The City of Anaheim has been awarded nearly $500,000 from the Strategic Growth Council under the Sustainable Communities Planning Grant and Incentives Program to establish the Beach Boulevard Specific Plan (BBSP), with an emphasis on the Beach Boulevard corridor.
West Anaheim residents generally live in well-maintained neighborhoods. However, many residents report feeling unsafe in their neighborhood due, in large part, to the negative impacts associated with the Beach Boulevard corridor. The purpose of the BBSP is to improve the image and economic potential of West Anaheim’s corridors by creating the land use framework to guide and encourage future public and private investment in the area.
A meaningful, inclusive, and transparent community engagement process is critical to the success of this planning effort. On June 28th, more than 120 participants attended an interactive community workshop held at the Haskett Library. During this open house-style meeting, residents, property owners, and business operators were invited to provide input on the challenges and community vision for West Anaheim. At the request of local apartment residents, a second workshop was held at the Biltmore Apartments on August 7th. Over 40 residents attended the event and offered apartment residents an opportunity to also provide input on the challenges and community vision for West Anaheim. A complete summary report on both of these workshops is available by clicking here. Community members are invited to continue the dialogue on the topics discussed during the workshops by visiting www.improvewestanaheim.com, an interactive on-line tool that allows visitors to view comments, review trends, watch videos and provide further input.
