Finance Commission Agenda – Veterans Cemetery
Southern California Veterans Cemetery on the Finance Commission Agenda
November 19, 2018, 5:30 pm, City Hall
The Finance Commission is scheduled to hear a report on the two sites being considered in Irvine for the Southern California Veterans Cemetery (SCVC):
- The ARDA site
- The future golf course site located within the OC Great Park.
Based on Councilmembers Fox and Shea’s recommendation, the Planning Commission authorized a due diligence study that includes cost estimates, financial impacts and potential sources of funds for both sites. Here is the LINK to the Staff Report prepared at the direction of the Planning Commission.
The report also includes a traffic evaluation for both sites. This traffic study will be presented to the Transportation Commission on Tuesday, November 20, 2018, for their input.
The Finance Commission is being asked to provide input on the potential funding sources for both sites. The report was prepared by the Public Works and Administrative Services Departments. This is the only item on the agenda.
