Today, Kris Murray sent out an e-mail blast touting that "a report confirms that city services are equally allocated to all neighborhoods with a strong commitment to capital investments in our most distressed communities."
But if you read the fine print, the report states that the report did exclude services provided to the Resort and projects and programs funded by restricted funds and special assessments.
Let's take a look at the rundown of investments that directly benefit Disney/Resort and compare those numbers to the City of Anaheim's overall investment in the rest of the city.
$158 million GardenWalk Hotel subsidy
$319 million Disney streetcar system
$184 million ARTIC train station
$20 million Anaheim Convention Center Grand Plaza
TOTAL: $681 million
$55.8 million from 2005-2012
$16.3 million in the next five years
TOTAL: $72.1 million
