A new section of the Revised Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) dealing with potential greenhouse emissions from the proposed West Coyote Hills project is now available for review.

           

The new section has been added to address the issue of the project’s greenhouse gas emissions and their potential effect on global climate change.  The additional analysis was prepared in response to public comments on prior draft EIRs. 

 

The new section may be viewed during business hours at the Community Development Department at Fullerton City Hall, 303 W. Commonwealth Ave.;  the Fullerton Main Library, 353 W. Commonwealth Ave.;  and the Hunt Branch Library, 201 S. Basque Ave.

 

The new section has also been placed on the City of Fullerton website, www.ci.fullerton.ca.us, under the Community Development Department section.

 

Deadline for submitting comments on the new section is Nov. 30.  Public hearings on the item have not yet been set. 

 

The 582-acre West Coyote Hills site 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.   

 

Further information about the Coyote Hills Specific Plan update may be obtained by calling Joan Wolff, planning consultant for the city’s Community Development Department, at (714) 738-6837.

 

Persons requiring special accommodations to review the revised material are asked to contact Wolff.
