Ross Chun has been a resident of Aliso Viejo for more than 12 years. He and his wife Suzanne chose this beautiful city to raise their two children, Sarah and Evan, because of its fine schools, diverse recreational activities, and attractive business opportunities. Ross and his family have always been active in the community, local schools, and in city events, enjoying all that Aliso Viejo has to offer.
Ross serves the City of Aliso Viejo as the Vice Chairman of the San Joaquin Transportation Corridor Agencies (TCA) and Transportation Corridor System. He initiated the formation of the Environmental Ad Hoc Committee for the TCA and currently serves as Vice Chair. Ross was appointed to the Transportation and Communication Policy Committee by The League of California Cities, and to the Energy and Environment Committee for the Association of California Cities Orange County, as well as an alternate member for the Coastal Greenbelt Authority.
Ross began his volunteerism in Aliso Viejo with an appointment to the Parks and Recreation Committee where he worked for almost 4 years to ensure the Aliso Viejo Community Association’s 21 parks were maintained beautifully and with a focus on effective management and fiscal responsibility. During his tenure, he was elected as Pacific Grove's Delegate to The Aliso Viejo Community Association, representing his district to the master association and in city matters that affect his neighborhood and the community.
In 2006, Ross was elected to the Aliso Viejo Community Association Board of Directors where he served as the Board Secretary, Vice President, and four times as President, leading the Board in developing policies that support the community's 21 parks, slopes and common areas, and its popular seasonal events. During his three terms as an AVCA director, Ross had an opportunity to work with the City Council and staff to best serve the community.
Ross was appointed by the City Council to Aliso Viejo's first Planning Commission, where he served with his fellow commissioners to review development plans and make recommendations to the Aliso Viejo City Council. As a Planning Commissioner, he met with city staff, residents and current and potential vendors to review and discuss proposed plans until the commission was later dissolved. Ross has donated countless hours to non-profit charities, raising money to fight cancer, support scouting, and preserve natural resources and the environment, as well as supporting the Capistrano Unified School District and local public and private schools. Organizations such as The Laguna Canyon Foundation, Surfrider Foundation, American Cancer Society, Girl Scouts and Savannah’s Organic Ranch have benefited from Ross’ dedication to volunteerism and interest in supporting worthwhile causes.
Ross continues to serve as an AVCA delegate and maintains his business in Aliso Viejo, consulting on environmental issues and volunteering his company time and resources to help local schools to develop new educational programs. The Chun family has recently grown with the adoption of "Girlie," the rescue dog. The entire family can be seen enjoying local parks, events and walking to school during the year.
