How To Spot A Suburb Becoming An Urban County
"With the Irvine Co. putting finishing touches on a 745-acre site above Crystal Cove State Park, 'that's it for ocean view in Orange County,'...

Orange County already is more crowded than Los Angeles County with about 3,600 residents per square mile compared to 2,300 in the larger county, according to the 2000 census. And plans are underway to develop the last remaining parcels of privately owned land in the county's once-rural edges."
