Southern California may soon be getting an NFL franchise. Where the team will be located remains to be seen, but the four cities
competing for the tax revenue are Pasadena, Carson, Los Angeles (downtown,) and my own hometown of Anaheim.
I don’t know if Anaheim really needs the money or the additional traffic congestion. The Disneyland resort seems to pull in quite a bit of both, and the upcoming GardenWalk project along Katella promises more of the same.
The OC Register speculates about what a football stadium could mean for the area around Angels Stadium. Either way, it’s exciting stuff! I may not give a crap about football, but I sure wouldn’t mind more money flowing into my city. The tourist revenue that we get now from Disney and the convention center helps keep my roads clean and my utility bills low!
