    More landowners want to build housing in the Resort Area

    Disney-area businesses are putting out an initiative to discourage housing as more owners line up to request residential zoning.

    ANAHEIM - Proposals to build housing are popping up around Disney's theme parks and resort officials are worried more are coming.

    At least four property owners want residential zoning in the Anaheim Resort area, while a business coalition is pushing for a ballot initiative to deter new housing in the popular tourist zone. Disney officials worry that other developers might be looking at nine parcels available in the 2.2-square-mile area where new homes are banned.

    "We are focusing on the dangerous precedent that will set very quickly for many more residential developments in the resort area," said Rob Doughty, a Disneyland Resort spokesman. "We know that there are developers waiting in the wings all ready to propose more residential."

    A city-commissioned study found that Anaheim could lose out on about $7.3 million a year in hotel taxes if hotels are not built on three sites where housing is proposed near the theme park. The same study found new hotels won't be needed for 10 to 55 years. Two drafts of the study came up with mixed conclusions about whether homes would fit in.

    The Walt Disney Co. could be stuck making up for the loss. When the city floated $510 million in bonds for resort improvements to be repaid with bed taxes, Disney agreed to make debt payments if those funds fell short.

    I can tell you that I would love to live in the resort area. Not that I can afford that but it would be pretty cool.
