For our first-time readers, welcome to Irvine Community News & Views ICNV is Irvine’s free community newspaper, published in hard-copy format at the beginning of each month – with frequent updates and added features available to our online subscribers.

This month includes an important feature about Irvine’s Animal Care Center – its troubles and its future.  The story is followed by our Irvine Community Poll asking for your opinions and comments.

You can also find our community calendar that will help you find your way to some of the more worthwhile attractions and events in Irvine — including many that are free or low-cost.

Our Open Forum — with Community Voices — provides a real insight into what your Irvine neighbors are thinking.
