WE Watch Board of Directors has voted to endorse and support the Save Our Solvang citizen group which is opposing Solvang City Council’s move to annex 15 parcels of land to the City of Solvang. WE Watch feels “growing” Solvang would be to the detriment of Solvang’s small town character and to the Valley’s rural ambiance. For more information on this issue, contact one of the following: Susan Belloni, Susan Bott or visit Save Our Solvang .
Update: after Solvang City Council voted to drop the annexation move, Save Our Solvang is working to have them develop an Urban Growth Boundary initiative for the next general election in 2020. SOS presentation to Solvang City Council was Monday, September 10.
