As they see it, residents of an Aliso Viejo neighborhood have a choice: They can be annexed by Laguna Hills at the end of the month or they can protest the move and join their neighbors in the community's planned incorporation next year. They're only half right. Without resistance from residents, the 150-acre residential neighborhood will become part of Laguna Hills in three weeks. But if their petition drive succeeds, they won't automatically shift back into Aliso Viejo.

First, the guy with the pet alligators landed in hot water with the city. Now it's Rebecca Apodaca, who has a bad hip and fixes trombones. For almost 20 years, both toiled away unnoticed and undisturbed by government interlopers. It was one of the perks of living in the unincorporated Laguna Terrace neighborhood in south Orange County--a little patch of the suburban frontier. Then the city folks came calling.

To a round of applause from residents of Aliso Viejo, the Laguna Hills City Council on Thursday unanimously approved annexation of 150 acres of the community. "We're looking forward to becoming full-fledged citizens of Laguna Hills," said resident David Woodward, who called the vote a victory for his neighborhood of Indian Hills. Two-year resident Sherry Bendall was the only person from the area who spoke out Thursday against annexation.

The Board of Supervisors on Tuesday is expected to give final approval to a plan by Laguna Hills to annex a 1.5-square-mile unincorporated community to the north of the city. City and county representatives last week completed negotiations on the annexation, which Laguna Hills officials have sought for four years. Most of the negotiations dealt with the legal wording of the agreement and on how the two government entities would divide tax revenue from the area, known as North Laguna Hills.

In what could open the door for city land mergers throughout the county, the Local Agency Formation Commission here Wednesday approved the annexation of north Laguna Hills to the city of Laguna Hills. Afterward, jubilant city officials said that without the bankruptcy prompting the county to downsize, the annexation would have been far more difficult. "I hate to say there was a silver lining in the bankruptcy, but there sure was for Laguna Hills," Councilwoman Cindy Greengold said.
