What Rancho Murieta has to offer
Rancho Murieta is unique because of the people who live here. That is what we have to offer developers who want to join our community. We have all day 4th of July activities, our own fair where kids and teens can enjoy carnival rides in safety, a summer concert series and so many teams and groups and activities all because of volunteers, donations and residents. We have fishing, trails, a Country Club, golfing programs, golf courses, tennis, pickle ball and more. Great schools, great neighbors.
What the developer needs to offer potential home buyers is a reason to live here. We need a planned community center with a pool. Our trail system is unique and the current trail plan submitted by the developer includes many of our open space trails. If you include the Cosumnes River and the community that new residents would be joining, there is no place else in California that offers what Rancho Murieta offers.
The one thing missing on the trail map is the originally planned dedicated equestrian trail around the perimeter of Rancho Murieta. This trail would also provide a much needed fire break between Rancho Murieta and surrounding properties.
The land around our water reservoirs needs a separate letter in itself but the County should see it as an opportunity to save existing trees in a very sensitive and expensive area to develop for the many other oaks trees that will need to be removed during development. The open space could be put in a land trust by the local developer forever becoming a part of Rancho Murieta history.
And maybe PTF could help with the Country Club. They are the reason Rancho Murieta exists, were owners of property in the community for a long time and were the prior owners of the club. Certainly they must know that a small club of our size could never solve their retirement fund problem.
