How do the outside vendor prices compare to the design center prices?

The Taylor Morrison DC I didn't even ask about the shutters so not sure. Since golden west does the shutters for some of the builders including TM the golden west guy said there is a 50% markup so he quoted me around $6500 so through DC must be at least $10k

I am not sure if NP gates are open all the time.  I doubt you can just walk past the guard on the pedestrian.  You probably will need some sort of key fob.  Does anyone know?
According to someone, pedestrian access is open to all Irvine gated communities.
I can't comment on NP, but that is not the case in the gated community I live in.

According to the Irvine Company (last I heard, at least), nothing has been decided relative to the center.  I know that the community really wants to see the center rejuvenated, which would be great.  I've heard from numerous Woodbridge residents that they are working together to develop a viable solution to present to the Irvine Company.  With any luck, the community and the Irvine Company as a team can develop a plan to 1) restore the center to bring it back to that once fantastic center for the community and 2) make it profitable for the Irvine Company.  How great would that be?   :D

We've witnessed over the last month or so - by an enormous margin - the most pathetic display of political campaigning BS ever in Irvine.  It's a shame we don't have a better, untainted selection of candidates.  Agran, well... he's Agran.  And Choi, he's best described by all those around him as the perfect puppet, one easily controlled by puppet master Lalloway and his side-kick Shea (who, by the way, absolutely despise each other). 

So you have the Slow Growth Team claiming they want to slow things down a bit.  Personally, I like this.  Traffic here in Irvine has gone from paradise to hell in the last several years, which really must suck for those who drive every day.  Our schools are overcrowded, air quality is going down along with the quality of life.  But....can you believe these guys?  It's the Agran team and Agran, well....he's Agran.  And yes, most of the high density crap currently built was approved under Agran (but also approved under Shea and Choi as well).

Then you have the Choi/Lalloway/Schott team.  What platform are they even running on?  The only thing I've seen from their camp is disgusting smear BS.  Have they said anything positive?  What do they support other than their $1.2 million GP audit?  I've seen a lot coming from Shea, claiming they support the "Master Plan" and retail centers, but pretty much everything I've seen from Choi/Lalloway/Shea is on the contrary.  The fact (well, can't say fact because they'll never officially reveal this) that their campaign pockets are being stuffed by developers certainly suggests that their loyalty and concern is not supporting the community's interest.  And personally, I wouldn't trust Choi and far as I can throw him, which actually at times I feel I could have thrown him pretty far, so maybe I should rephrase that.   :)

We can all argue about who's the best for the job.  But one thing for sure, our City Council is broken; it's a dysfunctional mess.  Anyone who doubts this, feel free to sit in one of the council meetings; it's a joke.  Who do you pin this on?  Well, isn't Mayor the top dog?

I think we can all conclude that the whole thing is screwed up.   Personally, I'm not against or for "growth".    I think growth can be good if is done right.  Personally, I don't traffic is significantly better or worse than before.  I think there is a lot of construction and road fixing but once those are done, traffic is pretty good.  Even the area around Sand Canyon/5 has cleared up pretty nicely.  They could do a better job of the aligning the lanes though, that left turn off the Southbound 5 exit on to Sand Canyon is a recipe for disaster.

I'm a Democrat so voting for a GOP candidate does not make me very happy...I think Agran has "lost his chance" and Choi should be allowed a little more time to do what he believe needs to be done.  Honestly, I don't expect anything really to change in the next 2 to 4 years.
