That's a good one coming from Jim Reardon. He's a member of the group that's always villifying theRead More Ranch.

It is unfortunate that after nine years on the City Council that Sam Allevato and 14,000 homes to beRead More built that Sam Allevato is finally realizing that maybe we should be a part of this. Talk about being late to the game !

I know one thing for sure, the water plant isn't going to make any fiscal sense unless we get moreRead More "customers" or we produce much more than we currently are. The expansion of the tax base should overall have a positive effect on this town, and we should use the opportunity (if it arrives) to lower the cost per resident for the services the city provides. Further, giving up on expansion and annexation east I feel would lead to a greater threat upon our open spaces.

The character of San Juan will not change, but will be enhanced by the annexation of a the Ranch.Read More It has been my experience, that the property values of existing homes tend to increase and keep pace with the newly built housing areas. Most of us long term residents have always considered the Ranch as part of our heritage.

...their timing is impeccable...with the lost electricity from the nuclear power plant; to theRead More upcoming water shortage; to the traffic issues because of the decline of the toll road extension...this is a perfect storm...but the developers got their way and make a lot of money...that's the American way.

those are the all-ages homes. The builders of the age-qualified homes (in the neighborhood calledRead More Gavilan) are Standard Pacific, Shea and Del Web. According to info I have, there will be 286 homes for seniors, "primarily sing-level residences." Go here to see those homes: http://ranchomissionviejo.com/homes/gavilan/ 3 of the 11 models are single story.
