The Dana Reserve Project will develop over 288 acres between Willow, Sandydale, Pomeroy, Hetrick, and Cherokee on the westside of Nipomo. The Environmental Impact Report (EIR) identified 19 Un-mitigatable and significant issues including:
- Housing (imbalanced housing to job ratio, greatly increasing traffic in an already traffic congested area)
- Transportation (increase in traffic impact the surface roads throughout Nipomo)
- Air Quality
- Greenhouse Gas Emissions
- Land Planning (multiple elements of the project are vastly out of alignment with the South County Area Plan, including how this land was intended to be developed vs the present project).
- Biological impacts (3948 mature oak trees to be removed, federally endangered species to be removed, special habitants to be removed.)
There are many significant impacts from the Dana Reserve Project that will negatively impact the whole Nipomo Community. The nature of these impacts also set a dangerous precedent for future large developments in San Luis Obispo County.
