The Proposed Project is a City-initiated capital improvement project to widen
Orangewood Avenue from a five-lane roadway to a six-lane divided facility to provide expanded bicycle and pedestrian access from the Santa Ana River to just east of State Route 57 (SR-57) at the SR-57/Orangewood Avenue interchange. The Proposed Project would also include a water pipe line connection in Orangewood Avenue right-of-way, generally beginning at Rampart Street and ending to the east at Eckhoff Street. In addition, the Proposed Project includes a change to the jurisdictional boundaries between the City of Anaheim and the City of Orange, west of the western levee of the Santa Ana River, north and south or Orangewood Avenue. This proposed reorganization includes amendments to the Anaheim General Plan, Anaheim Zoning Map, and PTMLUP, and other related documents to reflect the new City boundary and potential future use of the affected property.
