The County of Orange Planning Department seems to be languishing. The probationary director was let go in recent days. That means half of the top four management positions in the OC Public Works Department are now vacant.
In this vacuum there appears to be little movement on the two hillside development projects: Cielo Vista and Esperanza Hills. We also understand the litigation between the two feuding landowners will go to court this summer. This litigation may resolve the issue of ingress/egress.
