DISTRICT 6 REPORT
Anaheim welcomes back visitors to the Disneyland Resort

We are so excited to begin welcoming visitors to the Disneyland Resort. Beginning on April 30, the parks will open to limited capacity. This opening cannot come soon enough for our small businesses who depend on the resort area. And the city receives a significant source of revenue from taxes paid by visitors who stay at an Anaheim hotel, revenue that’s been reduced by more than 95 percent since the resort’s closure last year.

I join with Mayor Harry Sidhu in welcoming back our visitors to Anaheim. Mayor Sidhu authored an op-ed that appeared in the OC Register, and you can read it here. Based on the experience of Disney parks around the world which opened much sooner, I can tell you Disneyland should have been allowed to open months ago. However, onerous mandates at the state level prevented Anaheim from facilitating a safe re-opening until now.

This month’s re-opening will occur with the highest level of safety protocols and guest experience management, something nobody does better than Disney. As they say, I hope to “see ya real” soon in our resort area.
New City Manager tours District 6
We welcomed Jim Vanderpool, Anaheim’s city manager since the start of the pandemic, to a special tour of Anaheim Hills, District 6. Vanderpool comes to the city from Buena Park, where he spent the last eight years as their city manager.

Stops on the tour included the city’s Walnut Canyon reservoir and other water utility facilities, Anaheim Hills Golf Course and Oak Canyon Nature Center. We also stopped by the East Anaheim Community Center for tours conducted by our Community Services Department and Anaheim PD.

We are fortunate to have access to our parks and trails and other city facilities. I pledge as your council member to continue to devote resources to maintaining our world amenities for our Anaheim Hills families.
