PanoramaThe former Canyon Crest project, now called Madrona, will be decided by the Brea City Council in the coming months. The project proposes 162 units on 367 hillside acres in an historic fire corridor. The Council was forced into a legal settlement requiring them to process the project under rules that are 27 years old. But the Council has an out. They can turn the project down outright because the project cannot mitigate (fix) three significant unavoidable negative impacts: air quality, biology and traffic. Tell them to Just Say No.

We urge hillside supporters to email two members of the Brea City Council before Tuesday, April 15th:

Mayor Brett Murdock

Mayor Pro Tem Marick

The message is simple: urge them to vote yes to the appeal and no to Madrona.

In approving the Final Environmental Documents, the Planning Commission issued three Statements of Overriding Consideration--on air quality, biology and traffic. This means they believed the benefits of this project (providing housing in Brea for millionaires) outweighed the negative impacts that would go on forever. These impacts would be borne by existing residents.

Issuing three Statements of Overriding Consideration for a project is a significant decision for the Brea City Council.
