The Santa Barbara County Planning Commission on Wednesday voted 4-1, with Commissioner Brown dissenting, to approve Santa Barbara Ranch, a 72-home project proposed by developer Matt Osgood on the Naples townsite as well as part of Dos Pueblos Ranch in Gaviota.

Next up for the developer will be a county Board of Supervisors hearing Oct. 7.
