The city of Anaheim has already approved a handful of permits, which assess the work so far at more than $14 million dollars.

Some of those permits include projects for a new retail outlet, a microbrewery and a character meet-and-greet area.

The Walt Disney Company is the parent company of this station.

Study: You could be consuming a credit card's weight in plastic weekly

Did you know you could be swallowing a credit card's weight in plastic every week?

According to a new study by the University of Newcastle, in Australia, people ingest an average of 5 grams of micro-plastics -- which are particles smaller than 5 millimeters.

This kind of contamination is found in food and drinks, like water, beer, shellfish and salt.

Researchers say the particles can come from everyday products, like microbeads in toothpaste and artificial clothing fibers.

Changing tables will be installed in the restrooms of high-need public places first -- such as parks, recreation centers, community centers and libraries.

They'll roll out in cities such as Cincinnati, Dallas, Philadelphia and more.
