Orange County Supervisors Take First Step in Acquisition

On Tuesday September 29, 2009 the Orange County Board of Supervisors took the first step in the initial process of approving the acquisition of the Irvine Companies wishes to give to the county. The board unanimously authorized a "letter of intent" to be sent to the Irvine Company. This will begin a 6 month period of analysis of the project and preparation acquisition of the land.

There are some concerns with the project that need to be address, specifically what portion of the $50 million pledge, made by the Donald Bren Foundation for maintenance and management of all Irvine Co. ranch lands, would remain available for the maintenance of the parkland is uncertain.
