The City Council is Set to Vote on Massive Development Projects at the Great Park … Without Any Input from the City’s Planning Commission or Irvine Residents Who Will be Impacted

Pereira’s remarkable “Irvine Master Plan” led to the creation of one of California’s most desirable cities, and arguably the best-planned community in America. However, Mayor Farrah Khan and her appointed Vice Mayor Anthony Kuo are systematically unraveling our City’s Master Plan — ignoring Irvine’s long history of good planning and good government. Khan and Kuo are effectively giving away valuable land for massive commercial development in our Great Park.

The UC Townhomes and Philadelphia’s affordable housing struggle, explained.

Letter: Carson Does Not Work for Davis

I hope District 1 voters agree that Dan Carson has not earned a second term on the City Council. If you were for a Davis Innovation and Sustainability Center (Measure H), then you should know Dan Carson’s lawsuit, against fellow Davis residents opposed to Measure H, (a lawsuit which Carson technically lost), was such an obvious attack on Davis civil engagement that the lawsuit alone sunk Measure H.

Milias: United We Stand

In a small town known for its political squabbles and petty arguments, today we are more united than ever — united in discontent. There perhaps has never been a time when the community has shared such a palpable sentiment stemming from numerous ignorant and ill-conceived decisions by our local government. The discontent manifests itself in different ways to different constituencies, but the City Council has been nothing if not consistent in its ability to negatively impact just about everyone.

The Race Is on for Goleta City Council

As if in celebration of its 20th birthday, Goleta actually has two contested races for City Council seats. In the past, too often there would only be one candidate running without any opposition. Even after a voting rights violation lawsuit was threatened in 2017, one of the arguments against district elections was questioning whether enough people would step forward to have meaningful contests. The answer, today, is yes.

Vote 'yes' to add Worcester into state Community Preservation Act

No matter your age, background or income level, people everywhere share a common desire – to live in a place that is healthy, beautiful and welcoming to all.
