Fullerton, CA – Bringing the Fullerton neighborhoods together is the hope and intention of the Downtown Core and Corridors Specific Plan (DCCSP), a community-based planning process for an area that encompasses approximately 1100 acres and spans the commercial core and neighborhoods in and around the adjacent corridors across the City. 
The Specific Plan will guide the transformation of the area into thriving and sustainable districts and neighborhoods that meet the diverse needs of residents, businesses, employees and visitors.  The plan will be vision-driven and implementation-focused as it establishes policies, regulations, and design standards to guide current and future land development in the area.  
 
On Thursday, April 11 from 4:30-7:30, an opportunity to learn more about the project will be held from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm at:

First Christian Church
109 East Wilshire Avenue, 
Fullerton, CA  92832 

Members of the community are not only invited but encouraged to be involved. Topics to be discussed include:
  • better landscaping, lighting and sidewalks
  • opportunities for thriving stores, restaurants and businesses
  • improving connections to our neighborhoods
  • enhancing the City's gateways
  • improving public spaces; and
  • helping to shape the vision for an even better Fullerton. 
In addition to traditional meetings, members of the community are encouraged to participate in the City's planning effort through an online forum at www.Fullertonplanningforum.com.
  
Participants will have the ability to join in moderated discussions in the convenience of their own home or office.  The Fullerton Planning Forum is important to help ensure the City addresses growth, change and the future in a manner that reflects the unique character and perspectives of the Fullerton community.  To learn more go to www.Fullertonplanningforum.com.  
 
The City is also seeking interested community members to be appointed to the Downtown Core and Corridors Specific Plan Planning Advisory Committee (DPAC).  
 
For additional information or if you need accommodations for the public meeting, please contact Heather Allen, Planning Manager at (714) 738-6884, or at HeatherA@cityoffullerton.com.
