Mission Viejo

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.

In an effort to continue the importance of drowning prevention education during the pandemic, the City of Mission Viejo is highlighting May’s designation as National Water Safety Month.

Despite facility closures, City staff members are focused on keeping residents safe through online trainings and virtual meetings with the American Red Cross and other aquatics safety professionals from around the country to provide critical lifesaving information to the community. Drowning is a preventable tragedy that can happen in as little as two inches of water.

It often takes a village to give someone a new lease on life. This is the story of how Mission Viejo Police Services, Mercy House, City staff, a local church and others band together to help a United States veteran find a home.  This is the story of 85-year-old Vern – who bravely served our country for nearly two decades – 1960 to 1987 – and had been living in his 1970 VW van for the last 10 years.  Vern served in the Navy, National Guard and Army Reserve. He enlisted in the Army, earned the rank of Sergeant First Class and fought in the Vietnam War.

About 4,000 people will endorse a drug-free lifestyle during Mission Viejo’s 31st annual Walk Against Drugs & Community Fair on Saturday, October 19. 

The City, Orange County Sheriff’s Department, school districts, businesses, service groups, students and families will unite for one of the City's biggest events. 

Have you heard of the Caring Fairies? These magical beings will return to the Oso Creek Trail on November 3, turning a 1-mile swath into a whimsical place of hidden fairy houses and other delights amid the tree trunks. Their return coincides with the Artisan Faire from 10 am to 4 pm at the Potocki Center for the Arts, 27301 La Paz Road.
