Alicia Parkway slope landscape rehabilitation begins this month

As part of its ongoing efforts to keep Mission Viejo beautiful, the City will continue its arterial landscape slope renovation efforts along Alicia Parkway beginning the week of May 8.

The work, which begins at the east end of Alicia Parkway at Marguerite Parkway and continues west to Trabuco Road, entails removing and replacing old, declining vegetation with drought-tolerant maintenance-friendly shrubs and ground covers. Irrigation systems will also be renovated, and select trees will be removed where necessary.

Residents living near the slopes have been notified of the renovation effort, which follows completed landscape slope improvements along Marguerite Parkway. The work will continue through October.


I applaud the City for their continued landscape improvement projects along main roads in Mission Viejo. I've been especially interested in seeing Alicia Parkway improved between Trabuco and Marguerite, as this strip of roadway leads to our very beautiful Lake Mission Viejo, and I'm thrilled that the time is now! Your continued landscape improvements have been stellar and these improvements have made Mission Viejo stand out as one of the most attractive communities in south Orange County. Bravo!

Well groomed slopes and medians are a hallmark of our city. Many of the prominent slopes and medians in our city are under renovation and require the city's extensive drought tolerant work. Alicia Parkway is one of the cities highest traveled roads in our community. I travel the Alicia Parkway daily and have noticed a lack of good grooming between Trabuco and Marguerite for years. I applaud the effort to renovate this final section and bring it up to the standards that make Mission Viejo a most desirable place to live.

I hope consideration will be given to replacing the Eucalyptus trees that are a nuisance on our properties along Alicia (invasive roots, leaves) and hazard (fall hazard and fire).

I couldn't agree more with Tom H. Please remove the Eucalyptus trees! They are a huge nuisance on our properties along Trabuco & Alicia. During the wind we had last year they towered over my home and sounded like they were going to snap. I don't need a tree coming through my roof and injuring a loved one!!!
