The article regarding Irvine's referendum ("Irvine Is at Crossroads on Continued Growth," Oct. 28) suggested that Irvine Tomorrow was a newly formed group in the city. The opposite is true. Irvine Tomorrow began 20 years ago during the very first Irvine City Council race. It backed a slate of environmentally sensitive candidates against a slate that was publicly supported and bankrolled by the Irvine Co. Guess what? Irvine Tomorrow-backed candidates won the majority on the new City Council in 1971 and the Irvine Co. was left with only two!

I must respond to your editorial "A Bad Time to Change Housing Goals--Affordable Unit Concept Could Suffer Under New Action By Irvine City Council" (Nov. 18). First, I couldn't agree with you more; the 3,700 unit Westpark II (Village 38) must not be developed without its fair share of affordable housing units. I recently testified on behalf of Irvine Tomorrow (a citizen group concerned with the quality of life in Irvine) before the Irvine City Council expressing seven major concerns Irvine Tomorrow has about Village 38. Affordable housing was addressed as well as six other areas.

Whether Irvine's voters appreciate it or not, next week we will make history with our decision on Measure B. Shall we vote "No," turning our back on our city's highly acclaimed approach to thoughtful, comprehensive planning, and possibly threaten the historic Open Space Agreement ratified by 88% of Irvine's electorate in 1988? Or, shall we vote "Yes," preserving the stability, security, and certainty of Irvine's stringent growth management that has produced the highly livable community that we enjoy today?

You know what? Sally Anne Sheridan has it all wrong. As Irvine's new mayor, she is often the subject of criticism, which she interprets as so many "personal attacks." She seems convinced that the only conceivable reason for this criticism of her is that she is not Larry Agran. She regularly remarks in interviews that those members of the community who often voice concerns at City Council meetings during public comments are simply experiencing a bad case of sour grapes, whining because their political messiah has been succeeded.

In a move to forestall a referendum, Councilman Bill Vardoulis offered Tuesday to mediate between the Irvine Co. and a slow-growth group that successfully halted the company's proposed 3,800-home Westpark II project last month. Vardoulis' suggestion came during a City Council discussion on whether to call an election to determine if the Irvine Co. should be allowed to build Westpark II just north of the current Westpark.

In a discussion Tuesday between the Irvine Co. and Irvine Tomorrow--a slow-growth group trying to block the company's 3,800-home Westpark II project--opposition leaders said they want the City Council to schedule an election on the project before discussing specifics.

Top officials from the Irvine Co. and members of the slow-growth Irvine Tomorrow group met this week to discuss their disagreements over the developer's plan to build 3,800 Westpark II homes east of Tustin Marine Corps Helicopter Air Station. Although the groups reached no agreement, both sides agreed to meet again April 14. The discussions appear to be "a step forward" in resolving differences, said City Councilman Bill Vardoulis, who added, "This is encouraging."

A group of slow-growth advocates submitted four cardboard boxes of petitions to the city Wednesday aimed at overturning the planned 3,800-home Westpark II project, the first village approved by the city in five years. The petitions delivered by Irvine Tomorrow contain about 8,600 signatures, about 3,000 more than needed to place the housing project on the ballot.
