State To Irvine: Add Projects Or Else We'll Sue You

So I'm flipping through the Register this morning and I came across this gem of an article. Panel Recommends Irvine Add Low Income Units. This is a polite way of saying we need to add more poor people to our city. This should be a slam dunk for the current liberal majority on the council. One of Larry Agran's long term goals is to import their type of voter demographic and make Irvine more Democratic. What better way to do this than to add thousands of new projects to the city. Let's pack em in like sardines to North Irvine where there is still land left to build. While they're at it, why don't they make Irvine a sanctuary city as well. Let's roll out the welcome mat for illegal aliens. The only problem with that is all the new Irvine residents who paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to move to North Irvine so they could enjoy the quality type of life they expected when they moved here. I'm sure they didn't envision being surrounded by projects/low income/goverment subsidized Section XIII housing. This should be real interesting.

    Yes, I agree importing poor people into Irvine is a really stupid idea. It would guarantee that Irvine would not remain the safest city in the U.S. The article refers to the Southern California Association of Governments. That organization must be full of liberals. This recommendation would make it easy for Agran to justify low income housing.

    This reminded me of the situation back in 1987 when Irvine put the homeless in their animal shelter!

    Homeless may move next door to pets
    Irvine task force makes 3 proposals for animal shelter
    August 6, 1987

    Byline: Jane H. Farr

    The Register
    The Orange County Register

    In an effort to aid Irvine's down and out, the city is looking at proposals to shelter homeless people next door to homeless pets. One proposal would create living quarters for about 40 people in an unused portion of the Irvine Animal Care Facility. The other two would place the homeless in modular units on Animal Care Facility property.

    "When you get out there and look at it, it makes a little more sense," Assistant City Manager Paul Brady Jr. said.

    What is "Section XIII" housing?

    It should be Section 8(VIII). It is gov. subsidized housing i.e. Housing Projects
