ANAHEIM OFFICIALS ANNOUNCE PLANS FOR SPORTS COMPLEX

     Anaheim officials announced plans yesterday for Sportstown
Anaheim, a 159-acre sports, entertainment, retail and office
complex that would surround Anaheim Stadium and help boost the
region's economy, according to the L.A. TIMES.  The complex will
be divided into five sections, one including a new football
stadium.  Anaheim City Manager James Ruth said the city will know
"within 90 days" whether they will have an NFL team to replace
the Rams.  Plans also call for Anaheim Stadium to be renovated
into a baseball-only facility, a youth sports center called
"Little a," two new hotels and a western-themed area with
restaurants, stores and a stage to link the stadium area with the
Pond.  Sportstown Anaheim would also include a monorail
connecting to Disneyland.  Officials would not reveal costs or a
timetable.  Officials also said they are counting on partnerships
with private developers, but representatives from the Walt Disney
Co. were not present yesterday.  NFL Dir of Communications Greg
Aiello said the league would not comment on the project (Greg
Hernandez, L.A. TIMES, 1/4).
