Save Naples Coalition Sustains Minor Setback


There was a small setback for the Save Naples crowd this week at the Santa Barbara County supervisors meeting. Via a 3-2 vote (supervisors Salud Carbajal and Doreen Farr dissenting), the Save Naples Coalition, represented by attorney Marc Chytilo, lost its appeal of a Planning Commission–approved lot line adjustment for Dos Pueblos Ranch (DP), the property just up coast from Naples. The lot line adjustment, which takes the roughly 2,000-acre DP property and reconfigures it from two lots approximately 1,980 acres and 30 acres in size to two new lots some 1,690 and 360 acres in size, was being bemoaned for, among other things, working against the agricultural leanings of the neighborhood as well as being in violation of California Environmental Quality Act protocols. The lot line tweaking now makes a key component of the approved Naples development project possible as it calls for the purchase of the new 360 acre chunk to become part of the project’s inland portion.
