Please note: City Hall is now open to the public, which aligns with the State of California’s move to “Beyond the Blueprint for a Safer Economy” and the full reopening of business sectors. Those who wish to attend City Council meetings may now do so in-person. However, in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19 and known variants, face masks are required, regardless of vaccination status.
In an effort to protect public health and prevent the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), the City of Irvine also provides the public opportunities to view City Council meetings on television or online instead of attending in person. The meeting is broadcast live on ICTV, Cox Communications Local Access Channel 30 and AT&T U-Verse Channel 99, and livestreamed online at cityofirvine.org/ictv. Members of the public who wish to comment on matters before the City Council, in lieu of doing so in person, may participate via “Zoom,” submit comments via “e-comment,” which will be provided to the City Council as part of the City Council meeting record and will be uploaded to the City’s website.
