Sunshine Ordinance Guide to Community Meetings

What you need to know about your early outreach community meetings

The Santa Ana City Council encourages public input as early in the planning process as possible. To accomplish this, selected development projects require two (2) in-person community meetings during the administrative development project review portion of the application process.

It is important to hear from the community and address their concerns early in the development project review process. The purpose of these meetings is for you to explain the proposal to residents and receive their input.

Project applicants are responsible for arranging and conducting the meetings.

These meetings should accomplish the following things:

  • Establish a positive dialog between the development team and the community
  • Allow for project modifications early in the process
  • Avoid delays during public hearings due to neighborhood concerns
