SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why The Capistrano Dispatch is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

The City of San Juan Capistrano’s gateway landscaping project recently wrapped up. The project beautified corners of the Ortega Highway and Del Obispo Street intersection. Renovations included low stone masonry walls, new plants and irrigation and drainage enhancements.
The project was brought about so the corners can match Inn at the Mission San Juan Capistrano’s landscaping. A small new median on Ortega Highway with succulent plants was also built. The San Juan Capistrano City Council authorized funding the project in March 2020.
