A subdivision in Orange where an unstable hillside is threatening 30 houses was built on land previously damaged by two large landslides--a fact known to developers and city officials, but not to home buyers. In fact, the very spots where geologists 20 years ago documented those landslides were later converted into lots for more than a dozen houses, and the unstable hill now poses a threat to even more homes.

Beginning this week, the Glassell Street offramp of the westbound Garden Grove Freeway will be closed for seven months.

Crosswalks at several busy intersections and a few sharp curves along Santiago Canyon Road now will be more visible to drivers, thanks to solar-powered lights installed last week by the city. Orange is the first U.S. city to use the lights, which store solar energy during the day and emit a soft glow at night. The light, which shines from traffic reflectors embedded in the pavement, helps drivers see pedestrians using crosswalks, officials said.

The City Council postponed a decision last week on whether to raise sanitation and sewer fees because two council members were absent. Mayor Gene Beyer requested that the council delay the item, which would tack on $1.87 to the $12 monthly fee the average single-family residence now pays for the sanitation services. The proposed increase would fund the city's material recovery, tree trimming and weed abatement programs.

The City Council voted this week to move ahead with plans to build two libraries, one in cooperation with Rancho Santiago College and a long-awaited new main facility. In an unusual action taken during a study session Monday, the council voted to set aside $100,000 next year to help fund designs for a public library to be operated with Rancho Santiago College. The city will allocate the money pending negotiations with the college on operational procedures and a budget review in May.

A massive public works project that would widen about four miles of local streets received City Council approval Tuesday, but only after the most controversial elements were dropped for further study. After a two-hour hearing during which 46 speakers opposed elements of the project, the council voted to uphold a Planning Commission recommendation to study the impacts of widening residential La Veta Avenue east of Glassell Street and Glassell north of Chapman Avenue.
