Community Tours of State Veterans Cemetery Proposed Locations

Friday, June 14, 2019

Last July, the Irvine City Council directed staff to study two City-owned properties – the Amended and Restated Development Agreement (ARDA) site and the Golf Course site, located in the Orange County Great Park, for the location of the long-awaited and highly anticipated Southern California Veterans Cemetery. Both properties are within the historic boundaries of the former El Toro Marine Corps Air Station (El Toro MCAS). There is broad consensus this cemetery is needed and should be within these historic boundaries.

The City is offering public tours of both sites to allow the community an opportunity to visit each location and to see and learn the differences between the ARDA and the Golf Course Site in person. 

Tour dates and times will be announced in the coming weeks.
