The Walt Disney Co. and a developer may have reached a compromise on a fight over a housing proposal near Disney property.
The two sides met over the weekend and may ask the City Council to postpone a vote on the issue Tuesday, said Frank Elfend, a consultant for developer SunCal.
The council is scheduled Tuesday to set the date on a referendum to overturn residential zoning on the plot where SunCal wants to build 1,500 homes in the Anaheim Resort. A Disney-funded group collected enough signatures to put the item on the ballot and has also sued the city over the proposal.
The group, called Save Our Anaheim Resort, planned to urge the council to repeal its decision on residential zoning instead of setting an election date. SOAR was set to hold a picnic Saturday to rally its members in preparation for Tuesday's meeting.
Chris Lowe, Disney's governmental relations official, said Sunday that he was unaware of a compromise.
The housing debate has been among the most contentious and divisive issues that long-time residents can remember, resulting in a lawsuit, three proposed ballot measures and nationwide media attention, including a spoof on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart."
