Pioneering Moragans may be applauding today’s ceremony marking the preservation of the old Carr Ranch property south of town – acreage near and dear to the hearts of those who have hiked its hills.

As we first reported when we first got wind of this agreement, interested parties hashed out a deal to keep the ranch’s 604 acres together and undeveloped, with the John Muir Land Trust and East Bay Municipal Utility District coming to terms with the Carr family in a deal to preserve the land in perpetuity.

EBMUD will hold the title for the property, with John Muir Land Trust providing public access and recreational opportunities. The sizable chunk of wildness (as close to early California as you can come with native creatures and landscape) is currently scheduled to open for public use in Fall of this year.

  1. Are you sure you wouldn’t rather cram another thousand houses in there? That way we’d really bung up traffic in town and we would have to get to know one another because no one would be able to go anywhere!
