View possible designs for crime victims monument

Five possible designs were unveiled this week for a crime victims monument to be erected in Irvine's Mason Regional Park.

The Orange County Board of Supervisors and OC Parks on Wednesday presented the designs, selected from a group of 59, at the Old Orange County Courthouse in Santa Ana, according to a news release.

Renderings from Ivan Juarez, Jason Zerafa, Joaquin Ochoa, Man-Foon Chu and Maria Cjevic are available for the public to view until March 20. To view and comment on the five designs online, visit

The tribute "aims to promote hope and healing, offer remembrance for those touched by crime [and] give a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves," according to the release.

"Crime victims deserve a space for solitude, reflection, dignity and peace to honor their loved ones who were afflicted by senseless human acts of selfishness, anger and evil," District 3 Supervisor Todd Spitzer said in the release.

The final winning design is expected to be picked in April, with construction on the monument starting next year.
