ANAHEIM, CA - (November 9, 2013) - The City of Anaheim will hold an Open House and Environmental Impact Report (EIR) Scoping Meeting for the Anaheim Canyon Specific Plan on Tuesday, Nov. 12 from 4:30-6:30 p.m., and the public is invited to attend and provide input on information to be included in the environmental documentation (EIR) the City is preparing to analyze the project. The event will be held at:

Conference Room CC1 (located on the 4th floor)
The Anaheim Canyon is a primarily industrial area of the City located east of the 57 freeway and north of the 91 freeway. A specific plan is a document that provides the framework for current and future development for a defined area.
In 2011, the City of Anaheim was awarded a grant from the California Strategic Growth Council to prepare a specific plan. In late 2011 and early 2012, workshops were held with the community and at City Council and Planning Commission meetings to gain input and provide public awareness for this project. In May 2013, the City released the first draft of the specific plan document for public review on the Anaheim Canyon project webpage. The draft specific plan updates and consolidates two specific plans (the Northeast Area Specific Plan and the PacifiCenter Anaheim Specific Plan) and the Scenic Corridor Overlay Zone, as it relates to the Anaheim Canyon, into one new specific plan.
The goal of the specific plan is to encourage sustainable development and create a business environment attractive to a wide variety of industries. It is also intended to facilitate and encourage use of multiple types of transportation by improving and enhancing the Anaheim Canyon Metrolink Station and area sidewalks, bike lanes, trails, and bus stops while continuing to provide functional access for goods movement and automobiles. It is anticipated that the draft specific plan may be further modified to reflect changing conditions and community input, prior to review for approval by the Planning Commission and City Council in late spring 2014.
