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.
The process of forming a Community Advisory Committee (CAC) has begun. Comprised of a range of West Anaheim community stakeholders including residents, business owners and various non-profit and community service providers, the CAC will act in an advisory capacity to City staff, consultants, the Planning Commission and the City Council throughout the creation of the Specific Plan. A complete list of the targeted stakeholder groups and an explanation of the expected role and selection process for the committee is available by clicking here.
In addition to this list, a few other “at-large” individuals will be considered if their inclusion would further the goal of ensuring that the diverse interests of the West Anaheim community are represented. If you are interested in applying for consideration to serve on the CAC, please complete the “At-large” application form (available by clicking here) and return it to City staff by no later than 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 10, 2015.
