Community Wednesday: Thanks Mission Viejo!

Mission Viejo Holiday Celebration

Thanks to the Mission Viejo Neighborhood in Aurora for inviting the Creating Your Community team out for your Holiday Celebration.

We took photos of people in front of the iconic "Mission Viejo" letters and toasted the holiday season with hot chocolate, treats and horse drawn hay rides!

Community Tuesday: The Mission Viejo Neighborhood in Aurora

Mission Viejo Sign

This week we are featuring Colorado’s only true California inspired master-planned community on Community Tuesday.  The Mission Viejo Community shares the history of the neighborhood with photos and resources. If you ever lived in the neighborhood please share your story! Thanks to the Mission Viejo Homeowner's Association for creating the community and sharing your history.

The Mission Viejo Aurora story begins in California with a large cattle ranch known as Rancho Mission Viejo, south of Los Angeles, in Orange County.
