Saddleback Surveys has been the primary surveying firm representing Wilson Mikami Corporation on the development of this fast-paced project. Additionally, many entitlement issues that have been dormant for decades surfaced in the analysis of the boundary and threatened to halt the development. Saddleback Surveys worked closely with the City Surveyor and Irvine Ranch Water District to resolve the problems and keep the project on schedule. Construction and mapping is still on-going.
