Project: West Coyote Hills Open Space Aquisition

Description: The City of Fullerton is aggressively pursuing funds to acquire 38.3 acres of available remaining undeveloped land that, when acquired, will enable 359 species to thrive and two million residents living within 10 miles to enjoy about 340 acres of the last remaining contiguous natural open space in north Orange County. The City of Fullerton requests the maximum of $2 million in land acquisition funding to acquire “Neighborhood 1” of West Coyote Hills. Funding for acquisition of this property would assist in purchasing 10.4 acres of open space adjacent to Robert E. Ward Nature Preserve. This acquisition provides the opportunity to preserve important urban space and contribute to additional natural lands, maintain a wildlife corridor, and restore and sustain important habitat and biological species. RMC Objective: Protect and restore aquatic, wetland and migratory bird ecosystems including fish and wildlife corridors and the acquisition of water rights for instream flow.
