Should Huntington Beach annex the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve?
The city council will consider how to approach that issue at its meeting tonight (Tuesday).
Councilmember Dan Kalmick has raised the issue and is asking for an update of previous feasibility studies about absorbing the Bolsa Chica wetlands into the city. The area is currently incorporated county territory, but is surrounded by Huntington Beach.
“With the incorporation of Sunset Beach and Brightwater,” wrote Kalmick in a memo on the issue, “ the annexation … would essentially complete the city’s corporate boundary. More importantly, the wetlands and uplands are ecological and tourist resources that would complement the diverse portfolio of amenities that help to make Huntington Beach a destination location.”
The council will meet in a virtual format via Zoom webinar. For members of the public wishing to comment in person, the council chambers will be open for that purpose.
A study session/closed session is scheduled for 4 p.m. and the regular meeting for 6 p.m.
