VOTE TO APPROVE ON JUNE 24!
Dear Mayor Pezold,
It is time to stop the delays and to vote to APPROVE the Village at Laguna Hills Project at the June 24th Council meeting and continuation of the public hearing. On April 27, you heard overwhelming support for the Project. In fact, there was over two-hours of public support, followed by twelve minutes of testimony against the project. Even before the live public hearing, the community gave comments via letters and emails and once again showed they were overwhelmingly in support of the Project. Your own City staff members have recommended the Project and provided a thorough overview of the it and its benefits. Village at Laguna Hills brings extraordinary benefits to the City including: LESS TRAFFIC: Daily weekday trips counts are down 9,970 trips while daily weekend trips are down 15,542 trips. OPEN SPACE: A 2.5-acre park in the heart of the Village, which can be used for community gatherings, non-profit fundraisers, concerts in the park and other city events. PARKS: The Village will bring Fee payments of over nearly $26 million at full build-out that can be used to improve City public facilities. This includes over $23 million in dedicated funding for parks and recreation facilities. ANNUAL TAX REVENUE: The Village will bring anticipated annual general fund revenues of nearly $2.5 million from property and sales taxes with an additional half million dollars annually in Transient Occupancy Taxes. This $3 million in tax revenue can be used for improved fire and safety. HOUSING: The Village will provide of over 60 percent of the housing the City is required to plan for in the upcoming 2021-2029 Housing Element update, minimizing the need to rezone other properties to provide housing. JOBS: Creation of thousands of temporary construction jobs, and thousands of permanent employment opportunities for local residents. The facts clearly show that the Village at Laguna Hills is the right project for area and that the entire City will benefit from the development of this Project. STOP THE DELAYS!
