Responses to comments on the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the proposed West Coyote Hills project are now available for review.

 

The responses address comments made on the DEIR and updated sections of the DEIR.  Specifically, the responses are contained in three separate documents:

 

- Response to Public Comments:  2006 Draft Environmental Impact Report.

 

- Response to Public Comments:  2008 Recirculated RDEIR dated January 2008 (revised Air Quality, Public Health and Safety, Hydrology and Flood Control, and Biological Resources sections).

 

- Response to Public Comments:  2009 New Section to the Previously Recirculated RDEIR (Greenhouse Gas Section).

           

The documents 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 documents will also be available starting Friday, Jan. 29, on the City of Fullerton website, www.ci.fullerton.ca.us, under the Community Development Department section.

 

In addition, the City has compiled a list of answers to questions that arose out of the public meetings held last July and August on the proposed West Coyote Hills development project.  This document, titled “City of Fullerton:  West Coyote Hills Specific Plan Amendment Frequently Asked Questions,” will also be placed on the city website.

 

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.   

 

The next step in the public review process on the plan will be a yet-to-be-scheduled public hearing before the Fullerton Planning Commission.  The date and time for that meeting will be publicized as soon as they have been set.

 

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 documents are asked to contact Wolff.
