City drops lawsuit over proposed stadium


The City of Irvine recently dropped its lawsuit against the Irvine Unified School District over a proposed second district stadium, set to be built at Uni High.

In response, Superintendent Gwen Gross issued the following statement:

We are pleased to have reached agreement with the City of Irvine regarding the proposed stadium at University High School. The components of this settlement, as they relate to traffic and safety, are in alignment with our plans at Uni, as well as our historic commitment to ensuring that our facilities meet the highest standards.

The Irvine Unified School District has always worked to exceed all federal and state requirements, including those spelled out in the California Environmental Quality Act. The bottom line is we want the best for our students, and we want to be good neighbors – and we believe our track record bears that out.

The Irvine Unified School District and the City of Irvine have a long history of working together toward the common good, and we look forward to continuing that relationship.
