Measure W Defeated: Residents Vote Againt Development of West Coyote Hills
Measure W was defeated by a healthy margin on November 6, 2012: 60.8% of Fullerton voters rejected Measure W which would have given Chevron-Pacific Coast Homes entitlements to build 760 houses and a shopping center on the 510-acre site of West Coyote Hills. So many of you told us that our last natural open space is too precious to be paved, and that a park is the best use of this land. It is our natural heritage. Others expressed great concern at the pressure it would put on our public infrastructure: traffic congestion, school crowding, rising water costs, etc.
