In 2003 the Olsen Ranch was annexed into the City of Paso Robles. The City contracted Moule & Polyzoides to create a specific plan and EIR for the properties which was completed in late 2007. The city then conducted a traffic study which was completed in 2009. The city will allow for the proposed 673 units but may allow for additional density depending on the proposed plan. The city has indicated that they will require reimbursement for some of the prior planning work already completed.
- Paso Robles is one of the fastest growing cities within San Luis Obispo county and has a unfulfilled need for new housing stock to meet this growing market demand.
- The Olsen Ranch is one of only a few large properties able to be developed within the city limits. Development outside of the city is currently limited due to water constraints.
