Interesting e-mail regarding Toll Road and the relationship between the TCA and Rancho Mission Viejo in the construction of Los Patrones.
The Ranch received 401 Wastewater Discharge permits to build Los Patrones (A FREE Arterial Road like Antonio Parkway and La Pata).
The TCA/CalTrans was denied the 401 Wastewater Discharge permit to build the Tesoro Extension of the 241 Toll Road from Oso to Cow Camp.
The TCA/Caltrans is building a road that is on the exact same alignment as Los Patrones; but that road is a Tolled road, not a FREE arterial road.
This is all very confusing because we have two different entities building two separate roads, but there is really one road being built. Is Los Patrones a Toll Road or is it a Free Arterial Road? It cannot be both at the same time.
Is the TCA lying to its bond holders, or is Rancho Mission Viejo lying to its Mello Roos taxpayers?
One Road... Two different funding sources!
