Allred Forging Ahead With Revised Rezoning Plan For Los Alamitos

In the fall of 2016, the residents of Cypress, California, rejected a ballot proposal that would allow Los Alamitos Race Course to be rezoned for a mixed-use community of homes and shopping areas. The proposal was defeated, with 51.1 percent of residents rejecting the plan.

Now, one year later, Dr. Edward Allred, the owner of Los Alamitos, is hoping that a revised development plan for the area will be given the go-ahead by voters.

According to a report in the Orange County Register, Allred’s new proposal does have the support of the Citizens for Responsible Development, a Cypress community group which helped defeat the 2016 plan.

“I think it’s a good, strategic, 10-year plan so that you have underlying zoning that would be much more palatable and a better fit for the community,” said George Pardon, the head of the community group.

The 2016 proposal called for a “32-acre town center with entertainment, retail stores and restaurants; a 20-acre public park; 93 acres of low- and medium-density homes; and commercial space and senior housing” on the remainder.

According to the Register, the new plan would “lower building heights from the original proposal, dedicate 20 acres as parkland including a portion that could be developed right away, bar commercial uses along Cerritos Avenue, which faces residences, and remove language that gave the city discretion to allow “similar” uses to the proposed zoning.”

In order to place the zoning measure onto the June 2018 ballot, supporters will be circulating petitions to area residents. The group needs at least 2,600 signatures to get the proposal onto the ballot.
