Las Palmas Business Park, is the first indoor soccer establishment approved as a result of the City’s efforts to promote physical fitness and increase recreational opportunities in the City. Councilman Vincent Sarmiento identified the need for open space and helped lead the effort to amend the zoning ordinance to allow for recreational uses in traditionally commercial areas.
Joint Use Agreements in Santa Ana are done between the City and School Districts for the purpose of using each other’s public property for the benefit of the community. Schools are located in populated areas and in walking distance for residents. To provide additional recreational open space for our community it is best to partner with the district for the use of school property as park space.
The City of Santa Ana currently waives permit and inspection fees for solar installation projects. Solar energy systems are quiet and produce clean energy with no emissions. Installing 1-kilowatt of solar power is the equivalent of planting 50 trees, which helps keep the air clean. Solar technology reduces the need to generate fossil-fuel based power, lowers long-term investment costs for new electric facilities, and enhances our community’s environment.
In an effort to improve transparency and open government, the City of Santa Ana now offers a video archive of Council Meetings starting January 4, 2011.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Office of the Clerk of the Council during regular business hours at 714-647-6520.
