Where is the pro infrastructure pro growth group in Irvine? I want to sign up for that one.

Actually, while the Irvine for Responsible Growth initiative doesn't specifically call out "infrastructure growth" ;-) it does require the following:

"Materials reviewed by the city must include, but not be limited to: a site plan; specified project characteristics; the text proposed; a discussion of inconsistencies with existing and planned conditions; an analysis of traffic, density, land use, zoning and intensity impacts (pursuant to mandated standards); a map; and a description of certain mitigation measures;"

The goal of the initiative isn't to stop growth, but ensure that voters/residents are notified when development of a certain size is planned and that Developers and City Council accommodate for the impact to the infrastructure.

Read the summary here:  https://www.irvineliving.org/summary-of-initiative

or full text here: https://www.irvineliving.org/full-initiative

Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, and Dana Point already have similar laws in place.

What happened to Irvine for Responsible Growth? Did they fall off the planet? I haven't seen a single lawn sign advocating for a NO on Measure D.

Maybe they tried to buy a place recently, and frustrated by the lack of inventory, realized that actually we do need more housing.

I'm getting inundated by fliers for YES on B. 5Points and their PACs are going into overdrive.

I still haven't seen a SINGLE sign or flier on voting NO on D. It will be a second loss Irvine for Responsible Growth if it passes.

BTB is NO on B but he is fighting an uphill battle against 5P.

I say YES on B & C; NO on D.

Take a look at five points stock performance.
Take a look at Belly’s recommendation to buy Delano at EW and the performance relating to appreciation amount.

Who do you trust?

My comment has nothing to do with trust.  Simply a matter of $$$ being spent. Based on all the junk mail I’m receiving, the YES on B PACs are outspending the NO side by a wide margin.

As for which way I vote, it simply comes down to the issues. I throw all the fliers into the trash. A Yes vote on B is a reasonable compromise that lets all parties win.

The one thing that sickens me is how they are using veterans as a pawn (both sides).

Saying shit like "Real veterans say No on B" or "Real veterans say Yes on B".  F that.  Veterans should be happy no matter which location it ends up on.  They appreciate that they are being appreciated.  What they might not appreciate, though, is being used as pawns in a political game.  It's disgusting.  It's even more disgusting seeing the signs when driving around on Memorial Day or seeing the ads on Facebook. 

Yes, there might be a real veteran who lives in Irvine who has a biased opinion on the matter, but that guy's opinion is based on the other political issues.  The real issues are:
-More possible traffic.
-Five Points getting free money.
-People buying homes there being afraid to live next to it.
-People hoping their real estate values shoot up
