Area residents filled the council chambers earlier this month to express their alarm about the oversized buildings planned for 600 W. Commonwealth Ave.

Friends for a Livable Fullerton has launched an effort to reverse the decision by the Fullerton City Council to amend the city’s General Plan to allow for unwarranted Urban Mixed Use designation at the site of 600 W. Commonwealth. Red Oak Investments of Irvine is attempting to build 295 apartment units on the site, in two structures with combined square footage of over 600,000 square feet. Although neighbors complained that the plan does not include enough resident parking, and is out of character with the area and too large, the Fullerton City Council (with Bruce Whitaker dissenting) approved a radical upzoning of the site, allowing more than twice the density of residents anticipated in the city’s General Plan.

FFLF is asking for your help to keep Fullerton a livable city:

“We have  a lot to do in  a very short time! We are circulating an official petition to overturn the City Council’s approval of the Red Oak High-Density Apartments!

 How to Help:

  1. We urgently need “circulators” to gather signatures for our Red Oak referendum!You must be a registered voter in the City of Fullerton.
  1. Call or e-mail us TODAY or TOMORROW with your phone and address as we are on  a very tight deadline. You can gather signatures at a store or walk a neighborhood. We will sign you up and deliver a petition and a simple training.
  1. Tell your friends and neighbors in person, e-mail and Facebook. The best thing they can do is sign and circulate our petition, too. 
  1. Call or e-mail us to donate to cover our legal expenses in preparing the referendum (not tax-deductible).”
