ORCUTT, Calif. - With two north county supervisors voting no, a housing development project near Clark Avenue and Highway 101 has been approved by the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors.
North county supervisors Bob Nelson and Steve Lavagnino voted against the housing plan. All three south county supervisors, Gregg Hart, Das Williams and Joan Hartmann, voted yes.
Orcutt residents who live near the project site spoke at Tuesday night's meeting during public comment with mixed reaction to the project proposal.
One concern of the project is the effects of traffic on nearby neighborhoods.
The house project is set to be located in "Site 3" of the Orcutt Community Plan, near the SunnyHills Mobile Home Community.
The project will bring new 119 homes to Orcutt on small parcels of land while leaving open space for nature and trails.
