About One Irvine

One Irvine is a neighborhood revitalization program that connects Irvine residents with community-strengthening resources and with each other. The program enhances neighborhood conditions and facilitates specific improvement projects in collaboration with residents. 

One Irvine focuses resources in Irvine's older neighborhoods to spark community-led reinvestment, and there are also opportunities for homeowners citywide. The first neighborhood to participate in the program is North El Camino Real, which includes three single family housing tracts: the Willows, Greentree, and El Camino Glen
