LAURIE  MARSHALL  OWNER OF KE;L-LY'S COFFEE  SHiNE  Soured economy leaves vision for Platinum Triangle largely unfulfilled.  1,920  ERIC WOLFE, FOR THE REGISTER The Stadium Lofts are on the northwest corner of Kateiia Avenue and State College Boulevard.  "I moved here... because the rent was pretty good and I like that it's at the center of everything. I would consider buying here if the finances were right."  TYLER UJHAZY  RENTS A LOFT  BY ERIC CARPENTER  ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER  Darin Garrett moved into the Stadium Lofts four years ago, buying in on the ground floor of the Platinum Triangle - a vision for Anaheim that he expected would spring up all around him.  A lifelong Angels fan, he was excited by the prospect of walking to games at the stadium just on the other side of Kateiia Avenue.  Walking in Platinum Triangle appealed to him most. He loved the idea of wandering downstairs to the El Torito Grill to grab a bite. To traipse across to the gym. And to walk to the market that was sure to come.  “I looked at the plans for A-Town across the street from my loft and thought, ‘Man, look at all those offices planned there. Maybe I can even find a job I can walk to,’ ” Garrett said. • Instead, four years later, El Torito has shut down, the gym closed its doors, the market never opened and A-Town is dirt  Total housing units built  6,441  Total housing units approved - with specific plans in place -but not built  23  percent of all the approved housing units have been built  FILE PHOTO: JOSHUA SUDOCK, ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER  The Catch restaurant eiosed for a year and reopened at a new location to make way for Platinum Triangle.  Gang members, business leaders to meet privately  BY ERIC CARPENTER  ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER  Anaheim gang members and youth with criminal records have been invited for the first time to meet with a newly formed business coalition looking to improve some of the city’s toughest neighborhoods.  The private mwting, next week in an undisclosed location, is meant to get the business community talking with gang members about how to make positive changes in impoverished neighborhtxHls plagued by gang violence.  “If we don’t go to the heart of the problem, ii will only get  Galloway  worse,” said former Council-woman Lorri Galloway, who established Anaheim Business Cares in October.  Galloway finished her eight-year term on the council on Tue.sday; she is half-Latina and widely seen as a champion of issues important to Ana-heim’s iMino community.  She has vowed to continue to be a community leader after clashes with police and other community unrest, espe<'ially in heavily Latino neighborhoods, after controversial police shootings earlier this year.  Mayor Tom Tail formed a partnership with leaders from big businesses such as I )isney-iand Resort, the Angels aiul the Ducks to tackle community prolilems. Galloway said  Concierge to guide businesses  SEE MltT«PAOE 5  BY JUSTINE UlUNG  FOR THE REGISTER  Anaheim is trying to keep up in a down economy - by aiming to bt' the most business-friendly city in California.  To that end, the city has launched a concierge program, hiring project managers to shepherd new business owners through the regulatory process in less time and at lower cost.  More businesses opening more quickly means more people working, too, according to the Mayor’s Rt‘gulatory Relief ’Fusk Force, which proposed the concierge program.  “This program will essentially W a one-stop source for all information,” said CJ Armstup, a task force membt*r. “Instead of having the cus  tomer contact numerous ditTerent places, the concierge will be the mediator, and the resix>nsibility for coordinating a projwt will fall in the hands of the concierges rather than the customer.”  The program was included in the city's June budget, authorizing $170,(KK) to the program for two concierge project managers.  The prt^ram aims to inform business owners upfront abt)ut the application process, then help them and even advocate for them through the process, said 'Fhomas Turk, chair of the task force and an associate professor of manago-ment al Chapman University’s Argyros Si’hool of Business and Economics. T'urk said that stream-  llning the process to open a faiit-food restaurant, for instance, could reduce it from 85 days to 60 days, saving about $2,700 per day - and could put employees to work that much sooner.  In May, the City Council also approved st*veral other task-force recommendations to reduce the number of business permits.  Planning Director Sheri Vander Dussen said the success of the program will be measured in coming months and progress reports will go to the City Council.  “It’s not about a specific number we are trying to reach, it’s about changing a culture in the business world," said Mishal Montgomery, a task force member and mayor’s assistant.  ii  When the economy's tight and California's got 11 percent unemployment, everyday somebody's business Is held up, somebody has lost an  opportunity to he worfcliig-and that Is a disaster."
