Local groups that have worked for years to preserve pristine property on the Gaviota coast filed a notice of appeal in state court Thursday, challenging a July 2012 decision by a Santa Barbara County Superior Court that upheld the county's 2008 approval of a subdivision to include more than 70 homes.
The Environmental Defense Center, Naples Coalition and Surfrider Foundation say the site of the proposed Naples development project is home to rare species, sensitive habitats, and breathtaking views.
The groups say since the 2008 approvals, the original project applicant lost the ranch to foreclosure, but that First Bank of Missouri is now trying to sell the property to interested parties.
