Los Angeles tourism officials are watching with a mixture of envy and fear as Anaheim gets ready to unveil a larger convention center and a revitalized tourist district that's already pulling business south to Orange County. More than $3 billion in state, city and Disney dollars have been poured into Anaheim over the last five years, funding everything from a wider freeway with sleek offramps that zip cars into the Disneyland resort to additional hotel rooms to a new companion theme park.

"The amount of damage outstripped their resources."

City officials released a study Friday showing that more than a third of the people arrested in Anaheim during a recent 60-day period admitted to being in the country illegally. The survey results may boost the city's efforts to get federal approval of a $37,000 pilot program that would place at the city jail an INS official who would have access to federal computer records to help identify a suspect's immigration status and criminal history.

In a case closely watched by firefighters and public officials across the state, Anaheim firefighters have won a 15% wage increase through binding arbitration, their first raise since 1996. Made public Friday, the decision angered city officials, who say the award is unjustified and may result in a reduction of other services. The city did win on other issues, including drug testing and personal use of e-mail at work.

The hard hats and construction signs around Disneyland will be gone soon. The new Grand Californian luxury hotel opens in January along with an entertainment zone called Downtown Disney. The new park, California Adventure, debuts in February. But the city of Anaheim, which spent $546 million on improvements, finds itself several years behind schedule in creating its vision of a world-class urban resort that would stretch beyond Walt Disney Co.'s properties.

The city of Anaheim, which invested $546 million in public improvements around Disneyland in an effort to create a world-class urban resort stretching beyond Walt Disney Co.'s properties, finds itself several years behind schedule and far short of fulfilling its goals. The city renovated its Convention Center, refurbished a two-mile area with lush landscaping and new streets and put in other improvements as Disney spent $1.

Seeking to clarify its options for new parks, the City Council delayed approval of Anaheim's $660-million annual budget for one week. Although the budget would put $5 million toward the construction of several parks and the design of several others, it excluded several council pet projects such as a skateboard park, the revamping of Pearson Park and possible acquisition of Maag Ranch in Anaheim Hills.

Mention Anaheim and many people think: Disneyland. If not the Magic Kingdom, then Edison Field, the Mighty Ducks or the Convention Center might pop to mind. What Anaheim isn't known for is the arts, or for being a mecca of fine culture. The city has no symphony, no indoor playhouse and only one small museum. "There are a lot of things we're missing," said Joyce Franklin, director of the Anaheim Museum.

Only months after eliminating jobs to balance the city's budget, officials already are projecting another multimillion-dollar budget shortfall next year in Anaheim. City Councilman Tom Daly said Tuesday that the shortfall is forecast at between $3 million and $6 million because of lagging sales tax revenue and a slowed tourist industry.

Should the Walt Disney Co. bring a hockey team to the new, $103-million Anaheim Arena by next fall, the city would be rescued from a multimillion-dollar financial obligation and the embarrassment of opening an arena with no major sporting tenant. For a financially strapped city faced with hiring freezes and budget cutbacks, the timing of the Disney announcement is fortuitous.
