Events in the news this week.
Plans to develop 7,500 acres in an area of east Orange around Irvine Lake will be reviewed at a public meeting Thursday. The Irvine Co. and the city of Orange are working together on a study of the area. While there are no specific plans, the general intent is to create a residential area with some commercial and recreational space. Construction is at least 2 years away. The workshop is the third in a series conducted throughout the area.
