HUNTINGTON BEACH : Park, Landscaping on Council Agenda
A new community park and landscaping for oceanfront areas will be considered by the City Council tonight.
The council has been asked to rezone five acres near Golden West Street and Garfield Avenue for a park. It would be one of four new parks outlined in the master plan for the Holly-Seacliff area. Holly-Seacliff is a 768-acre expanse in northwest Huntington Beach being developed with homes as oil wells are phased out.
Also tonight the council is expected to consider landscaping along Pacific Coast Highway, where more oil derricks are being removed.
“When the wells are removed, large visible areas of unimproved bluff will exist,” a city staff report said. The report urges the council to spend $8,660 to plan landscaping for the bluffs.
