VENTURA, Calif. (AP) - The developer that wants to build 55 luxury homes in Ventura may donate hundreds of acres to a conservancy group.

The Ventura County Star reports (https://bit.ly/1Fc0xa0) Regent Properties made the announcement Monday, ahead of the Ventura Hillside Neighbors’ Tuesday night community meeting for project opponents.

Regent originally planned to dedicate 175 acres as open space with access to public trails from Hall Canyon to Grant Park. The expanded plan adds 547 acres.

The land would be donated to the Ventura Hillsides Conservancy.

City officials can reject the project, which Regent development president Daniel Gryczman says would eliminate the possible land donation.

He said with construction at least three years away, he hopes proposing expanded conservation land raises awareness and inspires people to express their support for the project.
