Ladera Ranch Civic Council to Discuss Ranch Plan and Cityhood Tonight

The Ladera Ranch Civic Council meets tonight, with two topics near and dear to us on the agenda.

Rancho Mission Viejo Update

Representatives from Rancho Mission Viejo Company will provide the Council with an update on the Ranch Plan project, including the Sendero Grand Opening on June 29-30.

Governance Task Force

The Civic Council is also forming a Governance Task Force to research local governance options (i.e., cityhood).  Tonight, the Council will review the draft Charter for this Task Force.  The Council is also soliciting members interested in joining the Task Force.  Want a primer on cityhood?  Read our articles here, here and here.

The Ladera Ranch Civic Council meets at 7 PM tonight at the Santa Margarita Water District building on Antonio Parkway, in the Board Room.
