(Santa Ana, CA) – The County of Orange will conduct a Community Forum on September 30, 2015. The Kraemer Community Forum will be held at Eastside Christian Church located at 3330 East Miraloma Avenue, Anaheim, CA 92806 beginning at 5:30 p.m.

The Community Forum is open to the public and will be structured to give residents, businesses and other interested stakeholders the opportunity to receive additional details on the County’s best practice shelter plan, which includes operational and management guidelines as well as public safety and security strategies. After a panel presentation, the public will be invited to submit comments and ask questions.

On June 2, 2015, the Orange County Board of Supervisors approved a purchase and sale agreement for 1000 N. Kraemer Place, Anaheim. The action began a due- diligence process, including environmental site assessments, and structural and physical inspections. The California Environmental Quality Act review process was also initiated. Community Forums are also a component of the due diligence process.

Eastside Christian Church 3330 East Miraloma Avenue Anaheim, CA 92806

No vote(s) or formal action will be taken at this meeting. Any future change in use of the Kraemer site would require approval of the Orange County Board of Supervisors at a publically noticed meeting open to the public. This vote would occur after the conclusion of the County’s due diligence process, which at this point is anticipated to occur in November 2015.
