Mission Viejo

From beginning guitar and ukulele to iPhone photography and abstract painting, the City’s artistic virtual classes will have you embracing your creativity.

An array of online classes kick off in November. Check them out and register at this link today.

Calling parents of elementary school kids: Do you need a break? Drop off your kids at Kids Factory to let them get the wiggles out while you enjoy some time for yourself!

Kids Factory is a fun drop-in recreation program offering activities like crafts, games, sports, special event days and much more. Parents can drop kids off or they can walk to the program after school.

NOTE: The document shredding event originally scheduled for November 7 has been postponed due to predicted rain. The new date is November 14.

Mission Viejo residents and businesses can destroy their sensitive documents during the next free drive-through Document Shredding event on Saturday, November 7.

Hosted by the City and Waste Management, the event is from 9-11 am in the Mission Viejo City Hall parking lot at 200 Civic Center.

Shredding documents with personal or financial information helps prevent identity theft.

In celebration of this 32nd year and new platform, the virtual Walk Against Drugs video event will feature a mosaic of images highlighting past events.

Along with walking down memory lane, the virtual Walk Against Drugs will unite the community in living healthy lifestyles and saying NO to drugs, alcohol, tobacco and vaping.

The City of Mission Viejo’s first Drive-in Movie, Sponsored by Evolution Swim Academy, will showcase a crowd favorite “Coco” on October 30 at Saddleback College. This enchanting animated film will air after dusk on a large 52-foot screen. Gates open at 6 pm, with the movie starting at 7 pm. All ticket proceeds will benefit the Headquarters Battalion, 1st Marine Division from Camp Pendleton.

With the Governor's mandate of keeping public buildings closed and Orange County's “purple tier” (worst) designation for COVID-19, the City of Mission Viejo will continue hosting City Council meetings virtually.

Holding the meetings virtually follows State mandates and is out of an abundance of caution and concern for public health and safety.

The meetings will resume in-person when the Governor’s mandate is lifted and all COVID-19 safety protocols are in place.

With the triple-digit temperatures forecasted for the holiday weekend, the Orange County Fire Authority (OCFA) is taking additional steps to keep the community safe.

New State legislation will protect tenants across California from eviction and property owners from foreclosure due to the economic impacts of COVID-19.

Gov. Gavin Newsom on August 28 signed the legislation, which protects tenants from eviction (before Feb. 1, 2021) for non-payment of rent due to a coronavirus-related hardship occurring between March 4 – August 31. For such hardship accruing between September 1 and January 31, 2021, tenants must also pay at least 25 percent of the rent due to avoid eviction.

A new blueprint for business sector reopening was unveiled by Governor Gavin Newsom on August 28, which includes a color-coded tiered system that will use two metrics to measure the novel coronavirus: recent case rates and what share of tests are coming back positive. Along with the tiers, Gov. Newsom announced that hair salons and barbers could reopen to a limited 25 percent capacity in Orange County.

In an effort to help residents impacted by the COVID-19 crisis and give others a chance to give back, the City will continue hosting Food Drives with fun themes and music.

Following the May 2 food drive that resulted in 8,000 pounds of food collected, the City will host additional drives from 9-11 am on May 16, May 30, June 13 and June 27 at the Norman P. Murray Community and Senior Center, 24932 Veterans Way.
