Irvine Information

Irvine is one of the nation's largest planned urban communities and encompasses more than 55 square miles. Thirty years ago, the City of Irvine was still in its infancy. Today, Irvine has grown into what many describe as a "total destination," a community boasting state-of-the-art transportation programs and systems, an enterprising business environment, stellar educational institutions and a team-like lifestyle.
