West Coyote Hills

The State Coastal Conservancy will consider at its December 2, 2021 meeting an award of grant funding of up to $10,134,450 to the City of Fullerton (“City”) toward acquisition of a 13.7-acre property in the West Coyote Hills area of north Orange County for open space, habitat protection, watershed management, and future public access. This amount includes (1) up to $9,846,720  toward fee acquisition, and (2) up to $287,730 for escrow and closing costs.

Section 5096.501 of Chapter 1.695 of the California Public Resources Code defines a “major acquisition” as one for which one or more state agencies will together spend more than $15 million to acquire land for specified purposes. The law requires a state agency contributing to a major acquisition to post on a public-facing Website certain documents related to the transaction, including an independent appraisal review, a  “project justification”, and other environmental documents as appropriate no later than 30 days before consideration and action to award funding. The following information is intended to comply with these requirements.
