Mayor & Council Majority Refuse to Support Councilmember Agran’s Request to Establish Great Park Residents’ Advisory Committee
On July 27th, the Great Park Board of Directors — consisting of all five Irvine City Councilmembers — refused to support Councilmember Larry Agran's request to establish a Great Park Residents Advisory Committee.
Homeowners in the Great Park Neighborhoods pay among the highest property taxes in Irvine, including special assessments paid into the Community Facilities District. Their taxes and assessments help fund multi-million-dollar amenities and operations at the Great Park. However, these homeowners have had virtually no say in how their taxes are being spent.
Mayor Khan and Councilmembers Kim, Kuo and Carroll also dismissed Agran's alternative suggestion that the Board allot at least 15 minutes of each meeting to hear from homeowners.
