LETTERS to the EDITOR
Dear Editor: Twenty-six years ago, a small
Christian college in the City of Orange requested an expansion of a building on-site with a maxi- mum capacity of 2,500 students. The Orange City Council was cautious in approving the request because of citizen complaints about traffic, parking and riotous behavior of students. Throughout the years, Chap-
man has dramatically expand- ed its student population and land-use holdings, well beyond its relatively simple request in 1988. Utilizing the original En- vironmental Impact Report for
the seventh time, the University is now requesting a multitude of new building construction across the city, including an increase in student enrollment to 11,560 stu- dents within the next 10 years. Chapman has become a city
within a city, constraining our city services, and impacting our park- ing ability and traffic circulation through our narrow streets. The long ago complaints of residents about traffic, parking and riot- ous behavior of students is still a major complaint, not just in Old Towne, but also across our entire city. When asked, Chapman rep- resentatives replied that they have no record of where their students live!
New Orange planning commissioner appointed
Doug Willits has taken the reins
as planning commissioner for the City of Orange. Willits has deep roots in Orange, having originally moved from Michigan to attend Chapman College in 1969. He graduated in 1972, but never left his newly-adopted hometown. Willits owned and managed
several electronics industry com- panies, and for the past eight
years has been a broker associate with Ricci Realty. His wife Su- sie recently retired after 20 years of teaching in Orange. Their two children attended Orange schools, and both graduated from Chapman University. He was appointed by Council-
man Mark Murphy to replace Pat Buttress, who resigned from the planning commission in May.

as the 2015 Small Business of the Year from the 37th Senate District by the California Small Business Association at a celebration lun- cheon in Sacramento attended by Senator John Moorlach and other county dignitaries. Founded in 1987 by Chef Zov
Karamardian and her husband Gary, what began as Zov’s Bis-

ally identifies the highest-per- forming public schools in Cali- fornia, and those consistently raising student achievement and closing the achievement gap among all students. CBEE’s Honor Roll schools program began in 2005.
Award for Zov’s
tro and Bakery in Tustin has be- come a culinary institution. It has venues in Irvine, Newport Beach, Orange County Airport and Anaheim. In addition, cook- ing classes and catering are also offered. The business is now operated
by son Armen and daughter Ta- leen Karamardian, but they can’t keep Zov out of the kitchen.
Foothills Sentry The seventh rendition of the
Environmental Impact Report to make changes to the Chap- man University Specific Plan will arrive for public comment in the fall. Residents need to be involved in fully understanding all of the university’s 16 requests and take action -- or we will lose our identity as a desirable com- munity.

things about Orange and Villa Park, coupons for Pacific Ranch Market, info on the Enderle Cen- ter concerts (which we can walk to) and lots of other pertinent lo- cal deals and information useful and informative. Unfortunately, for the past couple of years or so, we’ve stop receiving the paper. We thought it went away until we recently found one at a business and brought it home, realizing we miss it! Please – can you consider re-
adding our neighborhood to the distribution area? And, how do I find a list of places to TRY to get it myself? Thank you for the consider-

Ed note: The Foothills Sentry may be found at local businesses, civic centers and libraries. See Sentry rack in photo at right.
Finding an extra copy of the Foothills Sentry should be easier now that five new racks have been placed around town. Look for two in the Pacific Ranch Market center, two in Old Towne Orange and another at Enderle Center.
