VICTORY: Orange County Canyons Protected
The proposed Saddle Crest housing development in Trabuco Canyon, California, would have destroyed the area’s ancient oak forests, scenic ridgelines, and other cherished natural resources. That’s why Ray Chandos created a MoveOn Petition to the Orange County Board of Supervisors, asking them to vote against the development. Despite overwhelming support from Orange County residents, including about 2,400 signatures, the board turned its back on the community. But when Chandos and his supporters went to court to fight against the new development, the Saddle Crest approval was overturned, leaving Trabuco Canyon in its natural state to be enjoyed by residents and visitors for decades to come.
