Rafael Meadows/Los Ranchitos Reviews

1 review
This area is beautiful, laid back, and innovative related to technology and energy efficiencies. One of the main reasons that I am not currently completely satisfied with the area is because of the reaction the state (CA) has had to the drought. After living in another area that has been susceptible to drought, I am surprised that after such a long time dealing with this water shortage that there are little to no real regulations in place to reduce water usage. Overall it is a wonderful area and I hope that the water shortage issues are figured out so that we can stay here for a long time.
