We are now focused on winning "round 2" of our fight to protect the Rancho San Joaquin golf course from development. ("Round 1" was last week's 5-0 Irvine Planning Commission vote to reaffirm the current General Plan and zoning of the RSJ golf course.)
The Irvine City Council has added an agenda item 8.6:
This agenda item is similar to what was voted upon at last week's Planning Commission meeting. We expect the City Council will vote on a similar resolution to reaffirm the General Plan so that any future application to change the zoning for the golf course property will be denied at the City Council.
Technically, a developer whose application to change the General Plan and zoning for the RSJ golf course that's denied by the Planning Commission, can appeal to the City Council for reconsideration.
That's why it's important that we have alot of supporters attend the City Council meeting:
We don't have an exact time of when the RSJ golf course agenda item will be discussed in the council meeting but everyone should arrive at City Hall no later than 6:00pm. We'll have small signs to pass out to everyone.
