Stadium plan: delay in state agreement, federal review, Anaheim statement

Big A

ANAHEIM, Calif. (May 16, 2022) — An agreement between Anaheim and the state of California is being delayed at the request of the California Attorney General’s Office based on a federal review related to the proposed sale of Angel Stadium of Anaheim site.

 

The federal review focuses on Anaheim Mayor Harry Sidhu and a former Anaheim Chamber Commerce employee. It does not focus on the city’s process for the stadium plan since 2019.

 

Anaheim released the following statements: 

 

“We are troubled by this,” Anaheim City Manager Jim Vanderpool said. “Throughout this process, Anaheim staff and the City Council have worked in good faith on a proposal that offered benefits for our community. What has been shared with us was unknown to the city administration before today, and what is being described falls outside of the city’s process on the stadium. We will continue to evaluate what this means and how to move forward in the best interest of our city.”

 

“We are surprised and dismayed by what has been shared with us,” said Mike Lyster, spokesman for the city of Anaheim. “We take this matter and the issues raised seriously. While allegations, they are troubling nonetheless. As we look to see this process play out, we will determine what this means for the stadium plan in the days ahead.”
