381, 340, 1,754, 740, and now 1…

We’ve been stewing on the indefensible Orange County Board of Supervisors’ decision since last month.  We tried to be proactive… we met with the City of Yorba Linda to brainstorm ideas.  We have a few opportunities there, but the clock was ticking.

So here it is by the numbers:

  • 381 homes destroyed or damaged in the Freeway Complex Fire.  Lives were ruined, memories, family heirlooms, and cherished items lost forever in the ash. It’s because of how devastating this fire was that we launched this battle to stop…
  • 340 more houses in the hills.  The developer has proposed a dangerous and likely devastating development situated in the hills above Yorba Linda.  And we’ve been at it a long time…
  • 1,754 days ago the County notified residents its intent to create an Environmental Impact Report for this hideous project. And, …
  • 740 days ago we filed our first lawsuit on the Esperanza Hills project. We won enough to overturn the development approvals last December. But we had to file an appeal to keep our options fully open as we defended our neighborhood.  But with the 4-1 Board vote to re-approve the project last month, we were force to file …
  • One more lawsuit last Friday.  Frankly it infuriates us that the Supervisors ignored us and completely reversed their position on the project.

We decided we needed to keep the pressure on. We are not done, and we hope you aren’t either. 

To file this newest lawsuit, we needed funds. We are so grateful several residents stepped forward to continue the fight.

Right now and through July 4th, we have a challenge grant of $5,000 being pledged by residents to continue this fight. 

We know you care deeply about the community.  We know you are tired of the traffic, safety impacts and shenanigans.  Great… so are we…

We need your support for this current effort.  Will you donate $100, $250 or $500 (or more!) to help us meet our challenge grant? Donate online here.

In the end, we are all in this together and by sticking together we have an opportunity to affect the outcome of this proposal.  Let’s send this developer and his cronies back to Arizona!

Please donate as generously as you can so we meet this $5,000 challenge grant!
