Irvine is beloved by its residents for its unparalleled schools, clean and safe neighborhoods, and convenient public transportation system. Students from all over the world move here to attend UC Irvine. Tourists enjoy going for a balloon ride at Orange County Great Park, exploring the botanical gardens at the UCI arboretum, and appreciating international cultures at the annual Global Village Festival. As is the case with most of Orange County, housing costs in this SoCal city are very steep. We believe SB 9 can help create more affordable homes for Anteaters fans of all backgrounds and income levels.
