An informational meeting is set for Wednesday, July 8, to bring the public up to date on the proposed West Coyote Hills project as it readies itself to go through the public hearing process.

 

The meeting will be held from 7-9:30 p.m. at the Fullerton Senior Multi-Service Center, 340 W. Commonwealth Ave.

 

The 582-acre West Coyote Hills site in Fullerton is bounded on the north by La Habra, on the east by Euclid Street, on the west by the Hawks Pointe development, and on the south by Rosecrans Avenue.  Gilbert Street divides the property from north to south.

 

Developer Pacific Coast Homes proposes to build a maximum of 760 housing units in an approximate 180-acre portion of the area.  Other components of the West Coyote Hills Specific Plan include a 5.2-acre neighborhood commercial development, and approximately 283 acres of open space and recreational uses, including the 72-acre Robert E. Ward Nature Preserve.   

 

Joan Wolff, planning consultant for the Fullerton Community Development Department, said the agenda for the July 8 Community Informational Meeting will include a presentation on the project’s history and its current status, including conclusions reached in the Environmental Impact Report, as well as the planned public hearing process. 

 

Participants in the community informational meeting will be able to ask questions following the presentation.  The meeting will be conducted by a facilitator.

 

Wolff said following the July 8 meeting, the project will begin the public hearing process with sessions before the Parks and Recreation Commission, the Transportation and Circulation Commission, the Energy and Resource Management Committee, and the Planning Commission.

 

Wolff said the tentative goal is to bring the project to the City Council for consideration in October.

 

Further information about the July 8 meeting may be obtained by calling Wolff at (714) 738-6837.

 

Persons requiring special accommodations to attend the meeting are asked to contact Wolff prior to July.
