A resolution of the City Council of the City of Irvine, California, designating that the Golf Course Site is hereby designated as the preferred site for development of the Southern California State Veterans Cemetery.

  • That the City Manager, with the assistance of the City Attorney, shall immediately begin negotiations with the State of California on an agreement to transfer the Golf Course Site to the State of California, at no cost, once the State provides binding assurances to the City that there are sufficient funds available to remediate the entire site and to complete Phase 1 of the Southern California Veterans Cemetery (Transfer Agreement). 
  • That the Transfer Agreement must be approved by the City Council at a properly noticed public meeting, after receiving a recommendation from the Board of Directors of the Orange County Great Park Corporation, before any City officer has authority to execute the Transfer Agreement. 
  • That the City Manager, with the assistance of the City Attorney, shall take all steps necessary to, contingent on approval of the Transfer Agreement, remove Heritage Fields' right and obligation under the ALA II to construct a golf course at the Orange County Great Park, and in its place secure a commitment that Heritage Fields will contribute $18,000,000 toward the construction of the Southern California Veterans Cemetery on the Golf Course Site. 
  • That City of Irvine staff shall initiate all necessary revisions to the entitling documents for the Orange County Great Park to facilitate the development of a State Veterans Cemetery on the Golf Course Site. 
  • That City Council Resolution 14-27, City Council Resolution 14-92, City Council Resolution 17-39, and all prior policy statements of the City Council with regard to the siting of a Veterans Cemetery in the City of Irvine are hereby rescinded, and replaced with and superseded in full by this Resolution.

We are making good on a promise to deliver the Southern California Veterans Memorial Park and Cemetery with a bi-partisan plan that respects our veterans and taxpayers. As our patient veterans organizations have been saying, we are finally on the path to ‘get this done!’

Orange County Grand Jury Oct 8th, 2019

By December 31, 2019, in the event that both the City of Irvine and the Orange County Cemetery District seek to pursue a veterans cemetery, the Grand Jury recommends that a joint City of Irvine and OCCD Veterans Cemetery Selection Committee be established that includes a representative of the Board of Supervisors to determine which of the respective sites will be endorsed.

The recommendation requires further analysis. The City has identified the Golf Course Site as the preferred location for the Southern California Veterans Cemetery, has worked with the California legislature to revise Assembly Bill 368 to allow for construction of the cemetery on the Golf Course Site, and has identified significant resources toward the construction of the cemetery. The City is also aware that (i) on September 10, 2019 an effort was made by a State Senator to amend Assembly Bill 368 to allow for the potential development of the Southern California Veterans Cemetery at the Gypsum Canyon Site, but that amendment was not integrated into the Bill, (ii) the forecasted cost of development of a cemetery at the Gypsum Canyon site is more than $250,000,000. As a result, the the Gypsum Canyon Site faces significant development schedule and cost disadvantages when compared to the Golf Course Site. While the City is open to discussions with OCCD, it does not want those discussions to cause any delays in the implementation of the Southern California Veterans Cemetery at the Golf Course Site.

Orange County Grand Jury Oct 8th, 2019

By November 30, 2019, the Irvine City Council should decide which, if any, site within its borders to pursue for a veterans cemetery. Site selection efforts should validate the cost and valuation information.

Christina Shea Oct 8th, 2019

The recommendation has been implemented. On July 23, 2019 the Irvine City Council voted to designate the Golf Course site as the preferred location for the Southern California Veterans Cemetery.
