The Fountain Valley City Council is set to vote Tuesday on whether to certify the environmental report for the Fountain Valley Crossings rezoning project, which could allow redevelopment of 162 acres of a mostly industrial area in the southwest portion of the city.

Council approval of the report is needed before the city can make the zoning changes.

The council had been scheduled to vote on the report in June but postponed action to allow more public comment.

The city has since released a revised report that made some tweaks, mostly to the traffic component. Consultants will review the changes with the council Tuesday before the vote.


City staff refreshed the council on the plan this week.

The Crossings area, bordered by Ward Street, Talbert and Ellis avenues and the Santa Ana River, eventually could become a blend of retail and entertainment venues and contain up to about 500 homes. No specific building projects are proposed.

Tuesday’s meeting starts at 7 p.m. at City Hall, 10200 Slater Ave.
