Loma Rica Ranch a winner

We are disappointed by recent negative comments regarding this proposed new development. We hope to one day sell our house and move to one of the Loma Rica Ranch condos. The prospects of less home maintenance, more time for things we enjoy, and the possibility of walking from home to parks, restaurants and shopping are very appealing.

Of Loma Rica Ranch’s 450 acres, two-thirds are to be left open space. That’s 300 acres! This space is to connect with existing trails, and be open to the public. We don’t think any other development now under consideration can offer this. A variety of housing is planned, centered around village sites, so that much of what we now drive to would be within walking distance of the homes. The old barn mentioned in Ms. Burngard’s letter is to be preserved as part of an active farm and public garden.

We aren’t connected with any promoter or developer – we are just a couple of seniors eyeing the current growth of this area, which we think is likely to continue. We think that among proposed developments, Loma Rica Ranch offers the most environmentally responsible and intelligent growth.
