About Annexation Support the City!

 
 

On June 24, 2010, the City of Temecula went before L.A.F.C.O. (Local Agency Formation Committee) for the third time. 

1st Request: 4500 acres that included the Santa Margarita Ecological Reserve and the proposed quarry site. 
2nd Request:  Ecological Reserve and some property near by but not the proposed quarry site. 
3rd Request: The same as the 2nd request. L.A.F.C.O. has agreed to this 3rd request, provided the city gives up its SPHERE OF INFLUENCE on the proposed quarry site.

 

This annexation proposal should take effect by September, however there is still some opposition to this annexation.  So we must keep our fingers crossed.  Again, we will keep you informed.
