“This master plan... epitomizes Irvine’s spirit of hospitality, making sure that this park is truly a place of relaxation, recreation and renewal of spirit for all.”
That was Irvine Planning Commission Chairwoman Mary Ann Gaido, quoted by The Register on yesterday’s big news on the Great Park. The Great Park Master Plan has been approved by the Irvine Planning Commission. Apparently, the commission liked the 2.5-mile-long canyon, botanical gardens, the sports park, the wildlife corridor, the museums, and that lovely 23-acre lake.
So what are YOU thinking about the Great Park? Do you like the idea of a 2.5-mile-long canyon? Are you happy about the wildlife corridor? What do you want to see in the botanical gardens? And is this all what you were hoping for when Measure W passed in 2002?
Since the Great Park will be Orange County’s park, I’d like to get a better idea of what Orange County is thinking about the park. So go ahead. Make my day. Fire away!
