Issues

Campaign themes

2014

On his campaign website, Agran highlighted the following issues:[2]

Open space

  • Excerpt: "Open space preserved in perpetuity — as it is in Irvine — can be a powerful safeguard against the encroachment of uncontrolled growth and development. Open Space has inherent value for all of us. It provides balance in our planned community. And it should serve as a reminder of our ethical and environmental responsibilities as well: We are not here to conquer the land — we are here to be wise stewards of the land for the long-term benefit of humanity."

Growth and development

  • Excerpt: "The City Council has ample legal authority to restore our Irvine General Plan and reassert control over growth and development in Irvine. Specifically, a new Mayor and pro-resident City Council should adopt “slow growth” policies, beginning with a moratorium — or “time-out” — on the issuance of building permits for large tracts of new houses and apartment complexes. This moratorium should be followed by adoption of a comprehensive Growth Control Ordinance that sets a specific annual limit on the number of new houses and apartments that can be built, ensuring that schools and infrastructure improvements and all public services are in place in advance of new growth. Our goal should be to fortify our commitment to good planning by controlling growth and development in ways that preserve and even enhance our quality of life in Irvine."
