Viva La Pata

La Pata History:
A road first penned in 1956.
At that time, RMV Corp (their land) had it in mind
to develop the San Mateo Watershed, all the way
to Caspers Park, approximating Garden Grove etc.

The crushing burbs SC'ers fled from.

I've seen the original drawings.
Blanket development as far as the eye could see - east.
SC today, would look like Huntington Beach, sprawling
east to the Cleveland Nat Forest - with La Pata its major
north-south foothills traffic venue. Predicted heavy traffic

numbers back then. Thankfully, it didn't happen.

Important to remember, South County as it looks today,

is a Master Planned Community, beginning at Lake Forest,

down to here, one big-ass pre planned development result,

fed by toll roads.

Fact: Big, sprawling development, to gain approval,
require big roads in & out.

I don't think there's another Planned Development,
the size of South County anywhere (maybe China).
