The Flea

Done with spring cleaning and ready to let go of some of your treasures or just need to clean out the garage or closet? Remember, this weekend and the last weekend of every month is free tailgating at The Flea. So pack up your car or truck and head to The Downs. Tailgaters’ gates open at 6:30 a.m with The Flea welcoming customers at 8 a.m. for those of you interested in shopping for great and fascinating deals.

Garden supplies, beer making supplies, fabric, yarn, doll house, wood stove and much more.

Community Breakfast

Don’t forget the Fourth Annual Red, White and Blue Community Breakfast 9-11 a.m. next Saturday, July 5 at the Community Center. Great food, great conversation, community updates and news including information on our first annual community photo contest.

Santa Fe Canyon Ranch

The following notice is in regard to the remaining non-County owned portion of the approved Santa Fe Canyon Ranch Development.

“Ranch at Santa Fe Canyon LLC is asking to have 845 acres separated from the master plan for Santa Fe Canyon Ranch and to be allowed one swimming pool. Development Permit #13-5131 with hearings before the County Development Review Committee at 4 p.m. July 17 and before the County Commission at 5 p.m. on August 12.”

This proposed separation will be discussed at the LCVA Board meeting on July 7. LCVA understands the separation is to allow the 845 acres to be sold to a single family who intend to maintain the property as a ranch. LCVA also understands the family will also be purchasing the water rights connected to the property.
