Future growth must be balanced with preservation of the quality of life of current Irvine residents. That means making sure we have the schools, roads, and other transit in place in new developments. It also means limiting development when it does not have the appropriate infrastructure, and expanding where it can, with the appropriate infrastructure.
Importantly, we must enhance housing affordability in our community so that people working here and their families can continue to do so. The Irvine Community Land Trust must be expanded on as well as other avenues for more affordable housing in Irvine.
