Anaheim Canyon specific plan banner

In 2011, the City of Anaheim was awarded a grant from the California Strategic Growth Council to 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. Links to the draft specific plan document are provided to the left. Links to the existing and proposed General Plan and Zoning maps are provided below.

A Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) has been prepared to analyze the environmental effects of implementation of the ACSP. The Draft EIR was circulated for a 45-day public review period from May 28, 2015 to July 13, 2015. A link to the EIR is provided below. Comments received by July 13, 2015 will be addressed in the Final EIR and submitted to Planning Commission as part of its staff report.

Staff will hold a workshop with the Planning Commission to discuss the proposed Anaheim Canyon Specific Plan on August 10, 2015 at 5:00 p.m. The workshop will take place immediately following all other items on the Planning Commission agenda. This workshop is intended to give the Commission an overview of the project and answer any questions it may have in advance of the public hearing (see below). The public is welcome to attend this workshop; however, this will not be the forum for the public to provide the Commission with comments on the specific plan or ask questions of staff.

The Planning Commission will hold a public hearing for this project on August 24, 2015, at 5:00 pm. Following a brief staff presentation, the public will have the opportunity to provide comments on the specific plan to the Planning Commission. A report to the Planning Commission containing staff’s recommendations will be available on the City’s website the Thursday before the meeting at The Planning Commission will make a recommendation to City Council to approve or deny this project. The City Council is tentatively scheduled to review the project at a public hearing on September 15, 2015 at 5:30 pm. For more information, please contact:
