“The roads in the surrounding Brea, La Habra, Placentia, [and] Anaheim are so nice,” Teresa Denker, a Fullerton resident, wrote on social media. “Fullerton is like another country.”
Residents on a community Facebook page complained about the city’s lack of inattentiveness to the roads which they claim are damaging vehicles.
Denker further urged residents to bring the issue to the city council.
Chris Campell, another resident, added, “Any time you cross city limits out of Fullerton, you can tell by the roads. Brea roads are so kept up and Fullerton streets are 3rd world conditions.”
Bonnie Stead, a Fullerton resident, has inquired about the city fixing potholes and cracks on her street. While Stead anticipated an optimistic result, the city employee that came out to the residential area tagged a couple of potholes but did not fix them, she said.
“He said the city has no money to fix the street correctly,” Stead wrote. “If you drive over Rosecrans in Fullerton, the street is bad.”
Other residents slightly joked regarding the city roads stating it was a key consideration prior to moving to the city.
“When we considered moving to Fullerton, we took this into account,” E.J. Heck wrote. “The roads are not hurting property value. Just the shocks and struts on my wife’s care that I have to replace every year.”
While some residents voiced concerns over the city’s lack of action to fix the roads, others commented on the efforts from the city to fix the rocky roads.
“If the city is not taking care of the road issues, why is Euclid, Brookhurst, Commonwealth, and other areas in the city getting fixed,” Debra Shimaoka wrote. “I see road construction everywhere.”
The Fullerton City Council is set to meet on Nov. 2. Residents with concerns regarding the city’s infrastructure were encouraged by other residents to attend and voice their concerns.
A spokesperson for the City of Fullerton was not immediately available for comment.
