Great Park Update: We're Creating a Truly Great Park!

We're fulfilling the promise of a truly Great Park!  We've made amazing progress, but there's more to do, including museums, botanical gardens, and a veterans cemetery.


As anyone who has followed the history of the Orange County Great Park knows, its development has not always been smooth or something to be proud of.

In fact, for far too many years, the Great Park was  a symbol of gross mismanagement and government gone very wrong, with  allegations of corruption and massive waste, and with  little to nothing to show for the expenditure of hundreds of millions of public dollars except a balloon, a carousel, and great expanses of dirt, dust, and debris.

However, since I have joined the Irvine City Council - and been appointed Vice Chair of the Orange County Great Park by my colleagues - we have succeeded in making a tremendous, positive turn-around in the Great Park's development.  Real, substantial, and exciting progress has been made.


As the  Orange County Register recently wrote, " If you haven't visited the Orange County Great Park - where you see that big orange balloon from Interstate 5 - in the past few years, you may be surprised by the amount of construction going on and how quickly things are getting built there."

We are now fulfilling the promise of a truly Great Park that all of us can feel proud of and enjoy!

Here are some of things we've already accomplished:
  • Groundbreaking for new Anaheim Ducks' 270,000 square-foot community ice skating and practice facility in the Great Park (largest public ice skating facility in the West).
  • Opened new 5,000-seat Championship Soccer Stadium and numerous other sports fields and facilities in the first phase of 194-acre Great Park Sports Park, the largest of its kind in Orange County - larger than Disneyland and Disney California Adventure combined.
  • Great Park Sports Complex presented with the Orange County Business Council's Turning Red Tape into Red Carpet Award for Public-Private Partnership.
  • Great Park Championship Stadium became home of Orange County Soccer Club, Orange County's only professional soccer team and official affiliate partner of the Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) of Major League Soccer (MLS). Orange County SC is a part of the United Soccer League (USL), the fastest growing Division II professional soccer league in the world comprised of 34 teams across the United States.
  • Begun construction of a 2.5 mile nature corridor at the eastern end of the park. It is intended to be a pathway for bobcats, coyotes, California gnatcatchers and other wildlife species to move safely between the Santa Ana Mountains and the coast. The corridor, accessible only to wildlife, is expected to open mid-2019.
  • 101 acres of Great Park Sports complex completed, including six new soccer/lacrosse fields; a natural turf flex field that can accommodate four additional soccer fields, four basketball courts available for drop-in use, and more.


At our July 24, 2018, Irvine City Council meeting, the Great Park's Interim Director, Pete Carmichael, presented us with the latest Great Park Progress Report, which  I want to share with you.
Construction Updates:
  • Sports Park Phases 3 and 4: expected turnover September, 2018.
  • Bee and Bosque Trail Areas: awaiting turnover by partner FivePoint.
  • Ice Complex: opening expected by end of 2018.
  • Western Sector Street Improvements: construction in progress; phase 1 completion expected Fall 2018.
Forward Planning Updates:
  • Cultural Terrace: FivePoint contracting for Phase 2 consultants.
  • Cultural Terrace: Preliminary tenant outreach.
  • Cultural Terrace: parking plan developed to include parking stalls, entrance plaza and landscaping.
  • Water Park: CEQA studies in progress.
  • Water Park: land appraisal underway.
  • Water Park: new lease terms coming to City Council next month (August).
Further Updates and News:
  • Championship Soccer Stadium has held 17 tournaments; played 112 games; hosted 75 teams; and has had attendance of 95,625.
  • Soccer Fields have held 18 tournaments; 11,750 practices; 4,818 games; hosted 6,330 teams, and has had attendance of 411,330.
  • Upcoming Soccer Events: GSAC Conference Championships; NAIA National Championships.
  • Tennis Center has held 884 tournaments; 722 league matches, and given 1,745 lessons.
  • Movies on the Lawn Series: more than 9,000 visitors.
  • OC Steam Fest: 5,000 visitors.
  • UCI Anti-Cancer Walk: 3,500 visitors.
Up Next:
  • Opening of Baseball and Softball facilities.


Of course, there is still more to do.  As I have said, while I am proud of all that we've recently accomplished at the Great Park,  the time has come to focus on creating what should be the real jewel of the Great Park: The Cultural Terrace.  I have long been a strong advocate for botanical gardens and museums in the Great Park's Cultural Terrace.

In addition, I remain strongly committed to the creation of veterans cemetery in Irvine.  Councilmember Christina Shea and I have proposed to build a veterans cemetery in the Great Park on land now designated for a golf course

This proposal would be both cost-saving and time-saving, and locates the veterans cemetery squarely within the Great Park and the former Marine Air Base, yet not next to neighborhoods and schools.

The proposal does not involve a land exchange, and the location of the cemetery would not open other areas to potential commercial development, add additional homes, or cause any increase in traffic.

Click  HERE to read the proposal.

As you can see, we've accomplished a lot.  I am very proud of our residents, our city staff, and our community partners for all we've done so far, and I look forward to continuing to fulfill the promise of a truly Great Great Park!

Irvine City Councilmember Melissa Fox Speaks at Great Park Fire Station Dedication Ceremony

" This new Fire Station is a shining example of public service and of partnership."


Irvine, CA - Irvine City Councilmember and Great Park Vice Chair Melissa Fox had the honor of representing the Great Park, the Irvine City Council, and the people of Irvine at the July 19, 2018, Dedication Ceremony for the opening of the new Orange County Fire Authority Fire Station in the Great Park.

The new state-of-the-art station,  Fire Station 20 houses Battalion 10, Engine 20, Truck 20, and Hazmat 20, and locates both fire and paramedic personnel close to the Sports Complex and other Great Park features and events.

Fire Station 20 is at Ridge Valley and Corsair, in the Western Sector of the Great Park, near the new Championship Soccer Stadium and the Great Park Community Ice Facility, scheduled to open in late 2018.

In her Dedication Ceremony speech, Councilmember Fox praised firefighter heroes and the public safety partnership between the Irvine Police Department and the Orange County Fire Authority.

Councilmember Fox said:

"Good morning. Thank you for your attendance and thank you to the Orange County Fire Authority for hosting this special Dedication Ceremony. And, particularly, congratulations to Chief Brian Fennessy and Division Chief Greg McKeown.

I am honored to be here opening this incredible new station. This station is the new home of Engine 20, Truck 20, Hazmat 20 and Battalion 10.  Because of our size, Irvine has 2 battalions - Battalion 10 and Battalion 5 - with six stations in each. This station is the new home of Battalion 10.

It is also the new home of Hazmat 20.  Hazardous Materials is a common call. It may be a lab spill, a fuel spill, an unknown odor or a potentially more lethal threat like an unknown white powder or terrorist threat. We are proud that this team makes its home here, in the heart of Irvine.

These are the men and women that you want to show up when you are having the worst day of your life. They do their job with compassion and the highest professionalism.  Like many others, my family had to call 911. For about a year after that, my husband kept saying to firefighters, "Hey, I think you were the guy who saved my life." 

But really, in those turnouts, you all pretty much look alike. In his bunker gear, can barely recognize my own son. You all look like heroes to me anyway.

It was my privilege to serve as a director on the OCFA Board and I hope to have the opportunity to do so again. Because public safety is a partnership.  A partnership not just between Fire and Law Enforcement like with our Joint Hazard Assessment Team. But also between our City of Irvine, other member cities, our County, and the people we all serve.

When there is an emergency, like a wildfire, a plane crash, or a flood, we all come together: Fire, Law Enforcement, City and County Government. We have planned and trained and drilled and when we are called upon, we execute, and we do so with tremendous effectiveness. We can put together a command and communications center overnight. We can stop a wildfire burning an acre a second.  We can save homes and businesses. We can save victims of heart attacks and traffic collisions.  We can prevent drownings. We can find and rescue people in perilous conditions.

We need that same cooperation right now; the same esprit de corps, that same mission-driven thinking.

Here in Irvine we need to ask, 'How do we best serve the people we have been tasked with protecting?'

This new Fire Station is a shining example of public service and of partnership. I know that we will move forward in that spirit and continue, together, to provide the highest levels of service to our community.

Thank you."

Irvine City Councilmembers Christina Shea and Melissa Fox Seek Relocation of the Veterans Cemetery to Area Currently Planned for a Golf Course in the Great Park

Councilmembers Shea and Fox present a proposal for a veterans cemetery that is  
cost-saving and time-saving, and locates the veterans cemetery within the Great Park and the former Marine Air Base. 


IRVINE, CA - Based on the voters rejection of Measure B, Irvine City Councilmembers Christina Shea and Melissa Fox have sent a memo to the City Manager directing the City's planning staff to consider building the Orange County Veterans Cemetery to the area currently planned for a golf course in the Great Park.

Councilmembers Shea and Fox's proposal for a veterans cemetery on land now designated for a golf course is cost-saving and time-saving, and locates the veterans cemetery squarely within the Great Park and the former Marine Air Base, yet not next to neighborhoods and schools.

It does not involve a land exchange, and the location of the cemetery would not open other areas to potential commercial development, add additional homes, or cause any increase in traffic.


The proposal memo is as follows:

"As we continue to seek a site for the Veterans Cemetery, it has occurred to us and others, as mentioned July 10th at our council meeting, that the area within the Great Park planned for a golf course offers several benefits as a potential location. 

The golf course site has ample space, at about 195 acres; it is within the Great Park and in the heart of the former MCAS El Toro, honoring those who served there; it is not located adjacent to neighborhoods or schools, and it could provide multiple points of access for future visitation and processions. If up to 125 acres were to be dedicated to the Veterans Cemetery, 70 plus acres would still be available for a sm aller golf-related use, other  recreational uses and a potential for the expansion of the Organic Circle Farm, helping with annual revenues for the Great Park.

The golf course site wouldn't require the 40 million dollars demolition and remediation costs that the ARDA site requires. The golf course site has also gone thru the CEQA process. Additionally, by creating a veteran's cemetery in the heart of the Great Park, not outside the Great Park where the ARDA site is located, our Veterans would realize a true resting place inside the Great Park, where so many citizens have requested the cemetery to be developed. In lieu of a full length golf course, there may be financial savings that can be used for cemetery construction.

For the reasons outlined above, we believe this is worthy of our planning staff to add this second site to their present review and due diligence study for the City's review process of the ARDA site. This will allow staff to review this concept along with any other alternatives we may deem of value for our Veterans Cemetery."


In announcing this proposal,  Councilmember Christina Shea stated that "We are listening to our voters and we want to find what works best to create a veterans cemetery and to bring peace and civility back to our city.  We are determined to find a positive solution to provide a veterans cemetery in our city and ensure that our residents' voices are heard."

Councilmember Melissa Fox stated that "The voters have spoken. We are listening. We need to find a location for the veterans cemetery that responds to the voters' concerns. I have been a strong and consistent supporter of a veterans cemetery within the hallowed grounds of the former Marine Air Station El Toro, where so many brave men and women flew to Vietnam and other war zones, some never to come back. The Great Park is an altogether fitting and proper location for this veterans cemetery, where it would also be a lasting memorial to the Great Park's military heritage."


Woodbridge Village Center Summer Party Celebrates Big Win for the Woodbridge Community 

.
Congratulations to the Friends of Woodbridge Village Center - and to all of us who worked to ensure that Woodbridge remains one of Irvine's most beautiful communities.


A great time was had by all on Saturday, July 28, at the Woodbridge Village Center Summer Party, celebrating the beautifully revitalized Center.

The playgrounds were full of happy children, the shops and restaurants full of happy customers. There were electric bike tours of the North and South Lakes, games, music, dancing, face painting, prizes and giveaways.

At one time, it seemed that the Woodbridge Village Center might be demolished. 


In 2014, Woodbridge residents were gravely concerned that the Village Center would be replaced by new development that forever change the character of their beautiful community.  In response, a group of residents calling themselves Friends of Woodbridge Village Center formed to fight for their neighborhood.


Happily, the residents' concerns were heard.

In 2016, the Irvine Company announced plans to spend $30 million to renovate the Woodbridge Village Center.

The promised renovation is now completed - and it's spectacular!

The renovations include additional gathering and play areas for kids, expanding the courtyard dining area, and opening up a picture-postcard view of the lake.
New tenants were added, including Yogurtland, Sessions West Coast Deli and CHA for Tea, The Lost Bean cafe, Pizza Press, Rush Cycle, and Clean Juice.  

Older local-favorite tenants Barnes and Noble, Champagne French Bakery, Irvine Pedego, and the AMC Classic Woodbridge 5 theater remain.


Congratulations and thank you to the Irvine Company for listening to Woodbridge's residents and for re-investing so spectacularly in the Woodbridge Village Center!

Congratulations to the Friends of Woodbridge Village Center - and to all of us who worked to ensure that Woodbridge remains one of Irvine's most beautiful communities.


The Woodbridge Village Summer Party was a spectacular celebration of that win.

Let's continue to work together to ensure that the beauty and character of our neighborhoods are preserved in all of Irvine!

Join Councilmember Melissa Fox as "Race for the Rescues" Comes to Irvine!

The City of Irvine along with Councilmember Melissa Fox are proud to host "Race for the Rescues" on September 8, 2018, at the Great Park! 


I am a proud sponsor of this year's  Race for the Rescues!

Race for the Rescues is a "professionally timed" sporting event; not your typical dog walk in the park!  You can choose to run the 5k with your dog companion or participate in the 1k Dog Walk. 

The race will be held at the Orange County Great Park on Saturday, September 8, 2018, with registration starting at 6:30 a.m. and the races starting at 8:00 a.m.

Because animals do not have a voice. Four million cats and dogs-about one every eight seconds-are put down in U.S. shelters each year. Most of these animals die unwanted and alone.  

Race For The Rescues believes that by uniting animal lovers and animal welfare organizations to work together we can change those heartbreaking statistics and make our world a better place. 

The mission of the event is to raise awareness and funds for local animal non-profits. A number of non-profits that rescue a variety of animals, from dogs to horses, will be participating in this event to help keep their doors open. 

There will be pet adoptions, face painting, a pet psychic, giveaways, unique vendors, food trucks, and more. Prizes will be awarded to those who raise money for rescues along with finishers' medals, t-shirts, for registered racers, and special prizes for race winners and top fundraisers. The highlight of the day is the "Rockin' Adoption Show." During the show, rescue dogs will be dressed and walked down a fashion runway in hopes of finding their "furever" home. 

We hope that you will join me and be a part of this fun and life-saving event for animal rescues!


The donations raised through Race For The Rescues will be used to help save the lives of once forgotten dogs, cats and horses and help them become cherished family members. In addition, providing important programs to the community such as veterinary care for the pets of low-income families, free spay and neuture clinics and a shelter intervention program. 

Please join us to run, walk, shop or adopt! Or be there in spirit by registering for our Couch Potato race or making a donation.

To learn more about the hosting organization you can GET ON The Rescue Train by visiting  www.TheRescueTrain.org

You can register for the race HERE and use the special Promo Code  
IRVINE for a special discount. 

If you would like information on sponsorship and vendor booths please contact Lorraine@therescuetrain.org for more information.
