While Coto de Caza Accident Rate is at all time high, patrol is 25% down from lawsuit mitigation strategy, while CZ Master Association Board of directors encourages additional traffic.
To make matters worse, while the CZ Master Association allowed as significant drop in CHP patrol hours, it continues to encourage additional traffic in the community:
- The CZ board's continues its CZ subsidies to accommodate population changes not in the dues-paying CZ community, but in subsidized communities such as the Estates, the Villages, the Stables, the Golf Club and now the Coto Polo Arena, such as the expenditure to build a turn-out lane by the un-manned North Gate, servicing mostly non-CZ residents. At that time, we asked CZ directors Xochitl Yocham and Bruce Banigan to let CBJ readers know the compelling argument used by the CZ board to spend the CZ resident's money on this new turn out lane- we never got a response.
- CZ board lobbied the county to re-zone the Hunt Club property, otherwise known as the Khlada development, arguing that rezoning increases property values, creates jobs and promote the Coto LifeStyle™
- The board made a similar argument to support the Coto Polo Arena as described in the piece Coto De Caza Subsidies Qualify as Bellisimos. In that instance, the CZ board argued that the Polo Arena would NOT increase traffic in the community – California Highway Patrol (CHP) collected over a ten-year period including three fatalities, clearly show that argument was also flawed.
- Public safety was also compromised when the CZ board of directors implemented the new online registration process and in the last few days is having it available to people outside the community as

Taking a page from the Obama Administration's Playbook, the CZ Master Association is creating jobs, with your money
Coto de Caza, CA – the CZ Master Association is lobbying the county of Orange to re-zone the Hunt Club property, otherwise known as the Khlada development, using flawed reasoning: It argues that rezoning increases property values, creates jobs and promote the Coto LifeStyle™
The association used a similar argument to spend frivolously in the Dog Park and to support the construction of the Polo Arena. Here are the facts: The association continues to subsidize non-dues paying residents and or service providers at the tune of over $3 million per year, continues to promote increased traffic and consequently increase liability and the potential for traffic accidents, not to mention that the Coto LifeStyle™ originally described as rural and bucolic is now suburban Arizona Look.

Coto de Caza and Ladera Ranch 1Q2011 Public Safety Review
Coto de Caza, CA –By its own words and actions, it is fair to argue that Coto de Caza’s local governance is not only apathetic when it comes to public safety, but its own actions actually result increase the risk to residents. Worse, seems like adults in Coto de Caza have similar views as the local governance.
Our research over close to ten years indicate that whether a community is safe or not, is primarily a function of residents and local governance, not law enforcement. Consider that when a city in Orange County is deemed the safest city, what about the other 11 cities or the unincorporated areas? What about Coto de Caza with the highest crime rate in history in early 2010. After all, only common denominator is that the OCSD is the law enforcement agency. What does the OCSD do differently in the safest city, as opposed to the least safe city under its watch?
Coto de Caza's Traffic Incident Rate at Critical Danger Levels
Coto de Caza, CA - While the Coto de Caza's total population has been shrinking for the last ten years, including placement of 17 property liens for the month of January 2011 out of roughly 3500 homes, the policies pursued by the CZ Master association board of directors, the local governance, have consistently increased traffic with a reduction in CHP patrol hours, with predictable results. Consider that for close to a decade, we have consistently shown conclusive evidence that there is a direct correlation between the extent of the CHP traffic enforcement efforts and the number of traffic accidents in the community.

Coto de Caza Fires the CHP - Again!
Coto de Caza, CA - The CotoBuzz Journal has documented the one-sided hate-hate relationship between the CZ Master Association board of directors and law enforcement agencies in general, and the California Highway Patrol (CHP) specifically (CHP). In an open board meeting for example, a board member called the Orange County Sheriff's Department (OCSD) extortionists! Despite the public abuse the CHP has received from the Coto de Caza board of directors ever since the board was coerced into bringing the CHP back for pro-active traffic patrol, figures indicate that the CHP has been doing its job: - The Chart below was published Sept. 30, 2006.
