Despite a last-minute objection from a resident, the County Board of Supervisors Tuesday granted final approval to Boys Town USA to build five homes on 13 acres northeast of Mission Viejo near Trabuco Canyon Road. The board voted 5 to 0 to approve the project following a final appeal by Ray Chandos, co-founder of the Rural Canyon Conservation Fund. He claimed that changes had been made to plans since the last public hearing two weeks ago.

Plans by Boys Town USA to build five homes for children in Trabuco Canyon were cleared by the County Board of Supervisors on Wednesday, despite concerns that the campus would be atop a foothill ridgeline. The board voted 4 to 0 to reject a final appeal from homeowners opposed to the project. A formal vote was scheduled for Dec. 12 after county lawyers prepare the legal language denying the appeal.

A Trabuco Canyon resident filed suit Tuesday to stop the proposed development of Boys Town USA, a complex of five homes for troubled and needy youths. Ray Chandos, who lives within view of the site, is seeking a court order to force the Orange County Planning Commission to set aside its Oct. 2 approval of permits that clear the way for building on part of the 76-acre parcel, which is on a ridge between Rose and Hickey canyons.

Boys Town USA is moving forward with plans to build five homes for troubled and needy youths on a 76-acre parcel here, despite unflagging opposition from neighbors and environmentalists who say the complex will spoil a scenic ridgeline. The cluster of homes, which will house 30 youths, recently survived a legal challenge by opponents, who alleged that the project will violate county environmental limits on grading.

Boys Town no longer resembles the lowly orphanage immortalized in the 1938 film classic. In fact, Father Flanagan might not recognize it today. The barracks-style dormitories have been replaced with $300,000 homes, where both boys and girls are supervised by married couples rather than priests. And scaled-down versions of the Nebraska-based Boys Town are popping up all over the country--the latest one planned for Orange County.
