  • Residents and Neighbors,

    Anaheim is the oldest and largest city in Orange County, with more than 360,000 residents, represented by Mayor Harry Sidhu and six City Council members elected by-district.

    Residents and Neighbors,

    For decades, the City of Anaheim has partnered with its business community to secure billions in private investment that today has made it a world-class destination with more than 24 million visitors worldwide.

    Our local economy continues to grow as a result of long-standing public-private partnerships that created the Disneyland Resort District with the opening of their largest main park expansion Star Wars: A Galaxy’s Edge this summer, Stadium District with World Champion teams Angels Baseball and Anaheim Ducks, and most recently the seventh betterment of the Anaheim Convention Center (ACC), maintaining the ACC as the largest, premier convention center on the West Coast.

    And while our economy continues to thrive and tax revenue has grown exponentially to pay for expanded public safety, parks, libraries, community centers and other vital city programs; many aging neighborhoods have been waiting patiently for the greater Anaheim community to focus on their quality of life needs.

    With the launch of ANAHEI’M FIRST by Anaheim Mayor Harry Sidhu at the State of the City on Tuesday, March 5, 2019, the next 10 years will bear witness to a total revitalization of every neighborhood in Anaheim with a $250 million proposed 2030 Neighborhood Investment Program.

    ANAHEI’M FIRST is a partnership between the City of Anaheim, Anaheim Chamber, Visit Anaheim, and the Anaheim Community Foundation.

    It will be led by the ANAHEI’M FIRST Neighborhood Leadership Council, comprised of engaged residents who are representative of the socioeconomic and cultural diversity of each councilmanic district in Anaheim.

    The Neighborhood Leadership Council will engage residents in all aspects of the program, including development of significant new infrastructure, expanded police and fire resources, programs to maintain a strong local economy, and continuous reinvestment to build and maintain vibrant neighborhoods citywide.

    We look forward to partnering with residents and neighborhoods citywide to ensure that all neighborhoods directly benefit now and for generations to come in the economic strength of their city.

    Kindest regards,
    Todd Ament
    CEO
    Anaheim Chamber
