Meetings discuss and provide input on: planning and land use,a public safety, public works, and other municipal related services. The Council consists of seven elected council members.

Chiquita Ridge – Rancho Santa Margarita
Chiquita Ridge is a 92-acre undeveloped parcel owned by the City of Rancho Santa Margarita. It is located along Antonio Parkway south of Canada Vista Park at the southern boundary of the City. The Civic Council spoke with the City on January 24, 2017, and at this point, there are no established plans for development. The City hired a consulting firm to prepare the preliminary traffic, fiscal, and environmental studies, which could result in a variety of potential development options. However, the City Council has not voted to take further action and there is no developer for any potential project.
The City of Rancho Santa Margarita Director of Development Services, Cheryl Kuta, is open to answering questions by the public. Please visit www.cityofrsm.org for more details on the status of this project.
