The group has been lobbying the Irvine Co. to build fewer homes in its newest planned community, called Planning Area 27, for the last two years and had even developed its own alternative.

A Los Angeles City Council committee Wednesday approved a $1.1-million loan commitment for an 85-unit housing project near Lincoln Park in East Los Angeles.
