Anaheim (pron-en|ˈænəhaɪm "ANNA-hime") is a city in
Orange County, California. As of January 1, 2008, the city population was about 346,823, [http://www.dof.ca.gov/research/demographic/reports/estimates/e-1_2006-07/] making it the 10th most-populated city in Californiacite web | date = May 1, 2006 | url = http://www.dof.ca.gov/HTML/DEMOGRAP/ReportsPapers/Estimates/E1/documents/e-1press.pdf | title = E-1 Population Estimates for Cities, Counties and the State with Annual Percent Change — January 1, 2005 and 2006 | format = PDF | publisher = California Department of Finance | accessmonthday=November 16 | accessyear = 2006] and ranked 54th in the United States. The city anticipates that the population will surpass 400,000 by 2014 due to rapid development in its Platinum Triangle area as well as in the affluent Anaheim Hillsarea. Anaheim is the second most populous city in Orange County (behind Santa Ana) and second largest in terms of land area, and it is known for its theme parks, sports teams, and convention center.
Founded by fifty German families in 1857 and incorporated on February 10, 1870, Anaheim developed into an industrial center, producing
electronics, aircraftparts, and canned fruit. It is the site of the Disneyland Resort, a world-famous grouping of theme parks and hotels which opened in 1955, Angel Stadium of Anaheim, Honda Center, and Anaheim Convention Center, the largest convention center on the American west coast. Its name is a blend of "Ana", after the nearby Santa Ana River, and "heim", a common German place name compound originally meaning "home".cite book|first=Erwin|last=Gudde| coauthors =William Bright |title=California Place Names|year=2004|edition=Fourth ed.|publisher=University of California Press|pages=p. 12|id=ISBN 0-520-24217-3]
Anaheim's city limits stretch from
Cypressin the west to the Riverside Countyline in the east and encompass a diverse collection of neighborhoods and communities. Anaheim Hillsis a highly wealthymaster-planned community that is home to many sports stars and executives located in the city's eastern stretches. West Anaheim is notable for its more mature neighborhoods dating from the 1950s, which comprise part of the continuous suburban sprawl extending from Los Angeles. The Anaheim Resort, a commercial district, includes Disneylandand the neighboring hotel and retail complexes. The Platinum Triangle, a neo-urban redevelopmentdistrict surrounding Angel Stadium, will soon be populated with mixed-use streets and high-rises. Finally, The Canyon is an industrial district north of the Riverside Freewayand east of the Orange Freeway.
The city of Anaheim was founded in 1857 by grape farmers and wine makers from
Franconiain Bavaria. The first such settler was Daniel Kraemer. The colony was situated on convert|1165|acre|km2. Settlers voted to call the community Annaheim, meaning "home by the Santa Ana River" in German. The name later was changed slightly, to Anaheim. To the Spanish-speaking neighbors, the settlement was known as Campo Alemán (Spanish for German Camp). The grape industry was destroyed in the 1880s by an insect pest. Other crops - walnuts, lemons, and of course oranges - soon filled the void.
The famous Polish actress
Helena Modjeskasettled in Anaheim with her husband and various friends, among them Henryk Sienkiewicz, Julian Sypniewski and Łucjan Paprocki. While living in Anaheim, Helena Modjeska became good friends with Clementine Langenberger, the second wife of [http://anaheimcolony.com/profiles.htm August Langenberger] . [http://www.anaheim.net/article.asp?id=216 Helena Street] and [http://www.anaheim.net/article.asp?id=216 Clementine Street] are named after these two ladies, and the streets are located adjacent to each other as a symbol of the strong friendship which Helena Modjeska and Clementine Lagenberger shared. [http://www.anaheim.net/article.asp?id=1171 Modjeska Park] in West Anaheim, is also named after Helena Modjeska.
In the 1920s, the
Ku Klux Klan, at the height of its influence and popularity, decided to make Anaheim a "model" Klan city. In 1924, the Klan secretly managed to get four of its members elected to the five-member Board of Trustees. Nine of the ten members of the police force were also Klansmen. The four Klan trustees served for nearly a year, until they were publicly exposed, and voted out in a recall election in which 95% of the population participated. [ [http://www.anaheimcolony.com/klan.htm The Klan In Anaheim ] ]
During the first half of the 20th century, before
Disneylandopened its doors to the public, Anaheim was a massive rural community inhabited by orange groves, and the landownerswho farmed them. One of the landowners was a man by the name of Bennett Payne Baxter. He owned much land in northeast Anaheim that today is the location of [http://www.anaheim.net/article.asp?id=235 Edison Park] . He came up with many new ideas for irrigating orange groves and shared his ideas with other landowners. He was not only successful, he helped other landowners and businesspeople succeed as well. Ben Baxter and other landowners helped to make Anaheim a thriving rural community before Disneyland changed the city forever. Today, a street runs along [http://www.anaheim.net/article.asp?id=235 Edison Park] which is named Baxter Street. Also during this time, Rudolph Boysenserved as Anaheim's first Park Superintendentfrom 1921 to 1950. Boysen created a hybrid berry which Walter Knottlater named the boysenberry, after Rudy Boysen. [http://events.ocregister.com/anaheim-ca/venues/show/30634-boysen-park Boysen Park] in East Anaheim was also named after him.
Disneylandtheme park was constructed in Anaheim from July 16, 1954 to July 17, 1955 and has since become Anaheim's largest tourist attraction. The location was formerly convert|160|acre|km2 of orange and walnut trees, some of which remain inside Disneyland property. In 2001, Disney's California Adventure, the most expansive project in the theme park's history, opened to the public.
In the late 20th century, Anaheim grew rapidly in population. Today, Anaheim has a diverse ethnic and racial composition.
During the large expansion of the Disneyland resort in the 1990s, the city of Anaheim then recognized itself as a resort epicenter, thus creating the
Anaheim Resort. It includes the Disneyland Resort, the Anaheim Convention Center, the Honda Center--home of the NHL Anaheim Ducks, and Angel Stadium, home to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The city has undergone a rigorous transformation in creating metropolitan beautification to attract tourism. In 2007, the city celebrated its sesquicentennial(150th anniversary) by opening the Anaheim Walk of Fame near the Harbor Boulevardentrance to the Disneyland Resort. The first star to be placed on the Anaheim Walk of Fame was Walt Disney, a man responsible for making Anaheim the hugely popular tourist destination it is today.
In November 2005, a few months after the
California Lotteryjoined the multi-state Mega Millionsgame, a ticket worth $315 million was sold at Rainbow Water in Anaheim, the first jackpot winner in the state for the game. The seven persons claiming the ticket chose the $180 million cash option.

Court battle against the Angels
On January 3, 2005, Angels Baseball LP, the ownership group for the Anaheim Angels, announced that it would change the name of the club to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
Arturo Morenobelieved Team spokesmen pointed out that from its inception, the Angels had been granted territorial rights by Major League Baseballto the counties of Los Angeles, Ventura, Riverside, and San Bernardino in addition to Orange County. The new owner knew the name would help him market the team to the entire Southern California region rather than just Orange County. The "of Anaheim" was included in the official name to comply with a provision of the team's lease at Angel Stadium which requires that "Anaheim be included" in the team's name.
Curt Pringleand other city officials countered that the name change violated the spirit of the lease clause, even if it were in technical compliance. They argued that a name change was a major bargaining chip in negotiations between the city and Disney Baseball Enterprises, Inc., then the ownership group for the Angels. They further argued that the city would never have agreed to the new lease without the name change, because the new lease required that the city partially fund the stadium's renovation but provided very little revenue for the city. Anaheim sued Angels Baseball LP in Orange County Superior Court, and a jury trial was completed in early January 2006, resulting in a victory for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim franchise.
The case is still ongoing and is currently with the
California Court of Appeal.
Disney vs. Suncal vs. Anaheim
In March 2007 the
Disneycorporation filed a lawsuit against the City of Anaheim after the city approved a developer's plan to construct 1,500 homes in the Resort Area, a convert|2.2|sqmi|km2|sing=on district surrounding Disneyland. Disneyclaims that the city breached a contract signed between the city and Resort Area businesses in 1994 banning any housing to be constructed within the Resort Area thereby reserving all land in the convert|2.2|sqmi|km2|sing=on district for tourism and commercial uses. By voting 3-2 to approve the housing development in April, the city of Anaheim thereby violated the terms of the contract.
In response, Disney, Mayor
Curt Pringle, and Council member Harry Sidhu formed a coalition called 'Save Our Anaheim Resort' with the objective of overturning the zoning allowance thereby keeping the initial plan for the Resort Area intact. The highly successful group boasted support from several local politicians, many building trade unions, the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce, the Anaheim Police Department, and the Anaheim Fire Department, as well as 97% of all businesses within the Resort Area. The group collected 21,000 petitions, 9,000 more than needed, to overturn the council's decision to rezone the area with the option of either the council turning the decision over or the city hold an election to vote on the initiative.
In response, Council member Lorri Galloway, Council member Bob Hernandez,
SunCal, and some local affordable housing advocates came together to form a group known as 'The Coalition to Protect and Defend Anaheim'. Their objective was to keep the rezoning approved by the council as legitimate, and stop the so-called " DisneyTakeover".
At the August 21, 2007 city council meeting, the council voted 4-1 to place the zoning decision on the June 3, 2008 ballot (Ms. Galloway voted against). This referendum would have overturned the zoning change on the 26 square acres of land SunCal wanted to build on. On November 27, 2007 the City Council rescinded the decision on a 3-2 vote and cancelled the zoning change, thereby eliminating the need for the referendum.
The next day, August 22, 2007 had the Save Our Anaheim Resort group submit 31,348 signatures for verification for an Initiative that would require that any zoning change in the entire Anaheim Resort District for other than commercial and tourist related uses to be approved by the voters. This Initiative was placed on the June 3, 2008 ballot, and is separate from the referendum. On March 4, 2008, the city council revisited the Initiative and decided to adopt the measure outright by a 3-2 vote, saving about $250,000 in election costs, since the measure no longer needs to be on the ballot.In October 2007, SunCal defaulted on a payment for the property in question. SunCal has also pulled funding for this legal suit.

Then in November 2007, The Frank Family, owners of the Mobile Home Park land in dispute, filed a counter suit against SunCal for their failure to make the required payment in October 2007. [http://ocresort.freedomblogging.com/files/2007/11/frankcountersuit.pdf]
