Last year a sizable majority of Fullerton voters decided they didn’t want the Pacific Coast Homes development approved by the Fullerton City Council for the former oil property. Those wishing to see the hills transformed into a nature park instead should vote with their feet on November 9 and support the Friends of Coyote Hills by walking the trails of Fullerton or making a donation on the event’s website.
