CITY OF ANAHEIM AWARDED FOR ‘TURNING RED TAPE INTO RED CARPET’

ANAHEIM, Calif. (November 24, 2014) The Orange County Business Council announced the winners of the 4th Annual Turning Red Tape into Red Carpet awards with the City of Anaheim garnering two recognitions at a reception at the Irvine Marriot on Sunday night. The awards program was developed to recognize leaders, policies, and programs in local government that eliminate barriers in economic growth and private sector jobs creation.

Anaheim received “The Award for Public-Private Partnership” for the establishment of the “the World Class Partnership” process. With its long history of completing large-scale construction projects to facilitate the millions of people that travel to and from the area, Anaheim developed this process to improve quality and efficiency to avoid re-occurring themes that negatively impacted the success of such projects. The process was applied to the $76 million Gene Autry Way Overpass Project in 2011 and is currently being used for the completion of ARTIC and the Anaheim Convention Center expansion. It has resulted in over $24 million in savings for taxpayers on its first project alone. Read more…

Anaheim Convention Center Expansion Project To Break Ground Early 2015

Published on November 24, 2014 by in News

By Matt Valdez

A message from the City of Anaheim:

The Anaheim Convention Center, LEED certified and the largest exhibition center on the west coast, will soon begin its seventh expansion project, furthering the Center’s standing as the preferred location for world-class meetings, events and conventions.

The Anaheim Convention Center’s expansion project will add 200,000 square feet of leasable, flexible space for hosting concurrent events, capturing new meeting groups and retaining large annual events, in addition to the replacement of the Car Park 1 parking structure.

Located in the heart of the Anaheim Resort District, the Anaheim Convention Center is an important enterprise operation the City relies upon to support the General Fund. The Anaheim Resort District provides approximately 50% of the General Fund tax revenues, which in turn provides for vital City services such as Fire, Police, parks, libraries, and more.

It is conservatively estimated that the City’s General Fund would be better off by $115 million over the next decade and $320 million over a 30-year period by expanding, as determined by an outside consultant (Crossroads Consulting Services).

Each year the City generates millions of dollars due to the large annual events booked at the Anaheim Convention Center. Attendance over the past five years has …read more

Officials now admit that the ARTIC transit hub will lose money from day one

ARTIC

It turns out that the ARTIC transit hub might cost Anaheim residents a fortune – right from the start.  Apparently Anaheim City officials have not yet secured a corporate sponsor willing to put its name on a transit station opening Dec. 6, leading to a potential operating budget shortfall for the next seven months, according to the OC Register.

What this means is that it will cost more than $3.6 million to maintain and operate ARTIC through the end of June, but only half of that funding is secured.

The waste that is ARTIC and Measure M

The really ridiculous part of this mess is that Anaheim never needed ARTIC.  The train station at Angel Stadium was perfectly functional and user-friendly. Read more…
