Angels Up For Discussion by Tustin City Council

The public can offer its opinions Tuesday on reports the Angels baseball team is talking about moving to a new stadium site in Tustin.

The city council will go into a special private meeting to discuss ongoing property negotiations with Pacific Coast Investors, the development company that belongs to Angels’ owner Arte Moreno.

But before the discussion moves behind closed doors, members of the public can offer their views during a public meeting that begins at 4:45 p.m. at Tustin City Hall, 300 Centennial Way.

The Angels broke off talks Friday about a specific new lease agreement with the city of Anaheim, but Mayor Tom Tait said that’s not the end of discussions.

The Angels have been talking to Tustin officials since at least February, signaling potential interest in a move, possibly to the former Marine Corps base.

However, Tustin officials also have questioned whether the Angels merely are using the city as a negotiating tool to put pressure on Anaheim.

The closed door meeting Tuesday will discuss “price and terms of payment” for an unspecified use of property under negotiation with Moreno’s company. The city staff report didn’t make it easily understandable where the property is located.
