The Gardens Mixed-Use Proposal
- Initial Study, 12-20-2021
- Notice of Preparation
- The Garden Mixed-use Proposal Public Scoping Meeting, 1/24/22 (Video)
The City is providing regular updates regarding the proposed ValueRock development on the corner of Marguerite and La Paz to keep residents informed. As the property owner’s proposal works its way through the City’s land use entitlement process, the City has provided a simplified flow chart outlining the numerous steps in that process and where it currently stands. The chart also highlights when important opportunities for public input will take place.
As a reminder, the City has not initiated nor promoted this proposal. The property is owned by a private property owner, and the City is legally required to provide a fair and neutral public hearing process. As always, the City encourages all Mission Viejo residents to participate and share their comments with the City when those stages in the process are reached.
Once the City receives ValueRock’s final proposed plan, the City will post and share it with the community.
