Protesting a Veteran's cemetery... Way to represent Irvine to the world!

BTW, is this substantiated? Anecdotes from PP are such that the demographic is diverse, not concentrated:

Quote
At the same time, FivePoint Communities, the developer of thousands of homes around the park, has been concerned about how the cemetery would impact home sales. They are planning to sell most of their units to buyers from Asia, and a cemetery near the neighborhood is considered bad feng shui.

It may not be "concentrated" but I would imagine that a significant portion of the buyers are Asian.

This.  I think if it was just a regular commercial cemetery planned, a protest might gain some traction.  But protesting a Veteran's Cemetery and Memorial...I could see that being viewed as unAmerican and disrespectful to ppl that have lost their lives in service for our country, especially since the Great Park is supposed to be for all of Orange County, not just Irvine.  What is some FOB going to say when a reporter puts a microphone in front of his face asking why he's protesting a Veteran's memorial?

I don't think there will protests...I do think it's going to hurt 5 Points' ability to sell to FOBs and oversea buyers.  Regardless of "proximity", it's going to be bad press.  Same issue with Baker's Ranch.

But hashtags can be misspelled for "cool" reasons right? You know... like #valuvlg instead of #valuevillage?

personally i like cemeteries. it adds a unique feel to the area. I think there is no better use of toxic land.

You're right, probably better than the massive park originally planned.
Less liability anyway.  #deadmencantsue

I guess it depends on where the cemetery is going to be located.

If the decision made by the City Council last night stands, this is a great decision by Irvine. Irvine is a great city, which needs to remember the many veterans who fought and sacrificed for the freedom this country benefits from and oftentimes forgets.

Families and veterans deserve a wonderful place to pay their respects and we can all learn by visiting a place of such honor. Let us unite as residents of Irvine to support those who have fought to support and protect us.

I have a suggestion/proposal have a wonderful cemetary in Riverside. No one wants to live by a cemetary.

But the bottom line is that a cemetery can potentially decrease surrounding property value.  A city like Irvine with new home sales supported by a large contingent of Chinese buyers will be affected.  Is it fair for Great Park homeowners to shoulder the risk?  We all want to support vets, but in the end it comes down to money:  if my home is going to depreciate or not appreciate as much, I will vote against the cemetery. 

Unfortunately the wants of the majority will overturn the needs of the few. 

So where's the site?  Near the 5th HS mentioned in the OC Register articles?
