UPDATE: On Monday, October 31, 2016 Judge William D. Claster ruled in favor of the City Council’s November 15th unanimous approval of the ‘Path Forward Plan’ for WCH. This is a significant victory for our community. You can download a copy of the ruling here. Thank you for supporting the ‘Path Forward Plan’. We hope you will support our efforts to expedite the opening of the Robert E. Ward Nature Preserve and an early trail opening.
We are a broad-based group of Fullerton residents who support the opening of the long fenced-in West Coyote Hills. We are long-time active citizens who come from a variety of backgrounds, interests and political persuasions, who support the sensible and sustainable plan for West Coyote Hills.
Open Coyotes Hills has continued to be engaged in dialogue with the other interested parties (Friends of Coyote Hills, City of Fullerton and Chevron-Pacific Coast Homes) to find a win-win solution for our community regarding the West Coyote Hills project. Since 2013, the ongoing discussions continue to move this project toward a positive resolution that will be mutually beneficial for the community and landowner.
A key objective of this process is to secure the maximum amount of open space and ensure that it is accessible to the public in a timely manner. The goal is to accomplish this in a fiscally responsible way and to respect the property owner’s rights. We are optimistic that while there are still technical details being worked out between the parties that in the coming months the City will schedule an information session to update our community prior to a Planning Commission meeting.
A key component of bringing this to resolution is that we continue our history of working together as a community to secure the best possible resolution which all of us will be able to enjoy.
Our intent is to educate the larger community with fact-based information from documented sources. We believe this has the potential to bring our community together.
