The Ladera Ranch Civic Council has a vacant seat and is seeking applications from residents who wish to serve their community. Residents can apply by submitting the LRCC Candidate and Ethics Statement before January 21, 2020.
A new member will then be appointed by the Council, according to its Bylaws, Article IV, Section 7A, which read: “ Councilmember may be appointed to the Council to fill a vacancy at any time by the vote of a majority of all Councilmembers. The appointed Councilmember will serve out the remaining term of the vacant seat to which he/she was appointed. The Council will notify the community of any vacancies and will request candidacy statements with a minimum of fourteen (14) calendars days’ notice for potential candidates to respond.”
Many Ladera Ranch residents don’t know that our streets, parks and facilities are managed by many different entities. Some streets in our community are managed by the County, while others are managed by LARMAC and some are managed by a neighborhood sub-association. So who should a resident contact when they have a question or safety concern?
In an effort to help residents navigate this question, the council has provided a list of neighborhood streets and which entity manages them. To determine whether your street is managed through the County, through LARMAC or through a sub-association, residents can look up their street name in the document below.
If a resident determines that their home is managed by a sub-association, they can look up the appropriate contact here – Sub Association List
For streets managed by LARMAC (namely Covenant Hills), residents can direct inquiries to this email address – email@example.com
For streets managed by the county, residents can contact the Civic Council here – firstname.lastname@example.org

The six-member Ladera Ranch Civic Council voted unanimously Monday in support of a left-turn lane along O’Neill Parkway.
The county is responsible for building the left-turn lane out of the water park along O’Neill Parkway to ease traffic congestion around Oso Grande Elementary.
The council added that it would like the $70,000 project started as soon as possible but wanted to restrict the construction company to work between the hours of 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to cause the least disruption of traffic.
During the three-week construction period, traffic in both directions on O’Neill Parkway near the water park would be restricted but still open in both lanes and the water park’s parking lot will be open to use, said county traffic engineer Isaac Alonso Rice, who presented the project to the council Monday.
The county will put the project out to bid and expects the process to take about four to five months before construction could start, Rice said.
The project, which was spearheaded by Councilman Jeff Hamilton, has taken 18 months to get to the point of a proposed design solution, Hamilton said.
“This is a safety issue, trying to keep parents from dropping kids on the street,” he said.
