Complaint filed in bid to block Chumash development


A complaint has been filed against the County of Santa Barbara to stop it from allowing the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians to develop more than 1,400 acres of agricultural land in the Santa Ynez Valley, which has also been called Camp 4.

The complaint outlines an assertion that the county cannot agree to a development that violates the Santa Ynez Community Plan, according to a news release from Cappello & Noel LLP, the firm that is representing the San Lucas Ranch in its case against the county.

That plan controls development in the Santa Ynez Valley and was developed to protect the Valley’s rural character.

An application for a temporary restraining order was filed on Oct. 24.
