Charolais Ranch Subdivision

    LandWatch cautions the Board of Supervisors to proceed carefully in considering the proposed 26-unit Charolais Ranch Subdivision Project. From all indications, this is the wrong project in the wrong place. It is a sprawling development, lacks affordable housing, sits in a High Wildland Fire Hazard Area, lacks a sustainable water supply, adds to the water quality and traffic problems, and destroys oak woodlands.
