ANAHEIM : City Rejects Hearing on Housing Proposal


The City Council rejected a request from the county and an environmental group that wanted a new public hearing on the proposed Mountain Park housing project in Gypsum Canyon.

An environmental group, Friends of the Tecate Cypress, and the county wanted another hearing on the development plan that would bring nearly 8,000 homes to the 3,179-acre canyon.

Council members, however, said they had heard enough testimony at a meeting two weeks ago when the project was unanimously approved.


“We had a long list of people speak, plus about a foot of evidence,” said Councilman Tom Daly.

Mayor Fred Hunter agreed. “We were here for about four hours last time. We’re not going to have a rehearing,” Hunter said.
