Mayor Statement: Possible Reversal on Homeless Issue

Monday, March 26, 2018

"The County Board of Supervisors posted on its website an agenda item that would rescind its previous action to place a tent city for as many as 400 homeless people on Irvine land that it owns next to the Great Park. Nonstop efforts by the Irvine community, City Council, and staff have had this positive effect. Fortunately, a majority of the Board of Supervisors appears to recognize that the Irvine location for its tent city is not fit for human habitation and unacceptably close to homes, schools, and parks.

"The City Council awaits a definitive vote by the Board on Tuesday, and remains as willing as always to help coordinate a collaborative solution to the countywide crisis of homelessness in a permanent, humane way. The City of Irvine is eager to be a part of that solution."
