"Last night, I held my first Town Hall meeting, joined by Mayor Christina Shea and over 200 residents. The topic was the proposed re-zoning of the Racquet Club of Irvine (RCI) site from commercial recreation to residential housing. We were moved by amount of citizen participation and thank everyone for attending. The path forward is clear. Today, we are placing a Resolution on August 13, 2019 City Council meeting agenda to (1) confirm there is no intent to change the General Plan or Zoning Code and (2) reaffirm that the site shall remain designated for recreation."
A memo dated July 12th detailing this decision has been issued by Councilmember Carroll and Mayor Shea, which is addressed to City Manager John Russo. The memo instructs the City Manager to place the resolution on the August 13th City Council meeting agenda. Read the memo
