July 12, 2011 Council Re-Vote On Chevron Development
Please mark your calendar to attend this very important hearing. Speak up on why you think Chevron's development proposal is the wrong use of this 510-acre open space in North Orange county. Preserving all of West Coyote Hills as a natural open space park forever is the best use of this wonderful asset.
The Friends of Coyote Hills and supporters have fought for nearly ten years to save this open space treasure for our community. Over that time, even Chevron has realized the importance of open space and parks to residents. So they've changed their publicity message from ... what beautiful houses we will build... to ... what open space we will leave you... Don't be fooled (those green signs are not us). There is only one of us fighting for a 100% open space park , and it's not the oil company.
We hope to see you at the hearing at the Fullerton City Hall. We will remind you as the date nears. http://www.coyotehills.org/
