Our Gang,

How would you suggest the ARDA site be funded so we are successful in honoring our veterans?

Monumental Strawberry Field was funded and would have been operational by now. Golf Course was funded, but the delays of the initiative process caused that to vanish before it could be used (see quotes from SQS and Archeleta). No state or private sector (FivePoint) contributions remain available. All gone like a fart in the wind.

The CalVet OWEN report - the only 'approved plan' says: "Phase 1 - Part 1- Site Preparation and Demolition (125 acres): Phase 1 of the Project will include the demolition of the entire 125 acre site. Demolition includes existing buildings, foundations, floors, floor slabs, concrete, and asphalt. The demolition also includes the removal of underground utilities."

No matter, Ed's junk preservation amusement park has no plan that any 'approving agency' has ever reviewed.

However it can only be a city park, you know. Ed's push for his initiative to be promptly adopted cut off the AB368 provision for a CalVet  analysis and site selection. Last year's AB368 is now gutted. No site selection was completed. No site was officially designated. Do your homework.

How your  beautiful city ARDA  preservation amusement park, air museum and large antenna display will be funded is now up to your Army Veteran and retired teacher of the year Ed Pope, Chair of your Build the Great Park Cemetery committee. Ask him. Ed Pope only needs some chunk of $90 million for phase one (of 10 sequential phases) so they can begin later this year.

He'll be looking into your City/Great Park budget with his hand out.

Be generous Irvine. This is what you wanted. 4.3% of your population spoke up.

Be generous in Depression Era? That’s a good laugh.

How about Larry Agran and his gangs who fought all these years against the Irvine city start an online crowdfunding, Maybe gather more signatures for donation at every stores front in Irvine will be next. Just a suggestion.

Larry says:  Our Mayor and City Council should start transforming the Great Park ARDA site right now.  Specifically, before working out an agreement to transfer the property to the State, the Mayor and City Council should order the demolition of abandoned buildings and structures on the ARDA site — restoring the property by clearing the site and cleaning up the land. According to City staff, this could begin within the next 60 days.  .... In addition, City officials should order the expedited planning and implementation — within one year — of a system of beautiful trees and trails along the entire 2-mile perimeter of the ARDA site, just as the Initiative provides.

You'll pay Irvine. Shoulda done your homework and read thru that initiative.

Well, if the funds should be available, but I doubts Irvine voters voted for willingly know that it would raise their tax and the funds was once available from 5points should we had gone with the first deal at the strawberry farm then the tax payers would not be on the hook for this. Now, Irvine is pushing back to the ARDA site because the funds disappear like a fart in the winds as you mention. Larry, now that you put so much efforts in moving it to where you want, come up with the funds, if not it will lingers for decades. NOTHING GET BUILD VETERAN CEMETERY.

I agree...so much money was put into campaign signs and petition signing so the same money should become the start of public donations for cemetery.

Twice now the Irvine voter was presented a fully funded Veterans Cemetery, located with all due consideration to the desires and concerns of Irvine's schools and diverse communities.

Twice now the voters spoke for the unfunded and most offensive site. 

The voice of the people after listening to Ed Pope's Irvine veterans.

Build it in the Inland Empire or Bakersfield and call it a day.
