily competent organizer and problem solver. His smarts are evident by his withdrawal from a situation he didn't have time to develop. Only two people in this race have the knowledge and substantive judgment to solve the overwhelming fiscal dilemma facing California -- Peter Ueberroth and state Sen. Tom McClintock.

Deirdre Newman Battle lines have been drawn in an Eastside housing tract over a proposal by a group of residents that would create special design standards for home additions. Tonight, the Planning Commission will consider the plan for the tract, which is roughly bordered by East 19th Street, Irvine Avenue, East 18th Street and Tustin Avenue. Proponents are concerned that "big box" construction is destroying the neighborhood's historical charm and blocking neighbors' views.

Reader doesn't like pink-hair comment I have just finished reading the article about Eric Bever winning a seat on the Costa Mesa City Council. I took exception to some of the reported comments made by him. I have known Katrina Foley for a good many years. I find her to be concerned and forthright in her voting on all issues big and small. If she has pink hair, I guess I did, too, when I was younger. I always was told I had golden-blond color. Shame on you, Bever.

A Newport Beach homeowner's modification permit is up for discussion at Tuesday's City Council meeting. The name might sound familiar to fans of Italian fare. When Antonio Cagnolo, owner of Antonello Ristorante at South Coast Village, recently built a covered patio area and an outdoor fireplace in the backyard of his Cliff Drive home, the fireplace did not comply with city zoning codes. He's applying for the permit to allow it to stay on the property. Newport Beach Planning Director James Campbell said the entire patio structure was initially debated, but Cagnolo agreed to reconstruct it in a conforming fashion, therefore the only structure needing relief is the fireplace because it was built on the setback — the land that edges up against the property line and is not allowed to be developed.

Deirdre Newman Prince of Peace school officials are extending an olive branch to their neighborhood by deciding to remove ficus trees along Baker Street, as neighbors have asked. These trees, one of three groves of ficus trees on the school and church property, were planted without city approval. On Dec. 8, the Planning Commission allowed the church to keep the trees along Baker Street because school officials agreed not to hold the city liable for any damages the trees may cause.

Deirdre Newman City leaders walked a tightrope Monday between the rights of property owners and the concerns of their neighbors as they worked to streamline the process for home expansions. After months of groundwork had been laid by staff and the Planning Commission, the City Council made final changes to the residential design guidelines and the residential development standards in the zoning code. When all was said and done -- about 1:30 Tuesday morning -- the result was a simpler, faster process that gives property owners the ability to build the homes they desire, with some safeguards attached to protect their neighbors.
