At its March 1, 2022 meeting, the Huntington Beach City Council withdrew its previous approval of the Edison Park Conceptual Plan and asked city staff and the park planning team at RJM Design Group to conduct further community outreach and analysis of the site plan. The City encourages residents to learn more about the Edison Park Conceptual Plan and provide feedback at the project website.
The City would like to create greater community consensus before moving on to further environmental analysis. The goal is to identify specific park improvements that will be embraced by Huntington Beach residents.
Over the next few months, RJM will provide an aerial topographic and field survey. Arborgate Consulting, a tree specialist, will measure and evaluate every tree at Edison Park for health and condition. A report and tree plan will be prepared with recommendations for replacements for any diseased trees that may pose a public safety threat due to limb breakage and root failure. The plan will also identify a plan for protecting all healthy trees.
The City and its consulting team will reach out to community stakeholders through mailers, social media, posters, email newsletters, and news postings, like this one, through the end of May. The studies of the trees and the field survey will take place in May with an initial report prepared for June. Community meetings will be conducted in July followed by online public opinion research surveys.
