But around 10 years ago, The City of Anaheim decided to set less than 5% of the city as a "Resort Area" which was zoned for commercial uses (tourism). That was a decision made, and then Disney agreed to GUARANTEE bonds issued to pay for the improvements in the area, to be repaid by part of the hotel tax revenue earned in the area. So is it fair to reduce the area where this income is supposed to be produced, for one very big company (SunCal Developers) to make MILLIONS in profit just due to a zoning change?
But EVERY city decides to take certain areas and declares them commercial, shopping centers, Wal-Mart's etc. Some cities specialize in a part of town that sells Auto and other vehicles, gives them special tax breaks and spends tax dollars promoting the area.
But that is like people, you work to make money, and then have fun and relax.
Compare that to commercial areas (money making areas for cities) and then the residential and open areas (Residentioal is about a break even for most cities, and open areas is an expense for the cities). You HAVE to have commercial to pay for the open areas.....
