Zelinka said he started the dialogues as a means of helping his department meet the goals of its mission statement.
“Our mission,” Zelinka said, “is to help residents and businesses with their efforts to grow within our community in a safe, orderly and healthful manner that respects
’s heritage while sustaining opportunity for present and future generations. Fullerton
“I believe community involvement in the planning process is absolutely essential to achieving that goal, and I hope the public will take advantage of these meetings to share their ideas, issues and other information.”

The City's General Plan is being dusted off, updated, and tweaked.
I urge you to read, or at least skim over, the Draft General Plan.
This is the planning document which dictates how our City will grow and expand for the next 20-plus years. If you believe open space should be protected no matter the cost, you need to read the Plan. If you want to add a room to your home, you need to read the Plan. If you want our roads to be maintained, YOU NEED TO READ THE PLAN.
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY...
If experience has taught us nothing else, it matters not what you SAY but rather what you DO. And I know what we say at these public meetings and forums DOESN'T ALWAYS MAKE IT INTO THE DOCUMENT THAT IS BEING APPROVED. You wouldn't sign a contract without reading it and this General Plan is a contract for managing every aspect of our City. Make sure YOUR concerns are addressed.
In my opinion, this is the single most important document in the City of Fullerton. I have been reviewing it for several weeks and still haven't fully grasped the long-term implications of accepting the Plan as drafted. I need your help and would appreciate your input. I'm sure the City's Planning Department would also appreciate your input. Please tell your family and friends to attend the Director's Community Dialogue.
