Next stop, a Conditional Use Permit in order to allow a Community Care Facility and getting their Tentative Tract Map & Design Review approved.

Let's figure this out together. We encourage ALL citizens to get involved in some way. Let's respect the property owners' rights to build something, but let's work together to keep it within the character of Yorba Linda.

Our Concerns

High Density

Too much high density housing proposed for Yorba Linda.

Traffic

Five of the proposed projects dump onto Lakeview Avenue. Somehow the EIR stated that would cause no impact.

Height

Some of the proposed projects are 4 stories high! There are no other 4 story apartments in Yorba Linda.

Fast Tracked EIR's

All of these projects fall under the umbrella of the general EIR for the entire 2008-14 Housing Element. The EIR is already approved and any specific neighborhood concerns will fall under an addendum to the general EIR that does not have the same reporting guidelines as regular EIR.

Lack of Affordable Housing

We were sold on the need for Measures H & I by saying we HAD to have more affordable housing in Yorba Linda as demanded by the state. Very few affordable housing units are part of the proposed plans.

Changed RHNA Numbers

Our Regional Housing Needs Assessment numbers changed prior to submitting the 2014-21 Housing Element to the State. We missed an opportunity to down-zone, even if it meant bringing it back before the voters.

Oil Wells

The Lakebed property has 4 working oil wells and 2 capped oil wells. We are hoping that with a full site-specific EIR we can be assured of public and resident safety. Some of the pipes and wells in the area were drilled over 100 years ago.
