City Council Meeting 9/13/16

UPDATE 9/13/16: Irvine City Council voted 5-0 in favor of holding project permits... but construction on the project conduit continues!


Irvine to Approve Illegal Electrical Substation?
Won't Revoke Fraudulently-Obtained Permits?  Setting Precedent for Future Irvine Development?


For the past 18 months, we have been battling the unthinkable. Southern California Edison (SCE) is preparing to construct MULTIPLE HIGH-VOLTAGE ELECTRICAL SUBSTATIONS on the only remaining 2.5-acre parcel in the in the middle of our well-developed, master-planned Irvine Spectrum 5 Business Park... within 10 feet of existing businesses and 1600 feet of existing residential neighborhoods. High-Voltage Electrical Conduits spanning 3.5 miles are already being installed for this project within 100 feet of existing residential neighborhoods throughout Irvine (including Hidden Canyon, Laguna Altura, and Quail Hill).

SUBSTATION LOCATION: Between Irvine Center Dr. & Wald, south of Tesla, and north of Scientific.



WHO ARE WE

We are a diverse group of business owners and residents with the following in common:
  • We moved to Irvine because of its beautiful master-planned communities.
  • We moved to Irvine because of its reputation as one of the safest cities in the world.
  • We moved to Irvine, Spectrum 5 because of its strict CC&Rs and City Building Codes.
  • We are all shocked and furious at what is happening to Spectrum 5, and to the City of Irvine.


THE PROBLEM

The problem is Southern California Edison (SCE) is preparing to construct MULTIPLE HIGH-VOLTAGE ELECTRICAL SUBSTATIONS in the middle of an existing and well-developed business park WITHOUT going through any public review, in violation of City of Irvine Zoning Laws, and violating area CC&Rs.
  • The City of Irvine's Zoning Codes, Ordinances, and Environmental Policies REQUIRE SCE to file for, and obtain certain permits, such as the Conditional Use Permit (CUP), to determine whether SCE can build a substation in Spectrum 5.

  • The Irvine Company CC&Rs PROHIBIT specific characteristics associated with the construction and operation of a substation facility with the Spectrum 5 area.
These municipal ordinances, environmental policies, and CC&Rs are meant to protect existing property owners' rights, protect the general public from hazardous or dangerous developments, and to ensure the environment won't be irreparably harmed or destroyed.

Unfortunately the City of Irvine, guided by misinformation, has made poor decisions that allows this illegal project to continue and puts the public at risk.

THE RESULTS
  • Loss of employees.
  • Loss of tenants.
  • Businesses have moved.
  • Buildings are sitting empty.
          ... and this is only the beginning!
