The City of Irvine is celebrating its 50th anniversary of incorporation this year. Many exciting activities are planned to pay homage to these remarkable 50 years. Looks for a celebration of Irvine's past and future through engagement of partners, including businesses, educational, nonprofits, faith-based, and multicultural organizations as we create a historical timeline highlighting all the great accomplishments of Irvine.
