I’d like to submit one map at this time:
Here’s my rationale behind this map:
– District 1 includes mostly newer developments, and is unlikely to see significant growth. So I kept it at the higher end of the acceptable number of residents in a district.
– District 2 includes The Great Park and the Spectrum communities. These two communities are projected to have large amounts of population growth in the near future from future developments. I felt it was very important not to split up Great Park as they are subject to Mello-Roos Tax that will fund a lot of the new developments and attractions that are to be built in the coming years.
– District 3 includes older neighborhoods that might want to see reinvestment in their communities. One downside of this district is it likely splits up University Park, which might house UCI students although I found it unlikely given that they are mostly the oldest single family homes in the City.
– District 4 is mainly the Irvine Business Complex, also likely to see increased growth in recent years. Their common concern is likely congestion and investing in missing infrastructure such as sidewalks, bike lanes, and transit.
– District 5 also includes older communities that have shared interests in renewing infrastructure that is deteriorating.
– District 6 also includes older communities that have shared interests in renewing infrastructure that is deteriorating.
