Landscape Plans for Old Houses on Agenda


Landscape plans for 10 historic homes which have been moved to Atchison Street are among the items to be considered at tonight’s City Council meeting.

The plans call for decorative gateways, arbors and used brick walkways.

The homes are being rehabilitated through an agreement between the city Redevelopment Agency and the Anaheim Historic Preservation Foundation.

Also on the council agenda is a proposed agreement between the city and Caltrans for improvements on Orangewood Avenue in conjunction with the widening of the Santa Ana Freeway.


The $8.3-million project would include construction of a freeway under-crossing and storm drains.

Funding would be provided by the Orange County Transportation Authority and the cities of Anaheim and Orange.

Anaheim has Measure M funds available for the project.

Work on the freeway widening through Anaheim is scheduled to begin in December.

The freeway is being expanded from three lanes each way to five.

The council also will consider awarding a total of $40,000 to seven nonprofit agencies.

The Anaheim Family YMCA, the Anaheim Interfaith Shelter and the Ecumenical Service Alliance would each receive $10,000 under the proposal.

In addition, the city Community Services Agency would provide funds to the Anaheim Museum, the Boys and Girls Club, the Children’s Bureau and the Salvation Army’s youth outreach program.

The council meeting is scheduled for 5 p.m. at City Hall, 200 S. Anaheim Blvd.
