Sierra Club and San Luis Obispo County settled a lawsuit on the Cayucos Viewshed Ordinance. In 2007, the ordinance was voted into law effectively making the 53 square miles of oak-covered, rolling hills of central California vulnerable to development. The new settlement repeals the ordinance and the county is now preparing a county-wide viewshed and hillside protection ordinance. The Santa Lucia Chapter played a key role in the victory by making the ordinance a campaign issue in the 2008 election for the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors.
