Ad Hoc State Veterans Cemetery Committee

Background
On March 11, 2014, the Irvine City Council adopted Resolution No. 14-27, which, in part, supports the passage of AB 1453 to establish a Southern California Veterans Cemetery in Orange County and expressed the City Council’s interest in providing land to develop a State veterans cemetery. Subsequently, the City Council voted to establish an Ad Hoc State Veterans Cemetery Committee. 

Purpose
The Irvine Ad Hoc State Veterans Cemetery Committee was formed to evaluate potential sites for a State veteran’s cemetery and to develop and provide recommendations to the City Council. The Ad Hoc Committee was also tasked to discuss affordable housing opportunities for military veterans.
