County approves map for Butterfield Trails5
May 22, 2013On Friday, May 17, the County Planning Commission voted 9-0 to approve the Butterfield Trails Tentative Map. The County land planning staff who worked on the application said it was very unusual to present a project without any opposition, and that several letters of support were received.
In April the VC Planning Group endorsed the plan to put 71 residences onto 59.5 acres located near Valley Center Road & Sunday Drive with 28.6 acres dedicated to open space.
Wayne Hilbig, developer of the project, told The Roadrunner, "I am very appreciative of the input and support from the VC Planning Group over the eleven years this project has required to obtain a Tentative Map."
In a related development, Hilbig's company Cielo Vista Land LLC closed escrow May 10 on the sale of 16 finished lots within Woods Valley Ranch. The buyer was the Michael Group who had the deed recorded in a newly formed LLC.
Hilbig said, "They tell me their plan is to begin construction very soon."
