Water polo, indoor volleyball/basketball, and parking in the Western Sector of the Great Park
The Great Park Board and City Council have long-envisioned state-of-the-art Olympic- class water polo and indoor volleyball/basketball facilities in the Western Sector of the Orange County Great Park. Both facilities meet the needs of Irvine’s vibrant sports communities, and will expand the scope of recreational opportunities at the Great Park. The “fieldhouse” will serve local needs for indoor recreation, while also hosting regional and super-regional tournaments and events. The water polo facility will provide an additional dedicated pool for City use, meeting the significant demand for pool time stemming from Irvine’s swimming community, and serve as a regional and super-regional site for competitions. The water polo and indoor volleyball/basketball facilities are planned for construction adjacent one another, and near the planned parking structure.
Home At Last: Honoring Our Veterans With A Veterans Cemetery In Orange County
At present, Orange County is the most populous county in the state without a veterans cemetery, with approximately 115,000 veterans in residence. Five years have elapsed since discussions began to open a State Veterans Administration Cemetery in Orange County. The closest cemetery for veterans, with space available, is Riverside National Cemetery. There is a growing interest in, and demand for, an Orange County veterans cemetery. Veterans groups and other Orange County residents have become frustrated that progress towards opening a veterans cemetery in Orange County has been hindered by political infighting. The continued lack of progress in the negotiation between the relevant entities and a lack of general understanding of the underlying issues by Orange County residents, prompted the 2018- 2019 Orange County Grand Jury (Grand Jury) to conduct an investigation to gather information for the benefit of Orange County residents.
