A residential development project approved Wednesday by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors is set to bring 125 new homes to Ramona.

The Cumming Ranch Project will build 125 new homes on 226 acres just west of Ramona’s town center, near State Route 67 and Highland Valley Road/Dye Road.

The project will also create new habitat for the Ramona Grasslands Preserve, which is home to grasslands, coastal sage scrub and various animals, including eagles, hawks, San Diego fairy shrimp and toads.

A total of 457 acres of biological habitat will be dedicated to the preserve. Additionally, the Cumming Ranch Project will also create 2.42 miles of public trails.

Originally, proponents sought to build 166 homes and an 18-hole golf course on 515 acres. However, supervisors rejected that request.

With the help of proponents, Ramona’s community planning group and the County, this new proposal was drafted to include fewer homes and more open space in the area, eventually leading to approval.
