It, IV) Profiles 3 council hopei Shadeway no longer The city is trimming the sycamores along Shaclcway Road and Turnergrove Street in Lakcwood, and the residents are happy about it, though it gives the lie to their address. "The trees are growing so big they are taking over everything," says Mrs. Betty Lively of 4563 Shadeway. Dave Mills, director of community services, promises the trees will start sprouting new greenery soon. -Staff Photo by HAL LOWE Hearing on L.B. growth problems set Feb. 13 By DON BRACKENBURY Staff Writer A public hearing on a report of the Long Beach Planning Department on city population and growth has been set for Thursday, Feb. 13. at 9 a.m. by the Planning Commission. Action by the commission following the hearing would establish a "policy position," which would be submitted lo the City Council for its approval or modification, according to P l a n n i n g Director Ernest Mayer Jr. Once both the commission and the council have acted on the report, it will be u?ed as the basis for drafting the population element of the city's general plan, Mayer said. The report, first made public last October, recommends that the city adopt a policy of "moderate encouragement of growth," with a target population of -100.0(10. The 1070 population, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, was 361.321. Ellis K. "Bud" Crow, principal planner on the city staff, told the commission the population clement is not one required by state law for city or county general plans but is optional. Mayer said that copies of the staff report were distributed to various community organizations about a month ago. In" recommending that the public hearing be held Feb. 13, .Mayer said this was the earliest date possible under administrative procedures. He said the element should be adopted before Kennard, Delahousie and Gault, urban planning consultants, get far into their study and preparation of a housing element for the plan. Three more Second District aspirants to Long Beach City Council in the M a r c h 18 primary election have submitted personal and pliufutm information. They are Sharon Shen. 38, of 2618 E. First St.; Wallace E. Edgerton, 41, of 33-1 Gladys Ave., No. 205, a n d - M a r i l y n J. Fuller, 26, of 1091 Stanley Ave. - S H A R O N S H E N stressed preservation of the E a s t Long Beach a r e a ' s "unique e n v i r o n - m e n t " and charged a general unresponsiveness on the current council as she opened her campaign. Noting areas of district concern, she said Bluff Park area residents have petitioned for revision of t h e R - 5 , high-rise zone a l o n g Ocean Boulevard a n d o p p p s e d variances granted to new high-rise developments. For years, she said, atlenfion has been drawn to the need f o r r e p l a c i n g t h e o l d wooden stairs leading to the beaches and within recent years small children have died in a bluff cave- in. She said erosion control is urgently needed. She mentioned community concern about the spillover of commuter t r a f f i c o n t o residential streets due to intensive devclop- . men! along the shoreline. Mrs. Shen said she is for a growth policy which provides economic opportunities while preserving open space and the quality of existing neighborhoods. She is a member of the Sierra Club's coastal task force and was area coordinator for the Seashore Environmental A l l i a n c e petition drive to establish a strategic oil reserve off S o u t h e r n C a l i f o r n i a beaches. She said her efforts before the California C o a s t a l Commission resulted in the dedication of a 50-acre park in Pacific Terrace. After successfully working to stop further high-rise development on Ocean Boulevard she said she helped to start Beach Area Concerned Citizens. She also organized a comm u n i t y w o r k s h o p t o explain implementation of the then-new Coastal Zone Conservation Act. From experience with community organizations M r s . Shen has determined, s h e s a i d , t h a t "good community leaders h i p depends upon effective communication and sensitivity to people" and "it is extremely i m p o r - tant not to force solutions upon others." She holds a psychology degree f r o m California State University Los Angeles and has done graduate work in psychology at USC. She is married to Dr. K.Y. Shen, professor of physics at Long Beach S t a l e University. They have been married nine years and have two children. The candidate has lived in Long Beach since 1963 and in the district since 1969. - W A L L A C E E. EDGERTON, a teacher of g o v e r n m e n t a t L o n g Beach State, stressed that government and administration is his profession, not just a sideline. "My involvement as an instructor in government w i t h our university in Long Beach plus my recent involvement both as a congressional candidate a n d working w i t h t h e campaigns for our national a n d s t a t e representatives for Long Beach pro- v i d e a v a l u a b l e background," E d g e r t o n said. ""My many years as an instructor of both government and business, both here and abroad achieve the background necessary for being more effective in getting business back to Long Beach--for more jobs and the healthy tax b a s e to s u p p o r t good education, and dignity for our senior citizens, one of the tools necessary for making L o n g B e a c h a safer and cleaner place to live.
