Ladera Ranch is a 4,000 acre master-planned community with over 23,000 residents and is adjacent to Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, and San Juan Capistrano. Located along Antonio Parkway and Crown Valley Parkway, construction of the community began in 1999 on portions of the O’Neill, Avery, & Moiso families’ 23,000 acre Rancho Mission Viejo cattle ranch, the largest remaining working ranch in Orange County.
As a part of unincorporated Orange County, Ladera Ranch is governed by the Orange County Board of Supervisors as part of the Fifth District, supervised by Patricia Bates, and the Ladera Ranch Civic Council. The Ladera Ranch Civic Council (LRCC) is a precursor to a local incorporated government that provides input to the Orange County Board of Supervisors. The purpose of this organization is to encourage and gather public comment on a range of topics which may affect the community of Ladera Ranch and represent the interests of Ladera Ranch Residents as a public benefit council. The seven member Civic Council board of directors focuses on municipal topics within Ladera Ranch that are associated with the City Government such as:
- Planning / Land Use
- Public Safety
- Public Works
- Other Municipal related services
Law enforcement services in Ladera Ranch are provided by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department and the California Highway Patrol.
