Burton Ranch Lompoc

New Homes for the
Lompoc Valley

Burton Ranch Lompoc

Since 2004, the Burton Ranch partners have been working with the Lompoc Valley community to bring needed homes to the “Wye,” a 150-acre parcel of city land off Highway 1 just north Hancock College’s Lompoc Valley Center. Our proposal to build as many as 476 single family and multi-family homes, along with a four-acre dedicated community park, was both annexed to and approved by the City of Lompoc in 2007. Our Development Agreement with the City was recently extended to 2024.

Creates 95-Acre Burton Ranch Chaparral Preserve

As part of the Burton Ranch project, the 95 acre Burton Ranch Chaparral Preserve was created through a conservation agreement with The Land Trust for Santa Barbara County. The Preserve features unique Burton Mesa Chaparral, coastal scrub and oak savannah habitat and is largely surrounded by the Burton Mesa Ecological Reserve which is managed by the California Department of Fish & Wildlife. Popular walking trails connect the Preserve to the state reserve.
