November 29, 2016 (Campo)- If you’ve got a hankering to own a 2,160 acre cattle ranch, you may want to mosey on out to rural Campo and saddle up to see the Star Ranch. The large property is on the market—and the owner is willing to consider offers on any of nine parcels separately or together. (View offering proposal).
A 455-unit housing development has been proposed on the site, drawing opposition from some neighbors concerned about impacts on groundwater supplies, traffic and loss of rural character. Now the owner has put the site on the market-- and is giving neighbors the first opportunity to purchase all or part of the sprawling rural property.
