Pete Carmichael, director of Community Development for the City of Irvine, during the March Greater Irvine Chamber’sGovernment Affairs Committee meeting, brought business and community leaders up to date on One Irvine, the city’s community reinvestment initiative, as well as new state policies and legislation impacting the city.

Through One Irvine, the city partners with the residents of older Irvine neighborhoods to identify needs, and through a Neighborhood Action Plan developed by the city, to enhance curb appeal and maintain property values.

Carmichael also addressed the traffic impact of development and steps the city is taking to address the issue, such as the possibility of incentive programs for commuters to utilize bicycle and public transportation, and how Irvine far exceeds other Orange County cites in providing diverse attainable housing options for its growing workforce.

Legislative status reports were presented during the meeting by representatives from the offices of Orange County Supervisor Donald P. Wagner, State SenatorDianne Feinstein, and Congresswoman Katie Porter.
