Banning Ranch Update
The Coastal Commission is poised to vote on a developer’s proposal to build houses, shops, and a hotel at Banning Ranch; the largest privately owned, undeveloped parcel of land in Southern California.
The plan would put nearly 900 houses and condos, a 75-room hotel and about 45,000 square feet of shops on about 90 acres. Currently the 401-acre property sustains an ecosystem that supports everything from burrowing owls to San Diego fairy shrimp to California gnatcatchers.
The Banning Ranch Conservancy hopes to save the property.
Come learn about Banning ranch and why we should protect it and get an update of where the Coastal Commission currently stands on the issue.
