Greater Irvine Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Bryan Starr shares the key driver behind Irvine’s economic success.
More than half of The Irvine Ranch – 57,500 acres of open space – has been set aside for preservation and education.
Since 2005, Irvine home values have appreciated 77%, while values in the rest of Orange County appreciated 22%. An economist attributes Irvine’s success to good schools, parks and balanced communities.
A comparison of 182 cities singled out Irvine as the best place to raise a family in Southern California – and as No. 3 in America.
