Is the Great Park turning into the Great Lot? With the rejection of Proposition 51, Irvine won't get $120 million it had hoped to use to begin transforming the closed El Toro Marine base into a massive open space and recreation area. The ballot measure was resoundingly defeated in every Orange County city -- including Irvine -- as well as statewide, suggesting that even local voters don't want general fund money redirected to the Great Park.

A by-the-numbers look at the so-called Great Park initiative shows that it will not create any new taxes or tax increases, the county auditor said Friday. But maintaining such a park at the closed El Toro Marine base will cost the county $19 million over the next 18 years if it's approved by voters in March.

It would cost $2.1 billion to build a great urban park at the closed El Toro Marine base, far from the low-cost conversion envisioned by park supporters, according to an analysis released Tuesday by pro-airport forces. Operating costs would run $43 million a year plus $17 million for maintenance, according to the review by BBC Research Consulting of Denver, which analyzed Irvine literature and a city-paid revenue analysis. The pro-El Toro Airport Working Group paid for the $45,000 review.
