ANAHEIM : Public Meetings to Address Mall Plans

Residents and merchants interested in the city's plans to redevelop the Anaheim Plaza area will have a chance to express their concerns at two public meetings this week.

Residents can offer their comments to city officials during a 10 a.m. public hearing Wednesday at City Council chambers.

Questions on the draft environmental impact report for the mall's renovation will be answered, but officials say the hearing is intended for public comment on the proposal. Written comments on the report will be accepted through April 5.

In addition, a Chamber of Commerce task force will offer a question-and-answer session to help explain the proposal Thursday at 4 p.m. The task force of more than 50 business people and interested residents meets monthly.

There is no public workshop Thursday at the Brookhurst Community Center.

City planners hope to reach a decision on the 350-acre proposal by June 12. The project involves revamping the tattered Anaheim Plaza and the industrial area to the south of it.
