ANAHEIM, CA - (September 16, 2012) - The City of Anaheim has released a draft report that analyzes the environmental impacts associated with an expansion of the Anaheim Convention Center and an update of the Anaheim Resort Specific Plan. This document, Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Report (DSEIR) No. 340, has been released for a public comment period that ends at 5 p.m. on October 29, 2012.
The Anaheim Resort Specific Plan is one of three specific plans that regulate development within the 1,085-acre Anaheim Resort, an area within the City of Anaheim generally located west of Interstate 5, south of Vermont Avenue, east of Walnut Street and north of Chapman Avenue. The Anaheim Resort Specific Plan pertains to 581 acres located to the north, east and south of The Disneyland Resort.

The proposed project, Amendment No. 14 to the Anaheim Resort Specific Plan, includes amendments to the Anaheim General Plan, Anaheim Resort Specific Plan, Anaheim Municipal Code, The Anaheim Resort Identity Program, and The Anaheim Resort Public Realm Landscape Program. These amendments are intended to allow an expansion of the Anaheim Convention Center, including additional hotel and commercial development; update and streamline development standards, guidelines and requirements; and, reduce redundancy within and between documents.
