Who we are

We are a group of Fullerton volunteers with a shared mission to preserve what is unique about Fullerton.


The mission of Friends for a Livable Fullerton is to influence development decisions in a way that promotes and preserves Fullerton's uniqueness and livability.


1. To improve current and future development decisions
2. To increase City responsiveness to public input

We are a group of Fullerton residents seeking solutions to the onslaught of massive developments throughout Fullerton that imperil our city's unique small-town character. Virtually no neighborhood or open space is safe from inappropriate development.

It's time to make this issue a community priority.

Our Current Projects

 Please let us know if you are interested in helping with or learning more about any of these issues.

Bastanchury Creek  Greenbelt AKA Bastanchury Tree Farm
We envision the two now-vacant city lots (formerly called Bastanchury Tree Farm) becoming a linear native plant greenbelt with specialty gardens connected by a network of trails along a restored Bastanchury Creek. This concept highlights the uniqueness of the site, is the most cost-effective, and provides a diversity of outdoor nature experiences for everyone in Fullerton.

Save Fullerton’s Heritage Trees

We advocate for the enjoyment and preservation of Fullerton’s unique and special public and private trees.

Affordable Housing and Historic Preservation

Our mission is to identify  appropriate tools and strategies to provide affordable housing while preserving and protecting historic buildings, neighborhoods, and open space, from destruction and speculation.

Hunt Branch Library

We support Save The Hunt in their mission to keep the Hunt Branch Library in the public realm for community use, and that the historic nature of the William Pereira-designed  building is respected. Please visit

Public Participation

Feeling frustrated having your voice heard? We are working on better ways for the City to include public input. 

Kimberly-Clark Orchards / Goodman Logistics

We are devastated by the destruction of the extensive and historic Valencia and avocado groves in southeast Fullerton that were home to a wide variety of wildlife, including coyotes, bees, and birds. A compromise to at least save perimeter trees, with no impact on building footprints, was scuttled. Also, the developer was allowed to use an improper baseline for air quality and greenhouse gas emissions, resulting in a missed opportunity to reduce pollution.


Fullerton's 27 miles of trails are an amazing city resource. Help us protect and improve them!  

West Coyote Hills

We support the Friends of Coyote Hills in their effort to save all of the West Coyote Hills as a nature park and preserve.

Hillcrest Park Duck Pond

We are supportive of the Korean War Memorial but are concerned that it did not undergo the required environmental study, permits, and public review.


Fullerton pedestrians deserve a safe and convenient network of sidewalks and pathways for both recreational purposes and to conduct essential daily activities. 


Safe drinking water is an essential resource.  Fullerton’s water supply is provided by 10 groundwater wells and 6 imported water connections from the Metropolitan Water District (primarily from the Colorado River and northern California’s State Water Project). 

Farmers Markets

The Fullerton Certified Farmers Market  is held every Wednesday, rain or shine, from 8am to 1 pm in the parking lot behind the Fullerton Public Library, 353 W. Commonwealth Ave. For more information call (951) 532-2822 (text preferred) .  
A certified farmers market allows you to buy fresh-picked produce directly from the grower. You will only find in-season produce grown at local farms; no warehousing, no middlemen.
