Five years ago tonight, 46 families fled their dream homes atop an Anaheim hill, rushing away as a landslide tore cracks through walls, split driveways and wrenched swimming pools apart. Since then, fissures and pipelines, sidewalks and sewers outside the homes along the slide have been repaired. Millions of gallons of water that had turned a 100-foot bluff into mud have been pumped out. The city has spent $8.

A plan for carrying out more than $54 million in capital improvement projects over the next seven years was approved this week by the City Council.

The city is moving forward with plans to take utility lines underneath Gilbert Street from north of Broadway to north of Lincoln Avenue. Officials said the project will beautify the neighborhoods and increase traffic safety. Construction is expected to begin in January on the $2.4-million project, which is part of a $46-million citywide plan to bury utility lines. The cost for the city-owned utilities is paid through a 4% fee on electric bills.

Aging fire hydrants and an undersized water main would be replaced, and fire safety would be improved, under a plan before the City Council on Tuesday. The project would improve the water system in an area generally bounded by Katella Avenue on the south, Gilbert Street on the west, Crestwood Lane on the north and Jean Street on the east. This low- to moderate-income neighborhood is in an unincorporated area of the county that receives water service from Anaheim.

The City Council has taken its first step toward imposing storm drain and sewer fees on new developments to help pay for a major face lift of the area around Disneyland and the Anaheim Convention Center. The onetime fees would help pay for the ambitious $172.5-million Anaheim Resort revitalization program, which is designed to eliminate urban blight in the city's major tourist area.

With the goal of making the city a world-class telecommunications center, the City Council this week unanimously voted to solicit proposals from private companies interested in developing an advanced citywide system. The key to such a system would be a 50-mile fiber-optic loop that the city is constructing. The loop will connect pump stations and electric substations for utility operations and will replace a copper line that is more than 30 years old.

Many residents of the Jeffrey-Lynne neighborhood in Anaheim have never had a reason to trust their landlords. Take the case of Juanita Sandoval, who lives in a one-bedroom apartment on Jeffrey Drive with her 4-month-old daughter, boyfriend and his family. Their apartment has hot water only intermittently. The kitchen has faulty plumbing. The bedroom window is cracked. But perhaps most astounding, occupants don't have a key to the apartment. Until Dec.

The future doesn't look much like it used to along Harbor Boulevard in Anaheim. Gone are most of the flashing neon and oversized caricatures that once marked the whimsical--some would say tacky--look of the commercial district at Disneyland's doorstep. More than a year into the city's $500-million make-over, understatement marks the new tomorrow. The wood electric poles that lined the streets are being replaced with trees and faux antique lamps. The once-dusty traffic medians sprout plants.

A town meeting will be held tonight to offer information about Recycle Anaheim, the city's curbside recycling program, which will begin citywide service next month. Residents have been mailed information on the program, but organizers said the town meeting--featuring a video presentation--would help encourage participation. The program, administered by Anaheim Disposal Inc., which handles the city's trash collection, began as a pilot plan last September at 11,000 households throughout the city.
