Planning Environmental Reports

Title: Former Gun Range

Applicant: City of Huntington Beach

Location: Huntington Beach Central Park

Report Summary

The approximately 4.91 acre site is located within Huntington Central Park, surrounded by Talbert Avenue to the north, Ellis Avenue to the south, Gothard Street to the east, and Goldenwest Street to the west. The project proposes the remediation of hazardous materials contamination associated with the site's historical use as a gun range facility. Following remediation, the project site would be developed as an open space/park element, as part of Huntington Central Park. On-site improvements may consist of facilities typical of open space/park uses, such as children's playground/park area, dog park, basketball courts, tennis courts, snack bar/restaurant, picnic area, and associated parking areas, restrooms, irrigation, lighting, and various utilities. Potential future improvements could also include higher intensity uses such as a commercial recreational facility (e.g., skate park, BMX area, or paintball area), or incidental City park maintenance/operations facilities.

The 30-day comment period for the Notice of Preparation (NOP) for the former Gun Range started on Thursday, April 30, 2009 and ended on Monday, June 1, 2009.
