    Anaheim weighs more housing or pleasing Disney

    The city and parks have had a cozy relationship. But a plan for 1,500 condos and apartments in the resort area has put the two at odds.

    The clutter on the edge of neatly groomed Disneyland was such an irritant to Walt Disney that when he went to Florida to expand his kingdom four decades ago, he bought 30,000 acres of swampland, in part to shield the future resort and its visitors from such an eyesore.

    Now a proposed housing project in the midst of Anaheim's resort quarters has unearthed those ancient concerns, leaving city officials to debate which is more important: pleasing Anaheim's largest employer and biggest tourist draw or creating needed housing.

    Loomis that is an easy one - people need a place to live.
