For the first time in Orange County, seven cities – La Habra, Buena Park, Anaheim, Stanton, Garden Grove, Westminster, Huntington Beach – announced “Meet on Beach,” a community festival set to reimagine Beach Boulevard on Sunday, November 17 from the “Renew Beach Boulevard Coalition,” a new alliance dedicated to transforming the 21-mile historic corridor.
“We are so pleased to be leading a seven-city coalition focused on the revitalization of the iconic Beach Boulevard through Orange County,” said Joel Rosen, Director of Community Development for the City of Buena Park. “During Meet on Beach, Orange County residents will have the chance to experience the boulevard like never before. Through partnerships and community engagement, we hope to promote economic development and healthy communities along the historic 21-mile stretch connecting the hills to the ocean.”
Meet on Beach, presented by Go Human and the Southern California Association of Governments, is a one-day extravaganza designed to reimagine Beach Boulevard across seven Orange County cities activating their tens of thousands of residents.
