Irvine

Renewing their promise to push for permanent flight limits at John Wayne Airport, council members Tuesday invited Newport Beach to join them in battling the proposed El Toro international airport.

"For six years this issue has divided neighbor against neighbor, community against community," said Mayor Christina L. Shea. "It's time for a new direction."

Newport Beach and Irvine have been at odds for years over the reuse of the former El Toro Marine Corps Air Station. Newport Beach officials believe an airport will spare its residents added John Wayne flights. Irvine wants neither the El Toro airport nor an expanded John Wayne because both facilities border Irvine.
