Irvine Mayor Christina L. Shea delivered her State of the City Address on Feb. 25 to a capacity crowd in the Irvine City Hall Council Chamber. Topics included sustainability, public safety, fiscal strength, and development at the Orange County Great Park.

In her address, Mayor Shea announced that the city received an award for sustainability from the California Environmental Protection Agency. The award recognized Irvine’s organic landscape policy, which reduces the use of synthetic pesticides on city property, and includes the use of goats for weed abatement and fire mitigation. Community members had a chance to learn more about the use of goats in the community during a grazing goats educational and interactive experience in the Irvine Civic Center piazza prior to the State of the City Address.

She also spoke to the unmatched quality of life in Irvine, highlighting the City’s reputation as one of the nation’s safest communities, the City Council’s continued support of Irvine’s public schools, and the vibrant business community.
