Politics

In the state legislature Laguna Hills is located in the 33rd Senate District, represented by Republican Mimi Walters, and in the 73rd Assembly District, represented by Republican Diane Harkey. Federally, Laguna Hills is located in California's 48th congressional district, which has a Cook PVI of R +8 and is represented by Republican John Campbell.

Emergency services

Fire protection in Laguna Hills is provided by the Orange County Fire Authority with ambulance service by Doctor's Ambulance. Law enforcement is provided by the Orange County Sheriff's Department. There is also the Saddleback Memorial Medical Center, a hospital with an emergency room, where a 14-pound male baby boy was successfully delivered- setting a hospital record- in December 2008.

Education

Laguna Hills is served by the Saddleback Valley Unified School District. Laguna Hills students attend a variety of high performing elementary schools, and for middle school attend either La Paz Intermediate School or Los Alisos Intermediate School in neighboring Mission Viejo. The city has its own high school, Laguna Hills High School, the smallest school in the district and one of the smallest in south Orange County with under 1,700 students.

Nellie Gail Ranch

The ranch sits on a promontory within the city and is a contrast to the higher density neighborhoods that surround it. It is one of the better-known upscale communities in the state and is not gated. Nellie Gail is a Planned Unit Development of 1407 lots on 1350 acres (5.5 km˛) and consists of a mixture of tract and custom houses in an equestrian setting, with homes ranging from 1,700 to more than 10,000 square feet (160 to 930 m˛). It is one of only a few communities left in Orange County zoned for large lots and equestrian trails, and joins only Anaheim Hills, Villa Park, and Orange Park Acres in their respective communities that limit the density of the homes in the county .

The community includes several large parks, miles of equestrian trails and arenas, as well as substantial open space with acres of trees.

Nellie Gail's reputation as an upscale California community is softened by its equestrian setting and residential focus, unlike that of the Beverly Hills or Newport Beach. The community also shuns what it perceives as the flashy, commercial "nouveau riche" reputation of other wealthy communities in the area.

The OC Weekly frequently pokes fun at Nellie Gail and Laguna Hills. Its October 19, 2001 issue gave Laguna Hills a tongue-in-cheek "Best of OC" award:

[Laguna Hills has] the tony distinction of having crosswalk buttons set high so ultra-rich Nellie Gail Ranch residents can reach them while on horseback.

The Nellie Gail Ranch has also been mentioned in movies such as "Wild Things" (1998) and even newspaper comics like Bil Keane's "The Family Circus." Such references usually make fun of the wealth of the Ranch's inhabitants. Personal residences have also been featured in advertisements for Lexus and other luxury car brands.

They even have a official web site: http://www.nelliegailranch.org
