“I’m looking for something that is fair and right and just,” said Councilwoman Lorri Galloway.Ã‚Â
Wow! Check out what I just found in The Register this morning! Apparently, there’s a new twist to the ongoing battle over residential housing in the Anaheim Resort District. Yesterday, the Anaheim City Council voted 3-2 to approve placing an initiative on next June’s ballot that, if passed, would require voter approval if Disney were to add a third theme park to its Disneyland Resort complex.
Already, Disney is calling “foul” on this. However, Suncal’s allies say it’s only fair that city residents have a say on whether a third Disney theme park is built. After all, Disney wants to require voter approval for any residential development in the Resort District. So what do YOU think about this latest brawl in the ongoing struggle over housing in the Anaheim Resort District?
Affordable housing advocates want homes for the working poor in Anaheim. Some neighborhood advocates want to see the Resort District prosper as a world-class tourist destination. Suncal wants to build condos in the middle of Orange County’s new urban core. Disney wants to build a new theme park and new timeshare units to complete its resort complex. So who should get what it wants here? And whose want is also what the people of Anaheim want? I want to hear what YOU have to say about this new shot fired in thr battle over Anaheim’s House of the Mouse.
So who’s right here? Who’s wrong here? And who’s offering what the city really needs? Affordable housing or timeshare lodging? Condos or theme park? Suncal or Disney? What’s best for Anaheim. Go ahead. Make my day. Fire away.
