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.

​Colony Monument Signs
In response to community concern The Board of Directors has formed a committee to explore the possibility of replacing the monument signs at the two entrances to the neighborhood:  The Mall at Walnut and Scottsdale at Culver.
We had some good feedback at the first meeting  on Monday, February 13, and Tuesday, March 7, 2017 7:00 PM.  

Questions that have come up is the cost will come out of reserves and not from a special assessment, and that the designs are not final but very close to what will be proposed and that more detailed info will be coming. 
Below is a link to committee working papers for review.  Colony Sign Proposed
