Comments on Districting

Retrieved May 3, 2023 at 10:40 a.m.

Good afternoon. I’m Scott Hansen, president of the Sierra Bonita Homeowners Association in Turtle Rock.

I will comment on the specific issue of districting UC Irvine.
The communities of Turtle Rock, Turtle Ridge, and Shady Canyon have a different community of interests than UC Irvine, which is on state land. The issues of concern to university students are different than to homeowners on private Irvine land. And students deserve attention to issues unique to them.
My request is that UCI and Turtle Rock/Turtle Ridge/Shady Canyon be in separate districts. Thank you.
Best, Scott Hansen
