IRVINE, CA (November 17, 2014): Irvine Mayor Pro Tem Jeffrey Lalloway has been re-elected to a second term on the Orange County Transportation Authority Board.
Lalloway, whose term was to expire next month, was re-elected to a two-year term beginning January 2015 by the City Selection Committee. The committee met November 13 to appoint six members to the OCTA Board of Directors.
“I am honored to serve a second term with OCTA,” said Lalloway. “This position is vitally important to the shared interests of our City and OCTA. A government’s responsibility includes its success in transportation and infrastructure; working as an OCTA board member allows me to help keep that success going. An example from the past year is the opening of the Sand Canyon Undercrossing that allows Irvine traffic to move unimpeded under the railroad tracks along a major thoroughfare.
“I look forward to the work ahead both locally and regionally.”
The 18-member board governs OCTA, Orange County’s primary transportation agency whose mission is to develop and deliver transportation solutions. Its annual budget is about $1.12 billion.
Since its incorporation in 1971, Irvine has become a nationally recognized city, with a population of 242,651, spans 66 square miles and is recognized as one of America’s safest and most successful master-planned urban communities. Top-rated educational institutions, an enterprising business atmosphere, sound environmental stewardship, and respect for diversity all contribute to Irvine’s enviable quality of life. This family-friendly city features more than 16,000 acres of parks, sports fields and dedicated open space and is the home of the Orange County Great Park – the first great metropolitan park of the 21st century.
