The best way to protect you and your family in a disaster is to have essential skills that could ultimately save your life. You can learn those skills and more by participating in our next free Community Emergency Preparedness Academy (CEPA) that begins on April 14.

To help residents and businesses safely and securely dispose of sensitive documents like tax records, bank statements and legal documents, the City and Waste Management are hosting a Document Shredding event on Saturday, March 7 at Mission Viejo High School.

Residents can bring up to 10 bags or boxes of sensitive materials to drop off in the school parking lot at 25025 Chrisanta Drive from 9-11 am for immediate shredding by Orange County Shredding. Binders and notebooks will not be accepted.

The California Earthquake Early Warning System now offers a free smartphone application which may provide residents with a crucial alert before they feel any shaking.

In an effort to safeguard citizens and government facilities, the City of Mission Viejo installed seismic gas shutoff valves at all City facilities with gas. 

The valves will interrupt the gas supply to the building when a magnitude 5-6.0 earthquake is detected. When determined safe, staff will manually reset the valves. This proactive measure will protect the buildings and occupants in case of a large earthquake, drastically reducing the chance of a fire or explosion due to a ruptured gas line.  

In an effort to better serve our senior population, the City has expanded its Senior Dial-A-Taxi Program to offer even more convenient locations to get folks where they need to go.

With the first rain of the season expected this week, the City of Mission Viejo is reminding residents that sandbags are available to protect properties from flooding and emergency erosion.

Sandbags are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Bags are pre-filled and are limited to 10 bags per resident. Residents can pick-up sand bags throughout the City at the following locations:

Alicia Park, 23650 Via Linda

Animal Services Center, 28095 Hillcrest

Mission Viejo Civic Center, 200 Civic Center

With more than 50 parks and vast open space, Mission Viejo has long been committed to the environment and aesthetics of this pristine community. Local scouts take pride in helping to enhance our City through planting and landscaping projects.  In fact, many scouts throughout the summer completed Eagle Scout projects that benefited our City.

Here’s a summary:

Armed with 30 volunteers, Luke Bowman of Troop #1602 planted 1,000 one-gallon plants along the slope area of Trabuco Road between Via Bahia and Via San Gabriel.

The City of Mission Viejo is seeking public input on its draft Comprehensive Bikeway and Transportation Connectivity Master Plan.

La Paws Dog Park will be closed Tuesday, July 16 from 7 am to 1 pm for street paving work along Felipe Road.

The City installed signage this week to alert dog park users of the closure, which is designed to improve the life of Felipe Road. The park located at 25100 Felipe Road will reopen on Wednesday, July 17.

Today, nearly 360,000 motorists travel I-5 daily between the San Joaquin Hills Toll Road (SR-73) and El Toro Road. Transportation planners expect traffic volumes to grow 25 percent by 2045. To address this travel demand, OCTA and Caltrans are working together to implement the San Diego Freeway (I-5) Widening project from SR-73 to El Toro Road.
