A two-meeting public hearing on the proposed West Coyote Hills project will be held by the Fullerton City Council in May.

 

The meeting dates and times are 5 p.m. Tuesday, May 11, and 5 p.m. Tuesday, May 25.  Both meetings will be held in the Council Chamber of Fullerton City Hall, 303 W. Commonwealth Ave.

 

The format for the May 11 meeting will include a presentation of the proposed project, followed by questions from the council and the audience.  The May 25 meeting will be open to public comment on the proposal.

 

Both meetings will be broadcast live on the city’s cable channel, Time Warner Channel 3.  Viewers must be Time Warner subscribers to receive the broadcast.

 

The meetings will also be video-streamed over the city’s website, www.ci.fullerton.ca.us.

 

The 510-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, plus improvements to the adjacent 72-acre Robert E. Ward Nature Preserve.   

 

The proposal has already been before the Planning, Parks and Recreation, and Transportation and Circulation commissions; each has reviewed the project and recommended approval.  The Energy and Resource Management Committee recommended that additional sustainability features be incorporated in the development plan.

 

Further information about the public hearing or the project 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 attend the meeting are asked to notify the Community Development staff at (714) 738-6598.
