HUNTINGTON BEACH (AP) — Surf City USA is swallowing the 85-acre unincorporated community of neighboring Sunset Beach.
The Orange County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday unanimously approved Huntington Beach’s annexation of the coastal burg. In August, the Huntington Beach City Council voted to annex Sunset Beach.
A consultant study shows annexation is financially feasible and will bring in at least $624,000 in property, sales and occupancy taxes.
The Sunset Beach Community Association, a band of residents resisting annexation, had managed to delay what Supervisor John Moorlach called the inevitable.
