Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Mission Indians APN 143-242-01, 02; 143-252-01, 02
Document Type
BIA - Tribal Notice of Decision
Present Land Use
The Tribe has no plans to change the use of the properties from its current landscaping and recycled water irrigation uses.

Document Description
Note: Supplemental The subject property encompasses ~2.11 acres more or less, commonly referred to as APNs associated with Mooney and Escobar. The property is adjacent to highway 246 which runs along the Santa Ynez Reservation and is contiguous to the Reservation. By placing the parcels into trust, the Tribe is able to irrigate the landscaping with recycled water generated by the Tribe's wastewater treatment plant, instead of the potable water which is now currently used. The purpose of the proposed fee-to-trust transfer will be to maintain such uses under the jurisdiction of the Tribe for future long range planning, including the ability to use its resources in a more environmentally proactive way. The property will serve to enhance the Tribe's land base, which supports tribal self-determination.
