Irvine was a planning city developed mainly by Irvine (en) since the 1960s. In 1959, a plan to develop cities with a population of about 50,000 mainly at the University of California, Irvine, was formulated, and on December 28, 1971, a large-scale development plan that was larger than the original plan was approved by a referendum. The layout of Irvine was designed by the Los Angeles architect William Pereira. The name of the city is divided into residential areas called 'mura.' Each residential area is divided into six lanes, and each residential area has a shopping facility, religious facilities, and a residential area where schools are set up.
According to the FBI announcement (2005), Irvine is the safest city in the United States. The number of atrocious crimes per 100,000 residents is 30, the lowest in the United States. In the ranking of "Safe Cities in the United States" released by Morgan Quitnot, Inc., it was ranked in the top 15th place every year, starting with the 1995 edition.
regulation by residents
Since the planning stage, the city's landscape has been taken into consideration and it has many green areas, reservoirs and parks. In Irvine, strict restrictions are imposed to protect the scenery of the city. The association of housing owners in each residential area regulates the appearance of the house (color of the house, roof design, tree planting type, etc.). In harsh areas, even vehicles that can be parked outside the house are restricted.
According to a 2010 census, about 50% of the population are Caucasian, about 40% are Asian, about 7% are Latin American, about 1% are African and the rest are others. According to age, 23.5% were under 18 years old, 14.4% were between 18 and 24 years old, and they were constructed as educational cities. In the family structure, 53.8% are married households and 32.9% are single households. The education level of the residents is high, and 60% of the residents have graduated from university. The average household income is 85,624 dollars.

Irvine City is a sister city with the following cities:
- Elmosijo City (Mexico)
- Tsukuba City (Japan)
- Taoyuan City (Taiwan)
On May 30, 2006, the Irvine City authorities signed an agreement to establish sister-city relations with Xuhui District in Shanghai. Later, the Chinese side protested that Momozono City in Taiwan was a sister city of Irvine City. China and Shanghai's stance on the Taiwan side cannot be permitted to have relations with Taiwan. In the future, the written agreement included a request to dissolve sister-city relations with Momozono City. Shanghai requested Irvine to cut relations with Momozono City. As a result, officials of Irvine City were unable to visit Momozono City officially (the agreement between the two cities is not automatically effective due to the issue of the United States government's position on the issue of sovereignty over Taiwan). After the Shanghai agreement was announced, protests erupted, mainly among Taiwanese American communities, with 10,000 people protesting. On June 27, 2006, 200 demonstrators gathered in the Irvine City Assembly demanding the cancelation of the contract. The mayor apologized to the Taiwanese side and accused China's actions of "a dirty scheme".
