Meet Larry

Larry Agran served on the Irvine City Council for more than 20 years, including 10 years as Mayor.  The policies Larry drafted and secured approval for literally changed Irvine forever.

Under Larry’s leadership, the City:

  • Strengthened Irvine’s Master Plan by instituting growth control policies
  • Preserved more than 10,000 acres of Open Space which will remain forever free of development
  • Drafted and passed Orange County’s first Human Rights Ordinance
  • Became the first city in the nation to ban CFCs and other ozone-depleting chemicals
  • Built our beautiful Community Parks system
  • Established Irvine’s Curbside Recycling Program
  • Defeated the County’s proposed El Toro International Airport. Our victory not only protected Irvine’s quality of life but also our property values.
  • Established thousands of attractive affordable housing units
  • Brought diversity & the nation’s highest standards to our Police Department
  • Balanced every City budget (without raising taxes)
  • Established Irvine’s “Rainy Day” Contingency Fund with tens of millions of dollars in reserves

Raised in Southern California, Larry attended Harvard Law School, where he specialized in public interest law.  He and his wife Phyllis and their young son, Ken, moved to Irvine in 1973 so that Phyllis could attend UCI Medical School.

Larry served on the Irvine City Council for more than 20 years, including 10 years as Mayor of Irvine.

While on the Council, Larry pioneered policies to strengthen the Irvine Master Plan by instituting growth control policies, establishing affordable housing, successfully stopping an airport, and winning public approval of a sweeping Open Space Preservation plan — setting aside more than 10,000 acres of wilderness in a natural open space preserve that surrounds the City and will remain forever free of development.

Last year, Larry proposed and drafted the citizens’ initiative that was signed by 19,790 Irvine residents to make sure that the long-promised Veterans Memorial Park & Cemetery at the Great Park becomes a reality.

Larry and Phyllis continue to live in the same modest University Park home they purchased in 1976. Their son, Ken, and daughter-in-law Kerrie reside in West Irvine with their two children, Morgan and Benjamin.
