After 14 years, it's time to approve the Laetitia development

The Reserve at Laetitia has been in the planning process for nearly 14 years. The family owners of Laetitia Vineyard and Winery have worked to meet every request the county has made for this Ag Cluster project: archeological studies, road improvements, land buffers near homes, restricted landscaping, site plan reworks, emergency access, and an onsite water treatment and recycling plant. Three hydrology experts have stated there is more than enough water to serve the residents. The Reserve is a forward thinking project that will contribute handsomely to our local tax revenue coffers to the tune of $4.5 million in property taxes, half of which will go to the Lucia Mar Unified School District. It’s time to say yes to this tremendous opportunity, as we may not get another chance.
