Attention Laguna Lake residents:
There are three large residential/commercial projects currently in the city’s planning process that will significantly affect our area: San Luis Ranch (former Dalidio Property), a project of 580 homes (only 34 homes deemed “affordable”) plus 350,000 square feet of commercial/office and a 200-room hotel; Avila Ranch (at the corner of Vachell and Buckley Roads), a project of 720 homes plus 20,000 square feet of commercial; Froom Ranch (adjacent to Home Depot), a senior living complex, 120-room hotel, 30,000 square feet commercial, plus housing.
San Luis Ranch completed the environmental review process and the report specifies significant unavoidable impacts to traffic and air quality. The developer is requesting to build 224 (only 12 deemed “affordable”) of the 580 homes without the Prado Road overpass being funded that could relieve some of the traffic congestion. Therefore, all the traffic from these homes will enter and exit Madonna Road and LOVR. Additionally, many trees will be removed to make room for this project. While affordable housing is desired, it shouldn’t destroy the extraordinary qualities that make our city a desirable place to live.
Please attend the City Council meeting July 5 at 6 p.m. to express your concerns.
