The Ladera Ranch Civic Council is the precursor to a local incorporated government that provides input to the Orange County governing boards as the Ladera Ranch civic representation. The purpose of the Council is to encourage and gather public comment on a range of topics which may affect the community and represent the interests of Ladera Ranch residents as their Council. Meetings discuss and provide input on: p
lanning and land use, public safety, public works, and other municipal related services. The Council consists of seven elected council members.

The Council meets the third Monday of each month, unless a holiday conflicts, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm at the Santa Margarita Water District board room located at 26111 Antonio Pkwy.

Our Next Public Meeting will be
Monday, March 19th
