Naples Property (AKA Santa Barbara Ranch)
Gaviota and Naples CoastlineThe Santa Barbara Ranch Project consists of a residential estate development on the Gaviota coast, two miles west of the City of Goleta. Two basic alternatives are proposed: a 54-unit planned development on the 485-acre Santa Barbara Ranch and a 72-unit planned development encompassing Santa Barbara Ranch plus the adjacent 2,769-acre Dos Pueblos Ranch.

Both alternatives include development of an equestrian center, agricultural support facilities, an employee duplex, public amenities (including access road, parking and restroom, hiking, biking, equestrian trails near the coastal bluff, an educational kiosk and a coastal access stair structure), and creation of conservation easements permanently protecting agricultural uses and open space.
