Irvine Mayor Christina Shea wants Gov. Gavin Newsom to visit her city to review competing properties to establish a veterans cemetery.

Liss:  Original Veterans Cemetery Site is Best Option for Veterans & Irvine

Harvey Liss, who is Editor of Irvine Community News & Views, writes that a recent editorial from Laguna Greenbelt Inc., which touts the environmental benefits of a veterans cemetery on Strawberry fields near the 405 and 5 freeway interchange, is off base. He argues the original site for a veterans’ cemetery in Irvine offers a far better and more equitable solution for city residents and veterans to the conservation challenges pointed out by the competing authors.
