The application for Vesting Tentative Tract Map 17609 was approved by City Council on November 17, 2015 at a public hearing set to consider an appeal of the Planning Commission decision on the project. The City Council denied the appeal and upheld the Planning Commission's decision to approve the applications for the West Coyote Hills project. From this page, you can view information about the West Coyote Hills project.
Location: The property is located in the northwest portion of Fullerton, and is bounded on the north by the City of La Habra, on the east by Euclid Street, on the west by the Hawks Pointe development and City of La Mirada, and on the south by Rosecrans Avenue and the Nora Kuttner and Castlewood Trails. Gilbert Street divides the property from north to south.
In April, 2014, the City Council announced a “Path Forward” acquisition plan for the West Coyote Hills property. The approved project, as described in a Vesting Tentative Tract Map (VTTM) and supporting Addendum Number 1 to the West Coyote Hills Final EIR, implements this plan. The project dedicates an 18.5 acre area (Neighborhood 2 under the Specific Plan Amendment #8) for open space purposes, and the VTTM subdivides the balance of the property in a manner that allows for public acquisition of additional property or the entire site.
The approved project also includes a postponement of development activity to allow time to acquire funding for property acquisition. The VTTM includes approximately 301 acres of open space (121 of which are in a contiguous area), 161 acres for single family attached and detached homes (maximum 760 units), 17 acres for a multiple use site (residential and open space/recreational uses), 5 acres for a commercial center and 24 acres for vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian circulation on approximately 510 acres. The property location is generally north of Rosecrans Avenue and the Nora Kuttner and Castlewood recreational trails, south of the Fullerton/La Habra city boundary, east of the Hawks Pointe development (off Beach Blvd.) and west of Euclid St.
