A two-meeting public hearing on the proposed West Coyote Hills project will be held by the Fullerton Planning Commission in March.

 

The meeting dates and times are 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 10, and 6 p.m. Thursday, March 18.  Both meetings will be held in the Council Chamber of Fullerton City Hall, 303 W. Commonwealth Ave.

 

Because of the complexity of the proposal and the public interest in the project, it was decided to spread the hearing over two meetings to allow adequate time for consideration. 

 

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 March 10 meeting will be primarily for presenting the project proposal and for answering commissioners questions.  The March 18 meeting will opened for general public comments about the proposal.

 

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 for wildlife habitat, trails and vista parks.

 

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.
