News ImageAugust 4, 2017  NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING BY THE ORANGE COUNTY ZONING ADMINISTRATORNOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING 8-17-17
BY THE ORANGE COUNTY ZONING ADMINISTRATOR

PROPOSAL – Planning Application PA140005: Use Permit to the Zoning Administrator to establish a remainder of a building site acquired for public use as a legal building site and allow for the development of a new single family dwelling on the vacant lot.

BACKGROUND - The subject property, which previously contained a single-family dwelling was acquired and demolished by the County of Orange as part of the Katella Avenue Smart Street Project to allow for the widening of the existing public right of way. Upon completion of the street improvement project in 2012, portions of several properties (“remainder lots”) were left unused and were considered surplus. In October 2013, the County sold the properties at a public auction. The project site is currently vacant and similar remnant lots to the west have since been developed into single-family dwellings.
