DISTRICT 6 UPDATE
Beyond Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience
Dear District 6 Neighbors and Friends,

I am thrilled to announce the first event to open to the public at the Anaheim Convention Center post-pandemic.

The Beyond Van Gogh Immersive Experience will bring visitors literally inside the painter's iconic works.

Watch this video with special guest, Jay Burress, Visit Anaheim's President, and CEO to learn more about this exhibit.

The exhibit runs through the first week in September.
Veterans Cemetery Proposed for Anaheim Hills Location
Council Member Trevor O'Neil at Press Conference at Gypsum Canyon.
At our last Anaheim City Council meeting, we unanimously passed a resolution in support of bringing a Veterans Cemetery to Anaheim to benefit the thousands of Orange County veterans and their families. In fact, more than 10,000 veterans live right here in Anaheim.

The proposed location for the veterans cemetery is the county-owned Gypsum Canyon site adjacent to the 91 freeway. The site was gifted by the Irvine Company.

Previously, I participated in an event to build support for this effort organized by OC Supervisor Don Wagner, who represents Anaheim Hills as a part of the 3rd District. Also attending were OC DA Todd Spitzer and other elected officials from our region.

It’s truly an honor to be a part of something that can serve veterans and their families for generations. I’m also extremely proud that this site is within my council district, District 6 in Anaheim Hills.
Mayor Gives State of the City Address

Anaheim is entering a second Golden Age with more than $5 billion in investment planned around the city’s sports venues and theme parks, Mayor Harry Sidhu said Wednesday in his annual State of the City address.

The investment around Angel Stadium of Anaheim, Honda Center and in the Anaheim Resort will lead the city’s recovery from the coronavirus pandemic, which drove a devastating shutdown of Anaheim’s sports, entertainment, convention center and theme parks in 2020 and early 2021.

“For any city to have endured the pandemic, the economic shutdown, the closure of schools and the social isolation, yet still emerge with a future so bright, it is clear for all to see that the state of our city is strong,” Sidhu said.
The bright outlook comes after a historic pandemic and unprecedented city response spanning community and business aid and widespread testing and vaccines.

“Make no mistake. It is no accident that Anaheim is back,” Sidhu said. “Our city has played a leading role fighting coronavirus.”
