Mission Viejo Cumulus Clouds
Mission Viejo has always been a beautiful Community!

I have had the pleasure of living here for 28 years and raising my two sons. My family benefited from improvements (Library, NPM Senior Center, Oso Creek Trail, parks, Oso Creek Golf Course), community events, and the Character program:  all increased the quality of life.   


As parents, my husband and I marveled that with school, local sports, Scouts and City activities, we did not need to leave the City for entertainment elsewhere. Our Cub Scout Pack 714 laid tiles for the blue creek path and the historical mosaic pictures in the Character Garden off Marguerite, planted trees and bushes, and has picked up trash for Inner-Coastal Watershed Clean-up for over 20 years. Our family assisted with many Eagle Projects over the years in MV, many sponsored by the City. Families were involved in beautifying MV (remember 10 years of Tierra Nativa?) and that experience built community through sharing time, space, and participating in a collaborative vision. This created a sense of Belonging!

My goal is that residents today and tomorrow will feel that sense of belonging to this wonderful community.
