Re "Reining in Spending in Mission Viejo," April 28: I was alarmed to see a letter from Rod Freed saying that he had read in the Los Angeles Times that overruns had pushed the cost of the new Mission Viejo City Hall from $12 million to $22 million. There were no cost overruns on this project, and neither of these dollar figures are correct. I am writing to set the record straight. Two years ago, in an advisory vote, 74% of Mission Viejo's voters endorsed a proposal to build a city hall "on land already owned by the city across the courtyard from the Mission Viejo Library at a total construction and financing cost of approximately $57.7 million over the next fifty years."

Re "O.C. Builders Reach Their Final Frontier," June 15: Having been born and raised in Orange County, I have come to a number of conclusions about life here: There is little pride in the beauty of the land or for the wildlife that lives on it. Landowners, especially rich ones, usually get their way, and often claim to be working for the common good. People would rather participate in over-development's miseries (traffic, pollution, lack of open space, lame public transit, scarce affordable housing)

Re "Critics Question Legality of County Talks," Jan. 15: For some time, Times editorial writers have been calling upon Orange County leaders to set aside differences and find ways to work together to solve the housing, transportation, and water quantity and quality problems facing this region. Yet when 65 board and staff members from various county agencies recently attended an intensive two-day leadership symposium at the UCLA Conference Center at Lake Arrowhead, The Times did not applaud their efforts.

If the 68-year-old Laguna Beach Festival of Arts moves to San Clemente, there's a good chance that Mission Viejo Mayor Sherri M. Butterfield will be branded as the Pied Piper who led the march. Butterfield is the target of a recall effort as president of the Festival of Arts board of directors because she and the board recently entered into exclusive negotiations to move the seminal summer arts show to San Clemente.
