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.

After receiving proposals for the city’s two redevelopment properties, the City Council is set to begin reviewing the bids in closed session on Jan. 17.
The two parcels up for sale are the Camino Real Playhouse property and parking lot in downtown San Juan and the Lower Rosan Ranch, a 16.48-acre property located north of Stonehill Drive.
The Council will be briefed on the proposals during closed session. According to the Jan. 17 agenda, there are 10 negotiating parties for the playhouse property and 13 negotiating parties for the Lower Rosan Ranch.
City Manager Ben Siegel said via email that “staff will be recommending that any evaluation option includes a public outreach and public input component,” which “will be further explored in closed session.”
