"Huntington Beach has always been about livable neighborhoods and vibrant businesses. That's why the Council approved the Magnolia Tank Farm project in the western edge of the city. From the coastal-themed visitor accommodations to its desirable affordable and market rate residential offerings, this project is quintessentially Huntington Beach. It will also create new coastal public access and vistas while ensuring greater preservation and protection of our precious sensitive natural resources."
Former Mayor Barbara Delgleize,
City of Huntington Beach
"The Magnolia Tank Farm project is a model by which we can compare future development and land use applications. Just like the rest of the State, Orange County is facing an ongoing crisis in housing availability. To meet this obligation, our County must accommodate almost 184,000 new housing units in a matter of years. I have full confidence in our local and regional planning authorities and our flood control infrastructure to protect existing and future developments to meet our Regional Housing Needs Assessment obligations."
