ANAHEIM, Calif. (Dec. 16, 2019) — The Anaheim City Council will publicly consider a purchase and sale agreement for 153 acres of land around and including Angel Stadium of Anaheim at a special meeting on Dec. 20 at 2 p.m. in the Council Chambers at Anaheim City Hall.
The proposed agreement would be between the city of Anaheim and SRB Management Company LLC, a company controlled by Angels Baseball LP owner Arte Moreno.
The meeting is open to the public and all are welcome to speak before the City Council. The meeting will also be streamed live online at Anaheim.net and Anaheim TV (channel 3 for Spectrum TV customers).
Doors to the Council Chambers will open at 1 p.m. and the meeting will begin at 2 p.m. The proposed Angels agreement is the only item on the agenda for Friday’s meeting.
We expect a large attendance at the meeting, and all attendees will need to go through security screening before entering the Council Chambers, as is our protocol for every City Council meeting.
We will ensure that all who wish to address the City Council have the opportunity to do so. But to make things easier, please give yourself extra time to arrive and go through screening.
Those who are not able to attend the meeting in person can watch from home online, live or at a later time, and are also welcome to share their thoughts with the Council by emailing BigA@anaheim.net.
The proposed agreement before the City Council on Friday is the first step in a proposed three-step process, with each step being publicly considered by the City Council.
If the purchase and sale agreement is approved on Dec. 20, the City Council is expected to consider a disposition and development agreement, covering future development and community benefits, and a detailed commitment agreement with the Angels, in spring to mid-2020.
If these agreements are approved by the City Council, the next step would be the filing of a master site plan, tract maps, city and environmental review between 2021 and 2025. All three steps are necessary to finalize the larger proposal for the future of baseball in Anaheim.
