BRIEFLY : ENTERPRISE ZONE EXPANSION SOUGHT.

Seeking to expand development, the Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday asked the state to approve increasing the size of the Northeast Valley Enterprise Zone.

The council asked that the zone be enlarged by 15 percent to include the areas around the Panorama Towers and San Fernando Road in Sun Valley.

Under the program, businesses that locate within an enterprise zone and hire local residents are eligible for tax breaks.

Burbank to appeal decision on airport

With no end in sight for the legal battle over Burbank Airport's expansion, the city of Burbank announced Wednesday that it will appeal a judge's ruling that the city forfeited its veto power over the new terminal project.

The city disputes Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Carl J. West's Feb. 11 ruling that Burbank gave up its right to review expansion when it approved the Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority's formation in the late 1970s.

Attorneys filed the appeal with the Second District Court of Appeal this week, but it may take months before the appellate court rules on West's decision, said Peter Kirsch, special counsel to the city on airport matters.

LAPD to intensify focus on recidivism

The LAPD will intensify its focus on arresting career criminals involved in violent crime, and step up efforts to reduce traffic accidents, according to an administrative order released Wednesday by Police Chief Bernard C. Parks.

The 1998 Department Initiatives report also calls for the department to continue community policing efforts, improve relationships with other agencies in the criminal justice system and improve productivity by expanding the use of modern technology.

``It's basically a guideline for our civilian and sworn personnel about what our priorities are,'' Parks told reporters at his monthly media open house.

Parks also said he is ``very pleased,'' with the mayor's proposed budget for the Los Angeles Police Department for next year, adding ``we believe it is more than adequate.''

Although City Councilwoman Laura Chick has questioned the additional cost of building the dispatch center downtown instead of in Westchester, the council granted the General Services Department authority to execute the leases.
