Keep The Angels in Anaheim!

Dear Mayor Harry Sidhu and Members of the Anaheim City Council,

Last week, the Anaheim City Council took an historic opportunity vote to keep the Angels in Anaheim for decades, unlock the untapped economic potential of the Angel Stadium site, and generate tens of thousands of good jobs and hundreds of millions to fund vital public services.

On October 6, I urge you to bring this agreement across the finish line and vote “yes” on Item 19.

The Angels are an integral and valued part of our community. The people of Anaheim want the Angels to stay, and this agreement keeps them here until at least 2050.

Selling the stadium site to SRB Management at the appraised, fair market value of $320 million in cash and city-requested community benefits, gets the city out of the stadium business. The financial burden for a new or renovated stadium will rest on Arte Moreno – no taxpayer subsidies.

Development as an exciting mixed-use destination of residential, office, entertainment, retail and hotels will finally tap the full economic potential of the stadium site - generating tens of thousands of good-paying jobs and more than a billion in tax revenues over the next 30 years.

It will also bring much needed housing development, including 777 affordable housing units – most of which will be targeted to low and very-low income families. Also, SRB commits to building and maintaining a 7-acre flagship park above and beyond he minimum park requirements and payment of millions in park fees to the city.

This agreement is a win-win for Anaheim and the Angels. Please vote “Yes”

Sincerely,

%%your signature%%
