Public forum set on West Coyote Hills plan
Contact :Sylvia Palmer Mudrick, Public Information Coordinator    (714) 738-6317
A public forum on the West Coyote Hills Specific Plan has been scheduled for Tuesday, April 22.

The forum, coordinated by the Fullerton Development Services Department, will be held from 6:30-10:30 p.m. at First Evangelical Free Church of Fullerton, 2801 Brea Blvd., on the northeast corner of the intersection of Brea and Bastanchury Road.

Plans for the forum came about as the result of Pacific Coast Homes proposal to develop a 760-unit housing project in the west hills area.

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 La Mirada, and on the south by Rosecrans Avenue. Gilbert Street divides the property from north to south, creating a 370-acre western parcel and a 140-acre eastern parcel.

In addition to the residential units on 206 acres, the Pacific Coast Homes project includes 280 acres of open space and recreational trails, a 17-acre public use area which could include an elementary school site, a six-acre commercial site near Rosecrans, and a one-acre site for a fire station.

At the forum, Development Services staff members will explain the city's plan review process. In addition, presentations will be made by Pacific Coast Homes and by the community group Friends of Coyote Hills, which would like to leave the entire area in open space.

A question-and-answer session will also be held.

Further information about the forum may be obtained by calling Fullerton Senior Planner Melanie Mullis at (714) 738-6837.

Persons requiring special accommodations to attend the forum are asked to notify Mullis prior to April 22.
