Ladera Ranch Civic Council Meeting on Monday, November 17th

The next meeting of the Ladera Ranch Civic Council will be held on Monday, November 17th at 7 PM, located in the board room at the Santa Margarita Water District building.  Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with new Fifth District Supervisor Lisa Bartlett.  Former Supervisor Patricia Bates was a good friend to Ladera Ranch and we have reason to believe that Supervisor Bartlett will also be a champion for residents of Ladera Ranch.  More information is available at the Civic Council website here.
