Disney’s Westcot gets OK

The city council has approved zoning and planning for the Westcot Center project, a $ 2.75 billion expansion of Disneyland.

The 4-0 vote Tuesday night ended a two-year review and cleared the way for work to begin on the project, but the Walt Disney Co. was still studying whether the park made economic sense.

The city and Disney still must negotiate financing for about $ 750 million worth of improvements to streets, sewers and parking garages. Disney will pay for the park, but wants the city to help pay for infrastructure. Disney also wants to resolve disputes with neighbors and school districts about noise, traffic and class crowding.

“It’s a big shot in the arm for the project,” said Ken Wong, senior VP of Disney Development Co.

“This truly is state-of-the-art planning and hopefully will result in a project that will be world-renowned,” said Mayor Tom Daly.
