President’s Corner — June 2018

Hello again, time for my June commentary.

First, thank you to our newest Lifetime Members:

                      Chris and Tracy Clevidence and David and Nancy Walden

Our Lifetime Club is growing. Please refer to the MEMBERSHIP LIST posting as of June 1st. There was a considerable drop off from the 2017 membership year, so If you haven’t tendered your dues for this year (Apr 1- Mar 31), now is a good time to do so. We are working on setting up “auto renew” to make it simpler for our members, so bear with us. PayPal sign ups are also being refined and will include the auto-renew feature. Stay tuned for more on this.

For the past few months you have likely noticed new construction in the center at Harbor and Adams. So, what’s going on?  This past Friday, we posted a update, courtesy of the Segerstrom Co.,  owners and operators of the center, with information on the new section of “The Shops at Mesa Verde,” as well as  what’s happening at the old Acapulco.

Bet you’ve seen some coyotes running around the community. The California Fish and Wildlife Department is very concerned that a big part of the problem is us. (We have met the enemy and he is us! – POGO)  If you want to know why and what we can do about it, click here.  Really good stuff!

Looks like the new fire station at Adams and Royal Palm will now open in September, ….. or maybe October? Stay tuned for news on a grand opening and guided tours, courtesy of CMFD and MVCI. Our patience will be rewarded, I’m sure.

Our cadre of MVCI volunteers is growing, now numbering seven. This is a great opportunity for you to serve your community without an obligation to time commitment. We will call on you from time to time for special projects. My goal is to reach 20 by March 31st. Will you help me? Contact me at bob@juneman.com for more info or to enlist.

Stay connected to MVCI via our website. New postings often.

and…..

PLEASE REMEMBER TO RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP!

Thank you,  ‘til July,

Bob

News, regarding “The Shops at Mesa Verde”

Many in our community have wondered about the new construction taking place near the corner of Adams and Harbor. MVCI President Bob Juneman recently spoke with officials from C.J. Segerstrom & Sons, who were kind enough to share an update on these activities:

Broken Yolk Café –  The newest addition to The Shops at Mesa Verde, Broken Yolk Café opens on Monday June 25th next to CVS. Originally started in San Diego in 1979, Broken Yolk has grown to 25 locations across the US.  BYC serves breakfast, brunch and lunch, Open Monday thru Thursday from 6:00 am to 2:30 pm and Friday thru Sunday from 6:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Porcelain Luxury Salon Suites –  Currently under construction, Porcelain Luxury Salon Suites is completely renovating what once was the Acapulco building at The Shops at Mesa Verde.  Porcelain will consist of approximately 32 luxury suites for individual salon owners consolidated in one spot, from hairstylists, estheticians, nail technicians, medical spa technicians, eye lash extension, and more.  We anticipate the opening of Porcelain Luxury Salon Suites around November, 2018.

Descanso – A Modern Tacqueria – Coming in the fall of 2018, Descanso Mexican Restaurant will occupy 3,700 square feet on the east end of the newly developed restaurant building.  Descanso is a full-service Mexican restaurant with full-bar offering lunch, dinner and weekend brunch.

Dylan Blue Nail Spa – Coming this fall, Dylan Blue Nail Spa will replace Happiness Nails with a more modern salon.  Dylan Blue Nail Spa currently has one location in Tustin and will offer manicures, pedicures, facial waxing, eyelash extensions, and eyebrow and eyelash tinting.

Updates were provided by Carmen Twork, from Segerstrom. Further news will include info on any additional tenants in the new structure that replaced Souplantation.

Stay tuned!
