Fireworks set off on July second and third fill the air with tension and smoke. It is annoying and sometimes downright scary. The sounds are so similar to gunshots we can’t tell the difference.

keep it cool this weekend!​ Fullerton Opens Colling Center at Community Center

In response to continued high temperatures that are expected to reach over 100 degrees in the coming days, the City of Fullerton has designated the Community Center as a "Cooling Center." 

The “Cooling Center” will be activated on Sunday, June 19 and Monday, June 20 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and will be available to all residents. 

The Fullerton Community Center is located at 340 W. Commonwealth Avenue across the street from Fullerton City Hall.

    It’s been four years since the university “threw the switch” for a photovoltaic installation on the rooftops of the Clayes Performing Arts Center, the Kinesiology and Health Science Building and the Eastside Parking Structure. That 1.16 megawatt installation produces electricity equivalent to eliminating 5,180 passenger vehicles from the road annually and will do so over the next 25 years, saving the campus approximately $9 million in utility savings, said Willem Van der Pol, interim associate vice president for facilities planning and management.
