A "Better" Plan for Mission Viejo?

New developments with two stories of apartments over retail stores, with parking garages either above- or below-ground would replace suburban shopping centers at La Paz and Marguerite and elsewhere in Mission Viejo. Chandra Krout,, planning and traffic commissioner appointed by City Councilman Frank Ury, crafted a Mixed-Use Draft Zoning Ordinance, which is attached. Even though the city is virtually built-out the ordinance could add thousands of units above the planned-development housing cap of 30,000 units. The cap already has been exceeded by commercial property being replaced with high-density apartments at locations such as La Alameda.
