The Orange County Great Park Corp. Board elected a new chairwoman and vice chairman last week for the first time since the creation of the board six years ago.
Irvine Mayor Pro Tem Beth Krom was named board chairwoman and Board Director James "Walkie" Ray was named vice chairman, according to a city news release.
Former Board Chairman Larry Agran announced his decision to step down last week.
"I appreciate the leadership of Larry Agran and the support of my fellow directors," Krom said in a prepared statement. "I dedicate my term as chair to fulfilling our shared vision for creating a Great Park which serves people of every culture and interest."
