Esencia - Tot-Lots
The purpose of this petition is to bring attention to the current lack of tot-lots in Esencia. Our community is marketing itself as a place for young families to live, yet they failed to plan for a tot-lot in until March of 2018, 3 years after their initial release of homes. There have been multiple conversations with families who live outside of the RMV area considering moving to Esencia. They all mention that the lack of parks/tot-lots right now is a concern and a driver for them when choosing a new location to call home.
Sendero currently has 4 tot-lots/parks within walking distance to the residents, which shows the commitment the HOA was willing to make to young families in the community. We feel Esencia deserves the same.
We are specifically addressing the lack of a tot-lot at the new Hilltop location, and the timing for the Pavilion lot. The anticipated date of March 2018 for the Pavilion is a long time for families with young children in the area to wait. We are petitioning that the Rancho Mission Viejo HOA put in a small covered tot-lot before the end of this summer (September 2017) to accommodate the current need. Since the future plans for the Pavilion does include a park, the preferred location for this lot would be at the Hilltop.
