The so-called "Anaheim Resort" gets its first share of scrutiny from the City Council on Tuesday as the ambitious $172-million revitalization plan designed to erase urban decay around Disneyland goes before a public hearing. The resort plan, which calls for a massive overhaul of the 550 acres around the theme park, is supposed to encourage development and boost tax revenue and is viewed as a pivotal complement to Disney's proposed $3-billion resort, called Westcot.

Labor disputes are casting a shadow at two Southland hotel operations at the height of the summer vacation season. At the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, the union representing workers at three Walt Disney Co.-owned hotels said Friday that it had rejected a contract offer amid a dispute over healthcare coverage. And at the historic Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles, the union representing employees demanded Friday that management negotiate a new contract to replace the agreement that expires the day the hotel fires most of its staff and closes for an 18-month renovation project.

On paper, plans to rejuvenate the area known as the Anaheim Resort look fine: lavish landscaping, wide walkways, utility lines below ground, discreet commercial signs rather than neon monstrosities (if businesses follow the official encouragement). All in all, it would be an improvement over the slightly seedy look that now exists in some of the area around Disneyland.

The battle over housing in the Anaheim Resort District lasted a tumultuous 18 months, made national headlines, split city leaders and led to threats to recall council members who backed the housing. Disney spent millions lobbying against plans to build a large housing project -- some of it aimed at low-wage earners -- in the midst of the city's Resort District; Mayor Curt Pringle and a majority on the City Council took its side.

The future doesn't look much like it used to along Harbor Boulevard in Anaheim. Gone are most of the flashing neon and oversized caricatures that once marked the whimsical--some would say tacky--look of the commercial district at Disneyland's doorstep. More than a year into the city's $500-million make-over, understatement marks the new tomorrow. The wood electric poles that lined the streets are being replaced with trees and faux antique lamps. The once-dusty traffic medians sprout plants.

Amid reports that the company is wavering on its commitment to the proposed Disneyland Resort, Walt Disney Co. officials Thursday assured a group of supporters that they will continue to push ahead on the project and urged them to turn out for all public hearings on the resort in the months ahead. "We are trying to make this happen for the community," said Ronald K. Dominguez, executive vice president of Walt Disney Attractions. "We're taking a very active role. . . .

After six years of stops and starts, developers will begin knocking down buildings this month to make way for Anaheim GardenWalk, an ambitious, $600-million project that promises four upscale hotels, an aquarium, shops and a slate of popular restaurants--all near Disneyland and the renovated Convention Center.

In announcing her withdrawal of support for a controversial housing project near Disneyland this week, Lucille Kring hopes her reversal will bring a little peace and tranquillity to a city that has endured nearly a year of turmoil. After all, it was Kring's tiebreaking vote seven months ago that sparked a ballot initiative and escalated what had been a civil discussion about the future of the Resort District into a near civil war in Orange County's second-largest city.

Since California Adventure made its debut six years ago, billed as Disneyland's hipper, edgier younger sibling, the entertainment colossus founded by Walt Disney has wandered far from the Orange County city where he launched his first park in 1955.

Lucille Kring has been on the Anaheim City Council only since December, but so much for the honeymoon period. Already, recriminations, second-guessing and anger. In five short months she's found herself just where she says she doesn't like to be -- in the middle of controversy. And not only does she not relish the looming combat; she says it can be avoided with a little statesmanship. One suspects the lady is overly optimistic.

A plan to build 1,500 homes on the outskirts of Anaheim's resort district began quietly last June at a weekday planning meeting at City Hall. Three people attended, two of them representing the developer. Things have gotten much noisier since then. Hundreds of people are expected to attend Tuesday night's City Council meeting, where the project is scheduled to be voted on.

Keeping up a full-court press, Disney and tourism officials announced plans Monday to seek a citywide vote to block developers from building homes in Anaheim's resort district. The election plan is the latest in a series of aggressive steps the entertainment giant has taken to prevent a 1,500-unit condo-apartment complex, and others like it, from taking shape near Disneyland and California Adventure.

Business owners in the Anaheim resort district have repeatedly heard about the grand plans for the 20-acre plot near Disneyland: a trio of luxury hotels, an array of high-end restaurants and shops, and a massive parking structure. So excuse them if they're just a little skeptical when officials say construction on the GardenWalk project could begin as early as May if the City Council approves updated plans March 28.

A new set of developers has taken over the long-stalled Anaheim GardenWalk, a key component to the revitalization of the city's resort district. The proposed 19-acre retail, entertainment and hotel complex, first pitched about 10 years ago, today is a fenced lot. The new property owners, Pacific Coast Capital Partners, promise to begin construction by the end of the year, with the first phase of retail businesses opening by June 2007.

More than 300 Disneyland Resort hotel workers and their supporters marched to the park's main entrance Thursday to protest the company's management practices and to set the stage for a potentially contentious round of labor negotiations scheduled to begin in January.
