Beach Boulevard Specific Plan

Beach Boulevard specific plan banner

The City of Anaheim is working to create a better Beach Boulevard. The City’s Beach Boulevard Initiative seeks to bring new shopping, restaurants, community gathering places, homes and other uses to the 1.5 miles of Beach Boulevard that run through Anaheim.

The effort is moving ahead with action by the Anaheim City Council in September 2016 that clears the way for the building of a shopping center at Beach Boulevard and Lincoln Avenue and the acquisition of adjacent land to replace an outdated motel with new housing and shops. Click here for more information on the Beach Boulevard Initiative. 

In order to analyze the environmental effects associated with the adoption of the specific plan, the City, as the Lead Agency, will prepare a Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR). Please click here to view a detailed project description, location information and initial study of the probable environmental effects anticipated as a result of the adoption of the specific plan. This information is also available for viewing in person at the City of Anaheim Planning and Building Department (200 S. Anaheim Boulevard, MS 162 Anaheim, CA 92803), the Haskett Branch Library (650 W Broadway, Anaheim, CA 92804) and Anaheim Central Library (500 W. Broadway, Anaheim, CA 92805). 

The City is requesting input regarding the scope and content of the environmental information that should be included in the DEIR. As such, a Notice of Preparation (NOP) of the DEIR has also been sent to all responsible agencies, interested parties, property owners and residents within a 300-foot radius of the project area. If you would like to provide input, please send your written response at the earliest possible date, but no later than Friday, May 12, 2017, at 5:00 p.m. Please send your response via email to or by mail to:

  Gustavo Gonzalez, AICP, Senior Planner

The City will also hold a scoping meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 27, 2017 at the West Anaheim Youth Center located at 320 S. Beach Boulevard, Anaheim, California. The purpose of the meeting is to receive input on the scope and content of the environmental information that should be included in the DEIR. All members of the public are invited to attend.

If you would like to be added to the project's mailing list to receive information, including notice of all future public meetings and hearings for this project, please contact the City staff member listed on this page.
