AT ISSUE: City officials want to move Burlington Coat Factory and Wards from the Huntington Center to an unknown area of the city. I feel that I must express my feeling on the decision regarding our Huntington Center ("Council OKs glitzy Huntington Center plan," Oct. 5). To invest our community's tax dollars in an unproven and, in my opinion, reasonably risky development plan is not in the best interest of the voters and taxpayers. I am sure that our whole community would like to see Huntington Center redeveloped into a shopping complex that not only would be a good tax producer, but also an area that all of Huntington Beach could be proud of. It would seem logical, since the City Council seems determined to invest our tax dollars in this project, to protect our investment and build on a proven financially stable base.

Bryce Alderton After years of broken plans and bankrupt businesses, efforts to revamp the 30-year-old Huntington Center at Beach Boulevard and Edinger Avenue and build an upscale, open-air mall are moving forward once again. Project planners are currently working on site design plans to convert the rundown mall into an entertainment and shopping center that will afford visitors the chance to enjoy the cool ocean breezes and the warm sunshine the city offers.

Tariq Malik HUNTINGTON BEACH -- Burlington Coat Factory officials have asked two City Council members to abstain from voting on an upcoming eminent domain hearing regarding the Huntington Center because of a possible conflict of interest. Tom Harman and Pam Julien -- who ran successfully for state Assembly and City Council, respectively -- received campaign contributions totaling more than $3,000 from Irvine-based developer Ezralow Retail Property LLC last month.

Kenneth Ma HUNTINGTON BEACH -- Nearly 500 signatures have been collected by Burlington Coat Factory in its attempt to stay on as a tenant at the soon-to-be-redeveloped Huntington Center. The company placed a full-page advertisement in the Independent July 6 asking people to sign a petition at its Huntington Beach store and to call members of the City Council, Planning Commission and city staff to support Burlington's efforts to be part of the new mall, which will be renamed The Crossings at Huntington.

Bryce Alderton Design plans are in the final stages for the much anticipated redevelopment of the Huntington Center Mall into an Italian outdoor entertainment center. Every two weeks since October, Huntington Beach Planning Director Howard Zelefsky has met with architects from The Jerde Partnership and co-developers at The J.H. Snyder Co. and The Ezralow Co., in hopes of getting mall plans approved by April. "We're going layer by layer and it's in the last stage of design of the site," Zelefsky said.

Eron Ben-Yehuda HUNTINGTON BEACH -- One of the few remaining retailers at the Huntington Beach Mall has threatened to file a lawsuit against the developer, which is helping to delay the much-anticipated renovation of the beleaguered shopping center. As a tenant since 1995, Burlington Coat Factory wants to be a part of the developer's new vision for the aging center at the corner of Edinger Avenue and Beach Boulevard, said Aviv Tuchman, the company's attorney.

Kenneth Ma HUNTINGTON BEACH -- The city's move to place the redevelopment of the Huntington Beach Mall under its wing has a local department store crying foul. Earlier this month, the city joined its Redevelopment Agency as an applicant for the specific plan of the Crossings at Huntington, which is being developed by Ezralow Retail Properties LLC. The specific plan, approved Tuesday by the Planning Commission, is a detailed zoning plan that is necessary for the project to move forward.

Tariq Malik HUNTINGTON BEACH -- The city will not use eminent domain to remove two businesses from Huntington Center to make way for a new upscale shopping destination, though the decision was far from unanimous. With a 3-3 vote Monday, the City Council was deadlocked over the idea of using the city's power to oust Burlington Coat Factory and Wards from the 30-year-old Huntington Center at Beach Boulevard and Edinger Avenue. Council members Ralph Bauer, Shirley Dettloff and Tom Harman approved of the use of eminent domain, while Councilwoman Pam Julien and Councilmen Peter Green and Dave Sullivan dissented.

Does the Independent have integrity and credibility? That's the question raised by a number of letters to the editor in response to the paper's editorial concerning the litigation surrounding the Bolsa Chica mesa and the simultaneous printing of letters in response to my earlier column on the same subject. The letters to the editor disagreed with my view and implicitly supported the opinion of my editors. In my column, written a week before the editorial, I argued that notwithstanding the environmental importance of the mesa to the community, the California Coastal Commission's determination prohibiting the owners, Signal Landmark and Hearthside Homes, from building homes on 140 acres and requiring that the acreage be maintained as a conservation area, entitled the owners to compensation.

In last week's editorial in the Independent, my editors argued that Wards and Burlington Coat Factory "deserved" to stay at the rejuvenated mall, soon to be called The Crossings at Huntington. While I recognize that I'm biting the hand that feeds me, I must say that I find their reasoning both troubling and fuzzy headed. My editors claim that both of these retailers "deserve" to stay for various reasons, among which are that Wards remained at the mall during the "dark times," when other tenants abandoned the mall.
