Click on the photo for the full size.
The other day I woke up thinking that I gotta take photos of the fields at the end of Hillcrest Road. Before they are no more. One thousand plus homes will be going in and beyond what you see in the photo. Santana Ranch. The development was approved last November. Anyone know when the building will commence?

I will miss the open space.

  4. Even though we make our living in the building trade I hate seeing great expanses of green disappear.

  5. What a beautiful spot. Sad how many natural landscapes are lost to development.

  6. In British Columbia we have an Act that is supposed to protect farmland from being developed, but unfortunately it doesn't always accomplish what it should.... very sad to see those beautiful fields disappear.

  7. The little city I am from in Central KY fights tooth and nail to keep more developemnt from eating up our precious bluegraa/horse land. Some people just feel the need to be richer. My thoughts are always "Who buys these houses?" They never truly become part of the town, just use it as a bed room commmunity. Anyway I'll step off my soap box and say that I am enjoying your pictures.

  8. For those who knew what was before, it is sad. For those who move in... it will be home. Just too bad - there is something nice about wild open space.

    nice post. Thank you,

  9. Alphawoman, I'm glad you're enjoying the photos. I appreciate your comments. With all the foreclosures that have happened and are still going on in our area, I sometimes wonder who would be buying the new houses.

    Meryl, you make a positive point that I must remember to keep in mind. :-)
