Thesaurus Term of the Day: Project Area Committee members

Project Area Committee members
Added: April 15, 2010

This is another "role" term to link people to organizations. According to the July 27, 1987 Los Angeles Times, the Project Area Committee was established to advise the City of Anaheim on the Katella Redevelopment Project, which, among other things, would have included a peoplemover-type transit system. While the thesaurus focus is Disneyland, I also include relevant outside information, such as Anaheim's actions in the Disneyland area. The project was withdrawn before the end of 1987 in the face of opposition from Anaheim HOME.

Jason, do you know if the Peoplemover-like system would have involved Disney? Or was it too early in the development stages to even say? I'm sure it would have cost a fortune, but it's too bad it never happened.

I don't know a lot about the project (that knowledge is contained in unread newspaper articles!). It was not, on its face, a Disney-originated plan, but I'd hope the Anaheim leaders would have had sense enough to consult with the experts had the plans gotten further.
