City leaders voted Monday night to move forward on a project to widen Oso Parkway from six lanes to eight lanes and to explore annexing 38 acres for a new housing development.
Here's how some of the big votes from Monday night went down:
- Animal License Amnesty Days: The council voted 5-0 to approve a break for unlicensed-pet owners. Throughout April, owners of unlicensed pets can get their pets licensed through the city without penalty.
- Annexation: The council voted 4-1 to approve a closer look at north of El Toro Road and the 241 toll road. Councilwoman Cathy Schlicht dissented. This would make way for the first new homes in Mission Viejo since the Clinton administration.
- Oso Widening: In a 4-1 vote, the council east of the I-5. The land would be used to widen the road from six lanes to eight. Schlicht dissented.
