Anaheim Canyon Specific Plan

In 2011, the City of Anaheim was awarded a grant from the California Strategic Growth Councilto prepare a specific plan for Anaheim Canyon. A specific plan is a land use planning document that provides the framework for current and future development for a defined area.  The goal of the Anaheim Canyon Specific Plan (ACSP) is to create a business environment attractive to a wide variety of industries while encouraging sustainable development. The specific plan is anticipated to remove obstacles to the reuse of existing structures and promote infill development of currently vacant or underutilized properties through the use of flexible, easy to use zoning standards. A draft of the specific plan is available on the project webpage: www.anaheim.net/anaheimcanyon.

On May 28, 2015 the City of Anaheim released Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) No. 348 (State Clearinghouse Number 2013101087) prepared for the ACSP for a 45-day public review period from May 28, 2015 to July 13, 2015.  DEIR No. 348 analyzes the environmental effects of the Draft ACSP to the degree of specificity required by Section 15146 of the State CEQA Guidelines. Significant effects on the environment anticipated as a result of implementation of this project include air quality, greenhouse gas emissions, noise, and transportation and traffic. The proposed certification of EIR No. 348 includes adoption of a Findings of Fact, Statement of Overriding Considerations, and Mitigation Monitoring Program No. 312.

All interested parties are invited to submit written comments on the DEIR for consideration by the Planning Commission and the City Council. Due to the time limits mandated byState law, your comments should be sent at the earliest possible date but must arrive not later than 5:00 PM on July 13, 2015.

Please submit your written comments to Susan Kim, Acting Principal Planner, at the City of Anaheim Planning Department, 200 South Anaheim Boulevard, Anaheim, California 92805 or by email at skim@anaheim.net.

The Anaheim City Planning Commission and City Council will hold public hearings in the Anaheim City Council Chamber in the Civic Center, 200 South Anaheim Boulevard, Anaheim, on the dates and times listed below to hear public testimony, and consider DEIR No. 348 and the Proposed Project Actions.  The Planning Commission Public Hearing will be held on August 24, 2015 at 5:00 pm.  The City Council Public Hearing is tentatively scheduled for September 15, 2015 at 5:30 pm.
