SOAR is a broad coalition of local business owners, community leaders and Anaheim residents.
Founded in 2007, SOAR was created to protect the Anaheim Resort District — Anaheim’s economic engine.
At the time, the Resort District was seriously threatened by a plan to build high density housing within the district, which would have damaged its ability to grow, create jobs, generate tax revenue and provide visitors a true resort experience.
In response, a broad coalition of more than 10,000 Anaheim residents came together to use their combined influence to preserve and protect the Anaheim Resort District.
Today, SOAR continues to protect the Resort District and promote business and tourism growth in order to ensure sufficient funding for vital city services.
SOAR also has a political action committee, SOAR PAC, to support candidates that align with the business- and visitor-friendly district.
