Irvine 2045 General Plan Update
With the adoption of the certified 2021-2029 Housing Element in May 2022, the City is required to update the appropriate elements of the General Plan to accommodate the City’s Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) of 23,610 units. To ensure consistency with housing statute, including no-net loss and affirmatively furthering fair housing requirements, the 2021-2029 Housing Element identified adequate sites to accommodate 57,656 new residential units. The project would implement the 2021-2029 Housing Element through the introduction of additional residential and/or mixed-use development throughout the City using overlay zones to allow greater flexibility for property owners and developers. The overlays would promote higher density residential and residential mixed-use in three focus areas. The project would also allow for the development of 8,536 new units throughout the City, and accounts for 2,261 units associated with recently approved housing projects. Therefore, in total the project would accommodate up to 57,656 units. As part of this project, adjustments will be made to all existing General Plan elements (excluding the Housing Element). The project also includes non-residential land uses in the Irvine Great Park (including a botanical garden, a veteran’s memorial garden, a library, a discovery center, two museums, a 65-acre central park area, an accessory restaurant use, an aquatic center, an all-wheel park, and pickleball courts), as well as the extension of the Ada roadway from its current terminus in the parking lot of the Irvine train station to meet the future Marine Way extension north of the railroad tracks.
