Over the past 20 years, I have watched as development companies have slowly graded and developed nearly every inch of natural open space in Fullerton. I believe it is the duty of City Council to consider both the environmental and the long-term consequences of such proposals.
For example, I was firmly against Chevron/Pacific Coast Homes’ recent proposal to develop West Coyote Hills. I spoke at the City Council in May and will continue to speak and act against such proposals.
West Coyote Hills is one of the last, large natural open spaces left in North Orange County, and is home to several native plant and animal species, including the native California gnat catcher.
I believe City Council should be more pro-active in seeking state, federal, and private grants to preserve this land as an open space, for future generations to enjoy.
