What is the Irvine Master Plan?
The Irvine Master Plan is founded on several core principles that create a balance between developed areas and open space.
City of Villages
The Master Plan is built around distinct villages, with schools, shopping facilities and parks within walking distance.
The Master Plan placed a major university, UCI, in the heart of the City, and neighborhood schools are in close proximity to the families they serve.
Abundant Parks & Open Space
The Master Plan resulted in one-third of the City being set aside for open space, parks and trails because land preservation was required for development of nearby property.
Enterprising Business Districts
Irvine’s Master Plan envisioned a vibrant business sector offering high-quality local jobs located along major transportation routes, and not in the midst of primary residential areas.
Local Retail Hubs
Local neighborhood shopping centers are conveniently located throughout Irvine and generate a huge amount of tax revenues, which helps to fund the City’s first-class police department.
The Irvine Master Plan places a priority on completing roads and other infrastructure, such as sewer and recycled-water systems, ahead of the developments they will serve.
