The Colony

The Colony was established in 1970 as the first development of the Walnut Village in Irvine. There are 475 single family homes in the community. The Colony is a family community just blocks away from Irvine School District’s Irvine High School and College Park Elementary School. Just a short walk to shopping at both Walnut Village Center and Heritage Plaza; it is a pedestrian and bike friendly location. Peter’s Canyon Bike trail and Harvard Park Athletic fields are also close by.

IRWD Water Efficiency Speaker
 As a result of the prolonged drought conditions in California, the IRWD is encouraging residents to do all they can to voluntarily reduce their water consumption by 20%.  
 To help homeowners learn about ways to save water, the Board of Directors invited the water efficiency manager Amy McNulty, from IRWD to come and speak to us about water conservation.  She had a lot of great information to share not only about the drought, our water sources and our water bill, but also about simple and effective ways to save water.  There was a vibrant exchange of ideas with homeowners showcasing some local Colony drought tolerant and native landscaping already being enjoyed here. 
 We would like to thank Myra Radlow for putting the meeting together and special thanks to Amy for making fun as well as informative.
