Disneyland Continues to Fight Rezoning

The City Council voted 3-2 late Tuesday night for a zoning change that would permit construction of condominiums inside a 2.2-square-mile area that was set aside more than a dozen years ago as a resort district. The vote came despite a Disneyland lawsuit and a possible election fight. Supporters of the City Council vote argue affordable housing is desperately needed for workers in the city's massive tourism industry. Opponents argue it would be a bad precedent to allow non-tourist uses in a district that brings in about $70 million in hotel bed taxes each year.
