Who built Irvine ? Private planning and the federal government

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The Irvine Ranch in Southern California is the largest privately master-planned new community or satellite new town ever to be built in the US. The development was led by the private sector but government played an important role. The paper traces how the federal government shaped the Irvine development through a range of policies and programmes from defence to habitat protection. The analysis highlights some of the problems likely to be faced as governments promote similarly phased, co-ordinated and mixed-use proposals under the rubric of smart growth or sustainable development
