IRIVINE (CBSLA.com) — A proposal to develop the Orange County Great Park in Irvine narrowly passed a city council vote Tuesday night.

The council voted 3-2 to allow a developer to build 4,600 homes on the site of the abandoned El Toro Military Base.

FivePoint Communities, a private developer that owns the land, plans to build residences, a golf course, sports fields, trails and more.

Opposing council members, Beth Krom and Larry Agran, say they are concerned about toxic effects from on-site landfills, as well as the proximity of a proposed high school to a nearby jail that will likely be undergoing an $80 million expansion.
