Fullerton’s General Plan Committee to Focus on Coyote Hills

The City of Fullerton’s General Plan Advisory Committee (GPAC) took a bold step at their meeting last night to include West Coyote Hills as a Focus Area in the City’s new General Plan update. The Coyote Hills area was not included as a focus area in the last General plan update that was done in 1996. In a packed meeting room, a motion was made by Richard Lambros to uphold a prior “gag” order relating to discussing Coyote Hills. The motion failed. After several members of the audience voiced their opinions the Committee voted to create a new Coyote Hills Focus Area.

  1. We live in La Habra and the traffic is terrible on Euclid, I cant imagine how bad the traffic will be once developed.

  2. Monica, I work for a home builder and the development of Coyote Hills will give me and my family a great deal of pleasure. It’s sad to read that now that you have a piece of the American dream, that you don’t want others to share in the same dream just because you have to wait at two red lights instead of 1 at Euclid and Malvern in the middle of rush hour.

  3. Mr. Diaz, shove your American dream. YOU want to mow over the last snippet of raw land in persuit of what…a new Hummer? Go peddle your homes somewhere that they’re needed and wanted. I’m sure there’s lots of folks living in run-down places that would love a little redevelopment. Better yet, get into a business that’s a little more sustainable. After all, the loggers in Washington that once bemoaned the Spotted Owl always knew they’d have to find other employment once they tore down all the trees, right? Try…home loans!

  4. Jen T, the word on the street is that Chevron is going to build the new houses out of recycled materials, does that make you feel any better? Also, Chevron is going to leave something like 500 acres available to the public for open space, are you smiling yet 🙂 ?

  5. “Chevron came to the Fullerton Excellence in Education Foundation with the concept of the Toast to Learning Wine Auction. To seed the original auction, Chevron donated $25,000. The first auction was a great success and profits were even greater the second year. Chevron has continued underwriting the major costs of the event with their annual donation of $25,000. The support and vision of Chevron to help Fullerton School District students and staff embrace 21st Century Learning during these years of scarce education dollars has made a material difference in the delivery of exemplary educational opportunities for our Fullerton School District students.” Who says money can’t but you love?

    1. Ed, “Who says money can’t buy you love?” you raise a good point about the real meaning of Means’ (Chevron Don) $25,000 donation.

  6. Raw land…its a weed patch and the catus, which isn’t native, can’t wait for it to be developed and turned into something usefull with native plantings. It now is nothing but a eye sore. For the friends of Coyote Hills, all 45 of them, this doesn’t even equal 1% of the population of Fullerton. Why should we give in to such a small minority. They want the world and have nothing to give in return.
    This development will help bring Fullerton back into the 21st century where it belongs.

    1. “This development will help bring Fullerton back into the 21st century where it belongs.”

      Please explain what this string of nonsense is supposed to mean.

      BTW, if the cactus isn’t native where did it come from, pray tell?

      1. lol … “Back to the Present Future” screening yesterday and tomorrow outside the old Fox Theater

        “F-town’s gonna need a really big DeLorean this time…”

    2. Coyote Hills is alive with native coastal sage scrub, dormant looking this time of year to conserve water. You’re likely unfamiliar because 97% of it has been developed away, including a majority of Coyote Hills that was ALREADY developed. I suggest you learn to appreciate your succulents as we already have mandatory water rationing in place and the long-term drought is just no fan of yer sprinkley little lawns.

      This 21st century development of yours looks to be all about overcrowded & under funded schools, water shortages, traffic jams, added pollution, and corporate & political greed. I almost envy you being so close to realizing your community goals…if it weren’t for the willful ignorance part.

      I submit that the true minority are those shilling for Chevron to serve their own interests. The rest of us may just care about our homes, town, county, and state.
