The ARSP was adopted in 1994, encompasses 581 acres of The Anaheim Resort, and provides for the development of hotels, motels, convention and conference facilities, including the Anaheim Convention Center, as well as restaurants, retail shops, and entertainment uses. The ARSP is divided into two development areas: the Public Recreation (PR) District, which includes the Anaheim Convention Center and the Anaheim Hilton; and, the Commercial Recreation (C-R) District, which includes the remainder of the ARSP.
Environmental Impact Report No. 313 (EIR 313) was certified as the environmental documentation for the adoption of the ARSP. Two validation reports were prepared (1999 and 2004) to evaluate the continued relevance and accuracy of EIR 313. In December 2012, the Anaheim City Council certified Supplemental Environmental Impact Report No. 340 (EIR 340) in support of the approval of the Amendment No. 14 to the ARSP Project. EIR 340 reevaluated all of the environmental changes that have occurred in and around The Anaheim Resort since certification of EIR 313 in September 1994. EIR 340 analyzes the cumulative impacts associated with the entire Anaheim Resort and surrounding area, including the full build-out of the three Specific Plans. EIR 340 is a supplemental EIR that reevaluated all the environmental changes that have occurred in and around The Anaheim Resort since certification of EIR 313.
