Mission Viejo history you probably don’t know

How much do you know about the early years of Mission Viejo? Local historian Bob Bunyan will give you the scoop during a special presentation on Sunday, January 28. 

History buffs and folks who want to learn more about our City’s roots should mark their calendars for the presentation that starts at 3 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chamber, 200 Civic Center.

Bob joined the Mission Viejo Company in 1971 as a corporate planner and worked on the development of this community as well as the company’s other projects in Colorado, Arizona and California.  In this role, he assisted with strategic planning throughout the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.  Bob was the last management employee of the Mission Viejo Company after its sale to Shea Homes.   A Mission Viejo resident since 1971, Bob experienced the growth and maturation of this City and has a unique perspective of its evolution.  He serves on the Orange County Historical Commission and is the author of “Images of America: Aliso Viejo” published by Arcadia Publishing.
Along with other interesting tidbits, Bob will discuss the role Donald Bren played in developing Mission Viejo; how the community was planned; the formation of Lake Mission Viejo; why the Mission Viejo Company stopped building houses; and why it was sold and shut down.

To RSVP for this intriguing presentation, email libreference@cityofmissionviejo.org or call 949-830-7100, ext. 5105.
