Satiago Creek Trail - February 1, 2001

Area 1 – Orange/Santa Ana boundary to the 55 Freeway
Meeting Notes

The City of Orange held the first in a series of public meetings intended to solicit comments from the community regarding a trail along the section of Santiago Creek extending from the Orange/Santa Ana boundary to the 55 Freeway. This trail will be one of the components of a future greenway plan, which will also study potential open space and floodway enhancements along the creek. Attendees were encouraged to identify their interests and concerns as they relate to the trail and greenway proposed in this area. The City will consider this input as it moves forward in planning and designing the trail and greenway.
