Town Of Moraga

Moraga Adobe Saved

On April 18, the Friends of the Joaquin Moraga Adobe, the developers from J & J Ranch, neighbors and the subcommittee from the Moraga Town Council celebrated the completion of an agreement that jointly preserves the Adobe and its unobstructed front porch views. The negotiations initially stalled in 2012 when the Friends approached the Moraga Town Council and asked for assistance in preserving the oldest surviving structure in Contra Costa County. A Council subcommittee worked with the developers and Friends, offered suggestions for compromise, and encouraged the two parties to begin talks anew. With the signing of an agreement and the $10,000 first installment from the Friends’ share of preservation costs, the partnership and preservation have started successfully.
