Irvine voters to decide location of Orange County Veterans Cemetery
1/11/2018

VOICE OF OC --- Irvine voters will decide the location of Orange County's first veterans cemetery after a contentious meeting that pitted members of the public and City Council against each other over whether to overturn a land swap ordinance between the city and a developer.

The original site would have racked up at least $30 million in demolition costs and at least another $30 million to construct the first phase of the cemetery, which would have housed the remains of approximately 5,000 veterans, according to a California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) report.
